20 best rap lyrics for Instagram captions and posts in 2021

As one of the most popular forms of music out there, rap takes the cake when it comes to creative and quotable lyrics. It’s no secret that huge rap artists of our time like Drake, Travis Scott and Lil Nas X put out incredibly catchy tracks, and you’ll rarely find someone who doesn’t have their own favorite lyric or line from a song they love.

These lyrics also happen to be perfect captions for a great photo you want to post on Instagram, so why spend time racking your brain on just the right thing to say when the perfect caption could be right there in front of you?

Rap works perfectly for this, primarily because the genre is so large and expansive that the list of quotable lyrics that mean something to you, or you just think sound great, are practically endless. There are countless sub-genres of rap too; everything from trap and grime, to drill and hip-hop, and how you choose to express yourself not only lies in which lyric you like, but also the song and sub-genre it belongs to.

And when it comes to rap as a medium of expression, there’s little music out there that comes close to how well a rap track can relate to you or something going on in your life at the time, and can perfectly encompass so many moods. Feeling happy? Why not post a feel-good picture and caption it with a lyric that really expresses that? Perhaps you’re feeling confident? Accompanying your next post with a line that lets people know that it’s a great way to boost that feeling. With this in mind, here are twenty awesome rap lyrics to caption your posts within 2021.
