Happy New 己亥年

Happy New Year 2019 from Vernon! He posted a picture of two people who seem to be his parents, at least according to netizens’ comments. Unlike Joshua’s, Vernon’s Instagram updates are more “random,” he often takes a break and doesn’t post about his projects or daily activities, but then is active again and randomly posts information.

Vernon’s update on December 20th, 2018 are three photos of him looking at his phone. Swipe left for more pictures!

Vernon was posing with other rappers at an event. He posted this photo on December 14th, 2018.

Here is his update from December 4th, 2018. He took a picture of a fake skeleton that is wearing slippers. Since there is no caption on this picture, nobody really knows what Vernon means by uploading this photo.
