Jay Z Might've Joined (and Quit) Instagram

Either Jay Z temporarily joined Instagram, or someone decided to pull a totally believable social media prank. On Saturday, Aug. 29, a user by the name of @Hovsince96 uploaded a throwback photo of Jay Z posing with Michael Jackson, in honor of the late singer's birthday. The caption for the post (which has since been deleted) read, "Happy Birthday to the King." It continued, "This may be my first and last post."

OK, so we all know that Jay Z has 99 problems — but keeping his word isn't one of them. As he (or the mystery Instagram user) promised, the account appeared and disappeared as fast as it came, which is rather puzzling. Seriously, what's up with the Insta-tease Jay?

It's too bad he had to post and run because he might've had a chance to avenge his wife Beyoncé's loss to Kim Kardashian, who recently beat out Queen Bey for the highest number of Instagram followers. Although the account was short-lived, PEOPLE reports that Jay Z's supposed Instagram page managed to rack up 100,000 followers before the vanishing act.

There's been no word on whether the Instagram account actually belonged to Jay Z. However, a post from the rapper's friend and music executive Michael Kyser suggests that it was in fact, the handiwork of Hov himself.

Follow my brother @Hovsince96 ASAP!
