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, Drake continues in trying to get Skylar Diggins' attention, Andre 3000 and his son Seven pose for a picture, and Nas performs for Dave Chappelle's comedy show in NYC. Check the rest of the week’s top Instagram posts below.

Andre 3000 & Seven

When you have the type of parents that will shuttle 200 wedding guests in a private plane from France to Italy for their extravagant dream wedding, fear not, you'll be getting more than a cake and a dancing clown for your first birthday. Instead of a birthday party, Kim and Kanye West went ahead and threw their princess, North, a Kidchella – yes, a Coachella for kids. The mini music festival was complete with a ferris wheel, face painting, hair braiding, tie-dyed wristbands and music stages. Not that anyone remembers their first birthday, but if it airs in an episode of Keeping Up With The Kardashians, North will have first celebration immortalized on the small screen. Did I mention kids received customized Yeezus shirts? Kanye is for the children.

 

Bonnie & Clyde On The Run Tour Rehearsals

June 27th is an important day in Houston, Texas rap. DJ Screw's famous 35-minute track titled "June 27th Freestyle" went down in history 18 years ago when Screw brought the slurry sound forward in a recording made by Screwed Up Click members Big Moe, Big Pokey, Bird, Haircut Joe, Key-C, K-Luv and Yungstar for D-Mo's birthday. In honor of beloved date, Bun B shared a throwback picture of him, Pimp C and DJ Screw. "Happy June 27! Little known fact: the record on the wall next to my left hand is the test-press of Tell Me Something Good. In January of '92 when we got the test vinyl in I brought it straight to Screw at Club New Jack on Griggs. He was the first DJ to ever play a UGK record. He hadn't even started making screwed up mixtapes yet. Who knew we would become legends? #RIPSCREW #SUC4LIFE," wrote the trill OG in his caption. A little history lesson for your weekend.

 

It's Champagne Papi aka Mr. Steal Yo Girl

Appropriately on the same day as the NBA Draft Day, J. Cole announced that he recruited a new member to the Dreamville team. Cole, who's Dreamville record label has a partnership Interscope Records, introduced Cozz to the family and to show that the love is real, labelmate Bas (and Dreamville's first signed artist) congratulated the West Coast rapper on the big move. The emcee, hailing from South Central, Los Angeles, has also shared a picture of himself singing the official paperwork while wearing a Dreamville hat. Cole is slowly but surely building his dream team with his mantra, "Work hard, stay hungry, make classics." Check out a track from Cozz titled "Dreams," here.

 

Jay Z's Reasonable Doubt Cover Shoot

Back after a decade off, Dave Chappelle kicked off the first night of his comedy show series with musical guests with Nas as the performer. Kanye West crashed the stage last week, but that was just a special treat for the fans. It was not in the schedule. After Chappelle put on a stellar stand-up performance Monday night, Nas in a red fitted blazer took the stage with a 45-piece orchestra and performed nostalgic tracks, perfect for the occasion, off Illmatic, as well as other classic cuts. Watch his performance of "NY State Of Mind," here

 

In Case You Missed It, Rick Ross Does Crossfit

Back in the day when fuzzy bucket hats were in style, T.I. released a song, produced by The Neptunes, titled "I'm Serious," featuring a verse from Beanie Man. The track was the title track for T.I.'s debut studio album which was released in October of 2001 through Arista Records. Needless to say (judging from the artwork), the first and only single from the album didn't do so well and failed to chart on the Billboard Hot 100. T.I. has come a long way from the days of "I'm Serious," but this week, T.I. recognized that it's the single's 13th anniversary and shared a picture of the artwork in homage. "13 yrs ago today a lil arrogant nobody from Bankhead released his 1st single titled #ImSerious prod. By @pharrell & #DaNeptunes feat #BeanieMan..... Who knew we'd be here 13 yrs later,still standing,still solid,still rollin...even stronger!!!! Thx,Love&Respect to each & all who made dis & everything that followed possible. @kawanprather #GhettoVision @Pharrell @jasongeter S/O @therealrapstagram #hustlegangovererrthang."
