Kanye West Debuts on Instagram With Cryptic Photo

Kanye West has joined Instagram.

The rapper-designer made his debut on the social networking platform on Sept. 18 with little to say — sharing only a curious image from the film “Total Recall.”


Posted to his Instagram page without a caption, the image shows a scene from Arnold Schwarzenegger’s 1990 sci-fi dystopian action flick featuring “Johnny Cabs” driven by human-like robots.

The Yeezy designer has yet to follow any users on his Instagram account — but has so far attracted more than 700,000 fans.

In March, Kanye — a fan of Twitter — flirted with the idea of joining the photo sharing network, but with a caveat: “I was thinking about getting an Instagram but only on one condition……,” he tweeted, later adding, “no one can ask me or try to tell me what to Instagram… It’s my art… “

Perhaps the entertainer will utilize the platform to promote his latest designs, creating the same sort of buzz that his wife, Kim Kardashian West, commands on Instagram and Snapchat  — where she has debuted exclusive Yeezy shoes for her fans.
