It started with Diddy (@iamdiddy) Tweeting all day and all night about everything from clean linen to new Ciroc drinks he’d make up on the fly. Kanye West let him finish, and then he joined Twitter (@kanyewest) just last month. Since then the Twitterverse has been infiltrated by West’s theories on art and fashion, along with witnessing the “evolution” of Hip-Hop in the form of a Justin Bieber/Kanye West/Raekwon collaboration (Kanye only follows one person, @justinbieber).
Let’s not forget the Tweets about Mos Def on the “Power” Remix, only to find out it was still Jay-Z (we’re not mad). Studio sessions, banning denim, all of this and more can be found on Ye’s Twitter account. He’s been retweeted incessantly by celebs and pedestrians alike, and it won’t be long before people start unfollowing him (Twitter can be so fickle).
So once Kanye pisses you off for the last time, we have ten other Hip-Hop artists for you to follow.
3. Nicki Minaj (@nickiminaj)
Nicki Minaj has a “Nictionary” of her plays on words and a Team Minaj of faithful followers from quite possibly every corner of the world. It’s sweet watching Nicki talk to her fellow Barbies and offer words of inspiration, while discussing her lasik eye surgery. It’s also the only place to get up to date information on her long-awaited album Pink Friday.
