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, French Montana and "mother-in-law" aka his rumored girlfriend's mother Kris Jenner post a selfie together, Drake is eliminated from the NBA playoffs and Ab-Soul shares a kid picture from his surfer days for Throwback Thursday. Check the rest of the week’s top Instagram posts below.

"DUDE SETH ROGAN WORE RANDOM GOLF WANG SHIT FOR LIKE THE WHOLE MOVIE DUDE THANKS ALOT THE MOVIE WAS GOOD AS FUCK CONGRATS DAVE FRANCO AND JERROD! IM PRETTY STOKED."

Can you believe that It's someone's job to keep Nicki Minaj's backside photoshoot fresh? In the picture, Nicki is getting ready to shoot ads for her Myx Fusions Moscato wine line and like a typical diva, has someone prepping her clothes because who wants wrinkles, right? Nicki is wearing what looks like designer swimsuits for the shoot, including this tiny blue number.

After announcing the official title of his upcoming album, These Days..., Ab-Soul participates in the picture loving weekday, Throwback Thursday. The #TBT picture shows little Soulo, wearing a purple shirt and funky printed pants, standing on surfboard (#noBeyonce) with a life size ninja turtle (Raphael because of the red bandana?).
