Kanye West Joins Instagram, Follower Count Quickly Ramps Up

Rapper and entrepreneur shares cryptic ”Total Recall“ post

One post in and Kanye West already has more than 570,000 followers on Instagram — and quickly counting.

The 39-year-old rapper joined the social media site on Saturday night, sharing his first post on Sunday.

At this rate, he should easily surpass one million followers by the end of the day.

A rather cryptic first post, West shared a still image from 1990’s “Total Recall,” starring Arnold Schwarzenegger.

Maybe Yeezy just thought the dystopian image and futuristic car looked cool. After all, he tweeted earlier last week that “I got rid of my phone so I can have air to create.”

The rapper isn’t new to social media and is known to make waves on Twitter.

Most recently, both West and Drake were drawn into a flame war with fellow rapper Kid Cudi — who called out the artists for “having 30 people write songs for them.”

West also shared this gem on Twitter, after writing a poem about the McDonald’s fast food chain:

While West might dominate the headlines, it hasn’t been a particularly robust year for the “Life of Pablo” rapper, who didn’t manage to crack the Forbes’ recent Top 10 highest-paid hip-hop artists of 2016.

He took in a relatively paltry $17.5 million — his lowest showing since 2011.
