Twitter: home of Lil B curses, the occasional Kanye West rant and where trigger fingers turn to … you know the rest. Over time, rap has made its presence known on Twitter while providing artists with a platform to directly connect with countless fans now at 280 characters at a time.
Our favorite artists, entertainers and influencers use the site as an outlet to vent without a filter, as well as to promote their latest work. With 330 million monthly active users to interact with, feeds can sometimes get overwhelming, which is why HipHopDX curates a list of the week’s best and most memorable tweets from the Hip Hop world.
This week’s installment of Tweets Is Watching includes Phonte revisiting a 2015 Ghostface Killah rant and CupcaKKe announcing a tour.
One of the greatest hip hop rants ever. Rap Twitter was straight comedy the day this dropped. https://t.co/nVwtG45esa
