Instagram began as something more about dinner pictures than beef initiation. Then it evolved into a video platform for those wanting to give a 15 second glimpse into moments. Somewhere in the middle, celebrities, including rappers, are bypassing the usual press roll for direct fan interaction. While some attempt to give a mystique about themselves, many let it all go in terms of their personal lives. And to think, it’s all from the comforts of their smartphone. Considering the amount of famous folks on the social network, it can be a lot to filter through post displaying everything from their luxurious lifestyle to studio sessions. With that in mind, HipHopDX presents a weekly feature for those looking to have a filtered look into the lives of your favorite notable humans.

This week, French Montana donates $100,000 to Uganda and Erykah Badu is inspired by Frank Ocean.
