Rapper Jay Z seems to have joined Instagram, but it looks like he won't be bombarding your news feeds with photos anytime soon.

A mystery account has popped up on the social media platform under the name 'HovSince96'.

It is believed that the account belongs to top rapper Jay Z.

In a matter of hours, the page had already acquired 98,000 followers.

The image shared shows the rap legend and businessman standing next to King of Pop, Michael Jackson, who would have been 57 today.

"Happy Birthday to the King! This may be my first and last post," read the caption.

Jay Z's wife Beyonce (33) is no stranger to the photo sharing site, regularly giving her 44 million followers an insight into her life of luxury.

The couple are expected to appear at the VMAs tonight, their first public appearance in months.

Jay Z, Beyonce and their daughter Blue Ivy have spent most of the summer travelling around the world and holidaying in exotic locations.
