Bruh: 8 Hip-Hop Photoshop Fails Starring Your Favorite Rappers

Mr. Shad Moss isn't the only one guilty of a little photoshop fun. 

Bow Wow's latest social media blunder left the rapper-actor at the forefront of Twitter's scathing comical path this week when he shared a fan-flipped image of VIBE's Death Row cover.

Mr. Moss gently reminded fans of his come-up Monday (Oct. 17) with the image. As most hip-hop and Lil Bow Wow fans know, Snoop Dogg took him under his wing before he teamed up with Jermaine Dupri to become a teen sensation. “I was on Death Row at 6. This was the label roster. A fan sent me the pic. It brought back memories,” he said. "Fan sent me the pic its not the original from VIBE I'm like damnit, just took me back I was apart of some legendary sh*t. Blessed.”

Fan-made or not, plenty of rap acts have been guilty of either posting or creating  far-fetched Photoshopped portraits. Here are just a few that made us laugh out loud or roll our eyes.


1. Chris Brown & Tupac

Brown's legacy is bound to down in the history books, but that doesn't mean he's on the same level as Tupac Shakur. In 2015, the entertainer shared on Instagram the final image of the Pac with Suge Knight the night he was shot in Las Vegas...with himself in the backseat. After catching heat for the photo, it was quickly deleted. Also, that MJ pic is something else.

2. The Game & Tupac

Pac fandom continues with The Game. Just two years earlier, the rapper also shared a photo of himself with the legend. This time, the image appeared to show Mr. Taylor as a youth with Pac. With a honorable ode to the rapper for his caption, fans thought nothing of the photo until it was revealed to be fake. Game admitted to VladTV the photo was sent to him by a fan and was his way of honoring the slain artist.

3. Ludacris & Abs 

So this isn't a fail on Ludacris, but a notch for those who slandered the rapper for his CGI abs. Earlier this year, the rapper made his return to music with the single, “Vitamin D.” The video was true to Luda's signature form, with exaggerations and jokes all over, including himself with super-duper tight abs. But it's nothing new really. I mean, have you never seen music videos to "Rollout," "Stand Up" or "Get Back?" It's kind of his thing to be well, animated.

4. Kim Kardashian, North and Kanye West For Vogue

The Kardashian-Wests' Vogue debut was all the talk in 2014. It was not only the couple's first time in the mag, but it was a moment fans got to speculate about Kanye's immortality. Iconic photographer Annie Leibovitz led the shoot, including the photo above that omits the rapper's shadow, giving people a reason to think 'Ye is a vampire. It also allowed fans to add their own pics into the iPad he was holding. We guess everyone won in this fail.

5. 50 Cent & Money

So the money was in the shot, but it turns out it wasn't real. During 50 Cent's bankruptcy trial last year, the rapper explained how much of the cash he flaunted on social media was fake. “Just because I am photographed in or next to a certain vehicle, wearing an article of clothing, holding a product, sitting next to what appears to be large sums of money or modeling expensive pieces of jewelry does not meant that I own everything in those photos,” he wrote, calling the cash "prop money." He added that he was playing up the persona of his rap and troll status. Makes sense to us.

6. Stitches & Allegedly The Game's DMs

The mini-wave of rapper Stitches was more focused on his beefs than raps. In 2015, the rapper found himself in a tiff with The Game after he created a fake digital encounter on Instagram. The act came shortly after his feud with Tyga and false claims of dating the rapper's then-girlfriend Kylie Jenner. The Game would go on to expose Stitches for his actions, reminding us all that photoshop comes in all forms.

7. Meek Mill & Drake/Fab Morvan of Mini Vanilli 

This might've flown under the radar during the Drake vs. Meek Mill war of 2015. Meek Mill's cover art for his diss track towards the rapper was just as painful as the song itself. Keeping up the fraud theme, the rapper imposed Drizzy's face on the body of Milli Vanilli member Fab Morvan. For those who care, the group was exposed for stealing their 90's hit single, "Girl You Know It's True" and would later have their "Best New Artist" Grammy rescinded.  Maybe it was the lipstick or the ghostly OVO logo that took the image over the edge.

8. Boosie Badazz & His Son

There's video footage proving the image is real, but it's still a painful photoshopped image. Shortly after his return from prison, Boosie was accused of photoshopping his son into an image during a family holiday hangout. The rapper told TMZ the image was taken by a professional photographer, who really enjoys playing with the programs' settings.


In spite of so many L's there's also some fan pics worth sharing.

Selena Quintanilla & Drake

This would be a pretty cool pairing.

Selena & Tupac

Many believed this photo was real, but it turned out to be an image of Rosie Perez with the rapper.

Beyonce, Nicki Minaj & Rihanna

The "Holy Trinity" fad rode high as fans wished for the three to put out music together. Three years later, we're still dreaming.

Patrick Thorendahl (Peeje T) and Rihanna

Peeje T's images are what photoshop fanatics dream of. From images of Amber Rose, Serena Williams and Nicki Minaj, the graphic designer became a hero on social media for his creative portraits.

After Teairra Mari's Arrest, 50 Cent Notes Additional Money Owed From Lost Revenge Porn Case

Teairra Mari has just stepped into deeper hot water and 50 Cent is watching it all from the sidelines with a straight face and his hand held out. Back in January, the singer and Love & Hip Hop star was unfortunately on the losing end of a case that sought to bring 50 Cent to justice for leaking a compromising photo of her.

The court ordered Mari to pay Fif $30,000 to cover a portion of his legal fees, but when she was served papers in the airport, she publicly refused to pay him a cent. (She even went on to preview a song about it.) At the time, the Power figurehead's response was straight to the point. “You cannot run from the law, you have been served," he wrote in a mocking Instagram post. "Better give me my money b**ch.”

To take matters a step further, Teairra Mari has now been arrested for not paying 50 Cent what he asked for and has received an addition to the amount owed. "You best be coming up with my money," he wrote on Instagram, reacting to the news of her arrest. "I’m a need 75K now after they add all additional legal fees."

Charlamagne Tha God Makes Kevin Hunter "Donkey Of The Day"

Charlamagne Tha God let the choppa fly Wednesday morning (April 16) when he crowned Kevin Hunter, Wendy Williams' soon to be ex-husband and manager "Donkey of The Day."

The Power 105.1 host and Hunter were once comrades, but their friendship ended when Hunter allegedly grew irate Charlamagne played matchmaker with his longtime friend Wax and his then-mistress now the mother of his newborn daughter, Sharina Hudson.

"Think about that. Big grown-ass married negro from Brownsville, Brooklyn, supposed to be some thorough-ass hood dude upset because he thinks I'm trying to hook his side chick up with my homeboy. Does that not make him a Grade A sucker?" Charlamagne questioned.

The two-time bestselling author was once Williams' protege and in his nearly 13 minute-rant against Hunter, he expressed empathy for the talk-show host. "The reason why I've never had smoke for Wendy is that number one: I feel sorry for her. She was an abused woman on various levels," Charlamagne said.

Charlemagne spoke about the several attempts Hunter allegedly made to destroy his career, including promoting last year's narrative he supposedly raped a woman in South Carolin. The 2001 criminal sexual conduct charge was later dismissed after the radio host provided a DNA sample.

"There are only two people on this planet that I don't give a damn about, and Kevin Hunter is one of them."

Charlamagne was in rare petty form while delivering his stinging rant, and said his divorce after 21 years of marriage is the universe's response to his behavior.

"Kevin you so busy trying to curse others you end up cursing yourself. Did you really think you could go around treating people the way you treat them and not suffer any consequence from the universe all these years? The sad part is you treat everybody like doo-doo, but the one person you treat like doo-doo that you should never treat like doo-doo is your soon-to-be ex-wife.

"Bro, you are nothing without her."

After also crowning Hunter Doo-Doo Brown, Charlamagne predicted all that he dished out to Wendy would come back via Sharina Hudson.

"It's only a matter of time before Sharina leaves you. Don't think she's staying around. Whatever you get from Wendy, Sharina is going to get a bunch of that from child support. Oh, wait for it. It's coming. The same thing you did to Wendy, Sharina's going to do to you with another man. Guaranteed."

Michael B. Jordan Would Like To Be Considered For B2K's Millennium Tour

Michael B. Jordan loves nostalgia. From the 90s and beyond, the actor has always shown love to those who helped create our favorite music memories. Now, Jordan is looking to throw his hat in the running for B2K's Millenium Tour.

The actor shared a hilarious video of himself, Terrance J and Ridiculousness' Steelo Brim jamming to Diddy's "I Need A Girl Remix" this week on Twitter with the caption, "Is there any more room on the Millennium Tour?" Fans of the 2000s hip-hip/R&B era are aware the jam was released in 2002 from Diddy's LP, We Invented The Remix.

We're sure B2K, Mario, Pretty Ricky, Lloyd and the rest of the family wouldn't mind having Killmonger on the road with them. Meanwhile, the guys have brought out several special guests on the Millennium Tour. So far, surprise performances have included Ashanti, Ja Rule, Bow Wow and B5.

Enjoy "I Need A Girl Part 2" below.
