Welcome to Instagram, Yeezy.
Kanye West is one of the newest members of the IG community and he’s also becoming one of its most popular. The rapper — who is currently on his “Saint Pablo World Tour” — has gained half-a-million followers in just a few hours.
On Sunday morning (Sept. 18), Mr. West shared an image that’s been described as a scene from the film Total Recall. It has no caption, but acts as his official first entry on the social networking service.
In March, ‘Ye publicly discussed his thoughts about Instagram. “I was thinking about getting an Instagram but only on one condition……no one can ask me or try to tell me what to Instagram… It’s my art,” he tweeted.
In the past, Yeezus has had to explain to fans that he does not have an Instagram account, dispelling fake accounts that have popped up through the years.
I DO NOT HAVE AN INSTAGRAM…
