Yeezus has landed on Instagram. Despite tweeting earlier this week that he’s without a phone for the sake of inspiration, Kanye West somehow made his way onto the photo-sharing app.

The few times West has addressed his lack of Instagram presence (on Twitter, of course) have been to debunk a faux account, explain why he’d need to be there on his terms, and tell its users to post pro-Kanye shit in order to attract the eyes of Mark Zuckerberg, who definitely wants to give the rapper shitloads of money.

Perhaps West once took umbrage with Instagram’s censorship but found out about some cool workarounds. Maybe he’s just happy the company unveiled more filtering options and ways to combat harassment. We may never know whatever it took to get the “Famous” singer on there.

But, well, here he is, posting a photo from Total Recall featuring a dated-as-hell car and some brutalist architecture.

There, there. Don’t ask questions. Kanye could pull the plug on Instagram at any minute if you think too long about his art. After all, it’s Kanye’s feed. We’re just scrolling through it.
