Take a look at what went down at the MTV Movie Awards 2014 last night.
For no particular reason other than the fact that animals are fucking cute, we present to you a photo list of rappers chilling with a variety of animals. From the most common, dogs, to baby tigers, penguins, dolphins, parrots and cats, rappers show love for all species, and they also show that no one's too cool for some one-on-one animal time.
Chaining days have always been a great ritual in hip-hop. So much so, that Kanye West made it the grande finale of his music video for "Through The Wire", his first major single.

Like all social media platforms, Instagram has become a hugely popular device not only for the average person but for celebrities and entertainers as well. In this day and age, a person's worth can be determined by how many people like their Insta photo or Facebook status.

Throwback photos have definitely become somewhat of a a novelty at this point, but there's a certain nostalgia a photo can create that is hard to find anywhere else.
