10 of the Best Hip-Hop Meme Accounts to Follow on Instagram
In the social media age, memes have all the clout.
If the internet is undefeated, it owes many of its championship trophies to the countless repurposed photos, hilariously altered videos and inescapable catchphrases that circulate the World Wide Web faster than a Maury guest can run through back hallways after finding out he "is not the father." One second, something is a run-of-the-mill photo or moment caught on camera. Then, because the internet, in seconds, those same things can be turned into trending topics via a universally relatable caption or catchy quip.
Hip-hop loves a good meme. They’ve been the center of beef, sparked a myriad of viral moments and have been the general source of multitudes of rapper-related LOLs, LMAOs and WAABs over the years. Who can forget when Cardi B’s childhood photo memes nearly shut down the web, or how the memes generated from Drake’s “God’s Plan” video were almost as satisfying as the visual itself.
Memes have even helped some rappers gain media attention and advance their careers. Consider artists like Blueface, whose meme-worthy dance moves and catchphrases have kept his name popping in cyberspace. And remember that guy who claimed Interscope Records hired him to make memes to promote their artists? It's real in these internets.
As the craze has become a staple of social interaction on the information highway, there have been several unique accounts popping up that satisfy rap fans’ itch for the most entertaining memes. XXL compiles a list of some of the best below.
