This year on Instagram, rap fans witnessed both Wiz Khalifa and Kanye West become fathers, Drake continued to be the rap world's meme god, and Nicki Minaj showed off more than we were ready to witness (not that we're complaining). Tyler, The Creator held his crown as the king of selfies, Rihanna managed to make headlines for controversial posts, and we were teased with a picture of OutKast that only made rumors of a possible reunion more believable.
Also, Jay Z became subject of one of the funniest rap memes this year, DMX rode a horse, rappers like Rick Ross and French Montana stunted on us by holding furry animals. So check out The 50 Best Hip-Hop Instagram Photos of 2013 and see if your favorite rapper made the cut. If not, there's always next year.
