Rapper Freddie Gibbs took to Twitter to reveal that he has been banned by Instagram.

"They just banned me on Instagram," Gibbs tweeted, adding, "End of an era." 

No true fans of Gibbs had to ask why the ban occurred. Gibbs' Instagram stories are a source of humor for many of his fans, but they are often quite graphic, and many of the videos contain gratuitous violence.

"U know it's f*cked up when Instagram call u and tell u that u banned," he wrote in a separate tweet. 

In June, the rapper spoke to GQ about how working with producer, Madlib, as improved his craft.

"I know how to do things better rap-wise than I knew how to do five years ago. I know how to attack songs different. I don't even write sh*t down. You ain't gotta write sh*t down. I know how to, at this point, really corral my energy on the microphone. I can rap all day, all night. I can rap circles around anybody. And the more I rap, the more I learn about rap. The more I learn about music," he told the publication.
