In days gone by, we always knew celebs had it better than us but we weren't quite aware of how much better. Times have changed, to say the least.

With the proliferation of social media and picture sharing apps like Instagram, the disparity between our lifestyle and that of our favorite celebs has become extremely apparent, and it's crazy.

Few successful artists choose to live as flamboyantly as those in the business of hip hop, and fortunately (or depressingly) for us, a lot of them are willing to share snippets of their everyday lives with the masses.

We've collected a few pics from the Instagram accounts of several emcees...check 'em out and tell us what you think.
