Many of us have pictures we’d never show the world. Your lolgasmic prom pic? Gravy-stained grill at Grandma’s Thanksgiving 15 years ago? Say cheese. You’d never post that on Facebook unless you were being blackmailed. Celebrities, on the other hand, don’t have the luxury of tucking every mortifying moment away from the annals of the Internet. If it were up to the rappers involved, these photos (and one screengrab) would never have been leaked. Laugh at them now. It could be you tomorrow.

11. Young Lil Jon

liljonHey Jonathan, Steve Urkel called. He wants his glasses back.

10. DMX: A man of many mugshot expressions

DMX pretty much has a mugshot for every day of the week.

9. Em as a scrawny kid


It’s funny how much of a difference 20 years and 100 million records can make. It’s equally funny how easily success can alter your disposition.

8. Prodigy as a dancer

If you think about it, the reaction to this picture might have been different if Jay-Z hadn’t made it the focal point of his Summer Jam demolition of Mobb Deep. Everyone would’ve been like, “Aww, look at lil P in his cute “Thriller” jacket.” Instead, it inspired a bevy of nicknames, including my favorite, Ballerina P.

7. Yung Berg’s stolen chain

Not only did Yung Berg become the butt of all chain-snatching jokes after a scuffle in a Detroit nightclub, said chain also became an Internet meme. Within days of the incident, everyone from Trick Trick to some old lady could be seen modeling the chain.

5. Game’s girl has a Change of Heart

At the peak of the G-Unit vs. Game feud, this image from Game’s Change of Heart cameo had him on the defensive. Game later claimed that he was a paid “actor” on the dating show, but the damage had already been done. Chuck Norris would never do Change of Heart.

4. Nicki Minaj before the butt implants?

Nicki-Minaj-Booty Implants
Everyone knows that Nicki Minaj has cakes the size of Appalachia, but did she enhance them with butt injections? These pictures seem to support those allegations. There’s only one way to find out for sure. Without real proof, file this under “Innocent till proven guilty.”

3. Eve’s stripper pics


The year is 2003. Eve is in the middle of revamping her image as an artist and actress when pictures of her in full-on stripper outfit hit the web to the amusement of many. Some of the photos showed the Ruff Ryders’ first lady in a compromising position with another female.

2. Ross as a C.O.


Rick Ross modeled his rap persona after the infamous drug kingpin Freeway Rick Ross. In reality, Rozay’s past resembles that of the men who cuff drug lords. It was a business move, because as he later explained, “In the game we in, it’s real competitive. Competitors have to do what they have to do to.” Bawse.

1. Baby & Wayne kissing

Inspired by Omar Little, Baby shows young thugs everywhere how real G’s get down.
