    Rappers love the 'gram. It gives them a chance to flex their lavish lifestyles with snaps of their latest whip, diamond chain or million-dollar mansion, while also reveal small parts of their personality through racy posts, hilarious memes, family pics and entertaining videos. Along with flaunting their riches, many hip-hop artists use Instagram as a marketing tool to promote their latest single or endorsement deal.

    Whatever their reason for being on Instagram, any credible rapper understands the power of social media and having an engaging presence is necessary for success. With so many artists using the platform, we want to make sure you’re only following the most entertaining, so here are our favourite rappers you need to follow on the 'gram.

    Handle: @iamcardib

    Followers: 76.5m

    Why you should follow: The most entertaining rapper in the game uses her account to promote her music, share memes, post thirst traps and upload hilarious videos of herself discussing all manner of random subjects. Lately, Cardi has also been vocal about the presidential elections, using her platform to endorse the Democratic Party and provide hilarious commentary on the presidential debates. 

    Drake

    Handle: @champagnepapi

    Followers: 72.2m

    Why you should follow: Do we really need to explain why? Drake loves a throwback pic, posting about his beloved Raptors and sharing shots of his famous friends. Toronto’s Own is also a big fan of supporting other artists' projects with a re-post, so you can always find new music through his account. As you’d expect, some of his content is cheesy, like the video of him eating pasta from his bowl-shaped Spotify award, but that’s Drizzy in a nutshell. 

    Gucci Mane

    Why you should follow: Gucci Mane has been using his account to promote artists from his label of late, but normally his feed is a mixture of pictures depicting his luxurious lifestyle and candid shots of his wife Keyshia Ka’Oir. Big Guwop also has a great sense of humour, often posting pics and memes of him before he stopped drinking lean and lost a shit ton of weight, using them to get a laugh while showing how far he’s come.
