Everyone knows that the best self-portraits are taken the the bathroom, using a mirror, with your cell phone camera. If this wasn't the best way to take your pic, then why does everyone do it? Awww hell.
Real gangsta-ass dudes need to have a gun in their photo and that's on the real. Even harder is to aim the thing at the camera so that everyone is looking down the barrel, like you're just about to die by this crazy dude's hand.
But the hardest pose is to do that self-portrait in the bathroom, with a mirror, and aiming the gun at the camera. That is top notch gangsta-ass photography.
