They say a picture is worth a thousand words. Unless, of course, you're talking about an embarrassing picture of your favorite rapper—in which case, a picture is worth a thousand Internet abbreviations. Like, OMG! And, WTF? Or, our personal favorite, GTFOHWTB! But no matter what Web slang you attach to these incriminating photos, there's one word that applies to all of them: FAIL!
Over the course of the last few decades, rappers have struck their best B-boy stances for hundreds of thousands of different photos. And while most of them have used the opportunity to throw up signs to rep their sets, throw their arms around adoring fans, or throw us smiles to show off those shiny new grills they just got, a select few of them have been captured in shots that made us want to throw up.
And, thanks to the Internet, these photo fails are now here to stay with us forever. To show you what we mean, Complex decided to take a look back at some of rap's worst Kodak moments in our countdown of Hip-Hop's 50 Worst Photo Fails. Trust us: These pics are worth the clicks.
