Grammy-winning rapper Kanye West is back on his Instagram grind. The hip-hop star has returned to the massive photo-sharing platform with new content.
Yeezy went to IG Tuesday (September 11) morning with a scenic pic and some drawings.

Back in February, Kanye pulled the plug on his Instagram page and terminated his account.
Mercurial mad genius Kanye West has already deleted his Instagram account again after an all-too-brief return to praise his wife Kim Kardashian (and several other high-profile celebrity couples) on Valentine’s Day. Kanye originally deleted his accounts around eight months ago while recovering from an onstage meltdown during his Saint Pablo tour. The resulting public backlash and physical exhaustion of the tour caused him to retreat from public life while earning him a lawsuit and a very angry reference on Jay-Z’s Grammy-nominated album, 4:44.

A day prior, Kanye spent hours putting together pics some of the entertainment industry’s biggest current and former couples on his page.
He started with photos of Madonna and Sean Penn and Barack and Michelle Obama, and by the time he was finished, he had name-dropped Ellen DeGeneres, Sonny & Cher, John & Yoko, Dennis Rodman, David Bowie, Iman, JFK, Jackie O, Mick Jagger, Grace Jones, Serge Gainsbourg, Kid Rock, the dude from Sum 41, a fictional couple from “Sex & the City,” and so many others. The series ended, of course, with photos of West and his wife, Kim Kardashian West. He’s since deactivated his account once more.) (Pitchfork)

Some media outlets singled Ye out for not including longtime friend JAY-Z and Beyoncé Knowles-Carter in his batch of pics.
Kanye West made a very Kanye West return to Instagram after deleting his account last May, posting 55 photos in a row of iconic couples. The series ended with him and his wife Kim Kardashian, as expected. But an interesting omission in West’s list—which included the Obamas, Kennedys, both Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie and Brad and Jennifer Aniston—was Jay Z and Beyoncé. Jay Z and West are longtime friends and collaborators whose relationship was pretty publicly strained for most of last year. (ELLE)
