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.

The Game Clowns Both Meek Mill & 50 Cent
So, this is what it's come to these days ??? Outside of 2pac & B.I.G. dying because their beef got out of control due to the media blowing it out of proportion & us as people adding fuel to the fire with the whole East Coast/West Coast bullshit…. Hip hop beefs were healthy & consisted of rap battles between dope M.C.'s like the legendary KRS-One & Busy Bee beef, the Nas & Jay-Z beef, The Real Roxanne & Roxanne Shante beef, the Ice Cube & N.W.A. Beef, Bone Thugs & The Dogg Pound beef, G-Unit & Murder Inc, shit even me & 50's beef & the list goes on…. Back when your whole neighborhood & city got behind you & supported you….. But now, so much of this bullshit going around, it's even hard for me not to get sucked into this social media way of beefing…. & even though some of these memes be funny as fuck…..

We went from learning from & respecting the O.G.'s to learning from & depending on I.G.'s lol…. Rap all fucked up & niggas is gettin more weird in this shit as the followers pile up….. But hey, since we fightin wit emoji's these days… Thought I'd end my rant with mine ? <—— now go flood baller alert or shade room wit it when they post this cause that's what it boils down to these days ? #KeyboardKillas —> ? #Ethyr #TheBridgeIsOver #TakeOver #Wanksta #NoVaseline #HitEmUp #300Bars to name a few…. #WillTheRealMCsPleaseStandUp
