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, 50 Cent, Young Buck and Kidd Kidd hang out backstage at the "Drake Vs. Lil Wayne" tour and Questlove shares a personal touching story about his first encounter with the late actor Robin Williams. Check the rest of the week’s top Instagram posts below.
