Rapper Jay-Z Finally Joins Instagram

American rapper and music mogul Jay-Z has finally joined the social media app, Instagram.

The 51-year-old rapper joined the ‘Gram on Tuesday and has already amassed over 1 million followers, while following just one, his wife Beyonce, who he’s been married to since 2008 and shares three children with.

He seemingly joined the popular social media network to promote his new Western “The Harder They Fall”, which he served as a producer on.

The rapper’s first post was a new poster for ‘The Harder They Fall’, which debuts on Netflix on Wednesday following a limited theatrical release.

He only said, ‘The Harder They Fall’ in the post’s caption, with Facebook and Instagram owner Mark Zuckerberg being the first to comment on his post with a had-waving emoji.
