The artist has only posted a handful over photos to his page since deleting all of his old pics and his most recent, shared earlier today (14 January), is giving some of his followers nightmares. And for good reason.
Basically, it's a skinned monkey.
Ye posted the bizarre and terrifying snap with the caption: "MY LIFE WAS NEVER EAZY."
Unsurprisingly, some of his fans were pretty disgusted by the image, with people urging others not to look at it.
One user said: "Surely Kanye West recent on Instagram isn’t somewhat horrific."
Echoing the sentiment, another warned: "Don't look up Kanye West's latest Instagram post. Worst mistake of my life."
"Please don't look at Kanye West's new album cover (on his ig, but i came across it on twitter). It's a very graphic picture of a skinned monkey," put a third.
While another added: "Looks real. Did he burn this monkey alive? Either way he is a si€K Fu€k."
However, according to reports, it's thought that the strange post is a teaser ahead of a new track dropping later today.
In the photo, Kanye tagged The Game, with whom he is said to have collaborated on the release, which is thought to be titled, yep, you guessed it, 'My Life Was Never Easy'.
The 44-year-old reportedly also worked with Pusha T and DJ Premier on the song and discussed the collaboration during a recorded phone call earlier this week.
He told Premier: "We’re starting a whole… we about to just control the sound of music, it’s up to us now, period.
"We got a song we’re releasing Friday that we wanted you to do a scratch on, if possible."
This comes as the LAPD confirmed they were investigating Kanye as a suspect following a report of battery.
The incident allegedly took place in downtown Los Angeles outside members-only club Soho West at 3am on Thursday 13 January.
A spokesperson for the LAPD told Sky News: "This morning at 3am, officers responded to Santa Fe Ave and Bay Street.
"A battery report was completed with Kanye West as a named suspect.
"No arrests have been made and the incident is being investigated by our Newton Division."
