These days, you can find everything on the ‘Gram. From updates about your favorite artists to discovering the future of the culture in pretty much every corner of the app itself, no moment goes unnoticed in a mass media driven world. Instagram has long been a mainstay for photographers and video lovers alike, but the app also serves a very special purpose for musicians, celebrities and anyone who wants to get their voice heard and connect with each other. This week’s edition of Instagram Flexin’ includes Mozzy giving back to his city, Mary J. Blige’s Walk of Fame star, Swizz Beatz preaching health, and The Game starting a new project.

Swizz Beatz Preaches Health
Your health is your wealth 🙏🏽 I wanted to start off 2018 by keeping the promise I made to my brother the late great Jay Icepick Jackson. Before he passed ,he urged that we all spread the word about how important our health is. As men we always think we’re invincible ! If that was the case, a great Man and many other great men would still be on this earth. Today I did a Colonoscopy, which many men refuse to do until it’s too late. It only took 2days for the entire process and thank God I’m okay. I wasn’t going to share this but I promised my brother I would spread the word to prevent others from going through what he did🙏🏽 Blessings to all. Your health is your wealth… F@ck Cancer …. #jayicepickjackson 🙏🏽 #icepicjayforever

G-Eazy Drops H&M
Over the past months I was genuinely excited about launching my upcoming line and collaboration with @HM… Unfortunately, after seeing the disturbing image yesterday, my excitement over our global campaign quickly evaporated, and I've decided at this time our partnership needs to end. Whether an oblivious oversight or not, it's truly sad and disturbing that in 2018, something so racially and culturally insensitive could pass by the eyes of so many (stylist, photographer, creative and marketing teams) and be deemed acceptable. I can't allow for my name and brand to be associated with a company that could let this happen. I hope that this situation will serve as the wake up call that H&M and other companies need to get on track and become racially and culturally aware, as well as more diverse at every level.
