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, Young Thug calls Birdman his “lover” and Papoose continues to shower his wife, Remy Ma, with love through picture posts on his personal account. Check the rest of the week’s top Instagram posts below.

Kanye Balls It Up In Australia

Kanye West took a little time to squeeze in a basketball workout at the Leisure Life Centre, according to The West Australian. ‘Ye, along with wife Kim Kardashian and daughter North, were in Perth, Australia for the first stop of the Australian leg of the “Yeezus” tour. According to the publication, the G.O.O.D. Music leader “worked up a sweat playing off against his entourage including support act, Pusha T.” Apparently, the elderly ladies lifting light kettlebells didn’t mind sharing their gym with a Grammy winner since they “didn’t appear to recognize” him.

Amber Rose Twerks For Love

Twerking for love and twerking for your husband’s #1 album is pretty much the same thing.
