We’ve given you indie Pop lyrics for Instagram captions, we’ve given you Rap lyrics for Instagram captions and we’ve given you lyrics for summer Instagram captions. Now, it’s time to cast a wider net and pull from not just songs,  but movies and other captions for your social media needs. Just because these are guys, that’s not to say that a lot of these captions won’t work for anyone either. There are selections for lines aimed at your significant other, selections for when you feel like bragging, and selections for when you just want to post a random picture and need something cool to go along with it.


1. “I just call her bae to get her hyphy”

2. “Dreams of living life like rappers do”

Kendrick Lamar, ‘Money Trees’

An oldie but a goodie. This K. Dot line from his first album good kid, m.A.A.d city beautifully sums up how we admire Hip-Hop culture and the things we aspire to.

3. “Sometimes we laugh and sometimes we cry, but I guess you know now… baby”

Drake, ‘Laugh Now Cry Later’

A Drake pick for a list of Instagram captions is always a lock.

4. “This is hard but I love you, we fuck up, that’s just life”

Russ, ‘Take You Back’

If you’re looking for something from a lady’s perspective, check out Kehlani’s portion on this same song.

5. “Life is such a fucking rollercoaster, then it drops, but what should I scream for? This is my theme park”

Lil Wayne, ‘Forever’

‘Forever’ featured an all-star cast of Drake, Kanye West, Lil Wayne, and Eminem and we might never see something like that ever again. They all had great verses, but Wayne’s verse might have the most caption-ready lines.

6. “Don’t talk to me like I’m not me, graveyard, I’m up late as shit, I’m with the zombies”

Big Sean, ‘Lithuania’

A fan favorite from Sean Don’s latest album, Detroit 2.

7. “Bitches calling my phone like I’m locked up, nonstop”

Drake, ‘POPSTAR’

DJ Khaled and Drake with Justin Bieber in the video? Money.

8. “Being happy is my goal but greatness is the mission”

Childish Gambino, ‘I’m Alright’

This is a line from way back before Childish Gambino was known to mainstream America as Donald Glover and had big acting placements, but it holds up to this day. 

9. “My n*ggas pick me up and we gon’ light the city up as if the sun had a night shift”

10. “They say people in your life are seasons and anything that happen is for a reason”

Kanye West, ‘Heard ‘Em Say’

Whatever you think about Kanye’s recent antics and music, don’t forget that for years he was dropping classic album after classic album. Late Registration is one of those and ‘Heard ‘Em Say’ was a big single from it.

11. “Your bitch a four to me, I’ma take my girl to Dior this week”

Ty Dolla $ign, ‘Expensive’

Instagram captions allow for you to flex without having to necessarily tell the full truth. If that’s the case with this Ty Dolla $ign line, don’t worry about it.

12. “A loss ain’t a loss, it’s a lesson, appreciate the pain, it’s a blessing”

JAY-Z, ‘Smile’

4:44 was the refreshing piece of music that fans had been wanting from Hov for years and on it came gem after gem. This is just one of our many favorites.

13. “Where my ladies at? Let’s find somewhere we can go crazy at”

14. “My chick could have what she want and go in any store for any bag she want”

T.I., ‘Whatever You Like’

One of T.I.’s biggest hits has some of his best caption-ready lines on it.

15. “They’ve been tryna stop the wave but the wave don’t stop”

Meek Mill, ‘Uptown Vibes’

Meek was rejuvenated with his Championships album and the big single with Fabolous and Anuel AA had some heaters on it.


16. “Remember who you are”

Mufasa, ‘The Lion King’

This quote is simple, but that’s exactly what’s great about it and makes it work so perfectly for a caption on Instagram. The Lion King’s effect on the world and pop culture cannot be overstated…

17. “Hakuna matata”

18. “Our lives are determined by opportunities, even the ones we miss”

Benjamin Button, ‘The Curious Case Of Benjamin Button’

Perhaps it’s too deep for your average selfie, but this line from Benjamin Button (played by Brad Pitt) is special and sobering.

19. “Life moves pretty fast. You don’t stop and look around once in a while, you could miss it”

Ferris Bueller, ‘Ferris Bueller’s Day Off’

An undeniable classic, Ferris Bueller can be as insignificant or significant as you’d like it to be but there’s no debate that this quote from it is special. It’s perfect to put on Instagram early in the day or week to start your followers’ days off right.

20. “Carpe diem. Seize the day, boys. Make your lives extraordinary”

John Keating, ‘Dead Poet’s Society’

Played by the late, great Robin Williams, this one is a spin on a classic and cliché phrase.


21. "It always seems impossible until it’s done"

22. "A man who never tries is like a warrior without a scar"

23. "If it doesn’t challenge you, it doesn’t change you"
