Hello Kanye! Rap star finally joins Instagram


Kanye West has launched his own Instagram account.

The outspoken rapper - whose wife Kim Kardashian is a big deal on the social media platform - now has a verified account and has already amassed more than 300,000 followers.

So far he hasn't posted much - just one picture of some sort of car driving past a building.

Kanye has been on Twitter for a while and he has been hinting that he might be ready to add Instagram to his repertoire.

He tweeted earlier this year:

One thing's for sure. Kanye's Instagram will be one to watch.
