Kanye West is officially an Instagrammer.

The 39-year-old star took to Instagram for the very first time to share a photo with his 419,000 (and climbing) followers on Sunday.

The post doesn’t show his Instagram-famous wife Kim Kardadshian West or his kids, but is shot of a person (potentially Yeezy?) driving a car. The captionless image is somewhat out of character for the outspoken rapper and designer, who has made headlines for his controversial tweets in the past.

West continues his Saint Pablo tour on Tuesday with a show in Houston, Texas.
