The Internet is a time capsule in itself, and while all of its contents are accessible, we always appreciate when someone aggregates something dope with a visual component. That’s exactly what the good folks at Complex and @OnlyHipHopFacts did.
Using Instagram as a the central hub, both parties dropped a gallery of rare images of your favorite MCs. The likes of Tupac Shakur, The Notorious B.I.G., Jay Z, DMX, Kendrick Lamar, Kanye West, and more.
“Most people use Instagram to post pictures of what they ate for lunch, their cats, and selfies,” Complex wrote. “But not @OnlyHipHopFacts. Just like its awesome Twitter, which posts nothing but facts about rappers, its Instagram posts nothing but pictures related to hip-hop. And as connoisseurs of randomly awesome and throwback hip-hop photos, even we have to admit we’re impressed with what @OnlyHipHopFacts has to offer.”
