According to a familiar cliché, a picture is worth a thousand words. Your favorite celebrities—including rappers—are doing less and less press, but luckily their thumbs and smartphones still work. Instagram has provided a way for them to document their lives and/or thoroughly embarrass themselves for our collective enjoyment. The beauty of it all is that you don’t even need to join Instagram, as most rappers are perfectly fine leaving their feeds open for public viewing. And if you’d rather avoid the IG life altogether, we’ve filtered through the top rapper’s pictures and videos and consolidated all the week’s events into one convenient feed.

This week, athletes show their excitement about Lil Wayne's upcoming Tha Carter V album, Rihanna pokes fun at Instagram for giving her a warning after she posted pictures from her topless French magazine cover, and 2 Chainz and Rick Ross walk Floyd Mayweather to his weigh-in for moral support. Check the rest of the week’s top Instagram posts below.

I mean it's still technically in Los Angeles so if there was a stadium change it wouldn't be too far. Why am I overthinking this?

Or could it be Lil Wayne cashing on a favor for the "Kobe Bryant" musical ode from 2009?Kobe Bryant kicked off Tha Carter V season with promo art for the album. After the red Roman numeral on a white background was posted, the internet went wild thinking it was Weezy's album cover.
