Those who follow Freddie Gibbs on social media know the rapper loves a good laugh, always sharing raunchy viral videos and other memes that you will make you chuckle and cringe at the same time. But it seems he's not afraid to laugh at himself either.

Gibbs posted a snapshot from what seems to be a photoshoot with XXL showing him throwing his hands backward and elegantly taking a step like he's on a red carpet.

"2nd pic look like you got crossed up," Kenny Beats commented on the original photo.

It didn't take long for a handful of jokesters among his more than 811,000 Instagram followers to photoshop the graceful pose onto various scenes, including an Olympic figure skating competition (note the attention to detail with his hometown of Gary, Indiana), a still from the classic film Jaws and a soccer game (peep the goalkeeper.)

Not even the Jumpman logo on a pair of Air Jordan 11s was spared.

"Y’all n****z make one more of these I’m calling the police," Gibbs claimed while reposting one of the memes. However, the people appear to want more: Curren$y wrote, "I keep waiting for a skateboard one."

Off the strength of his well-received album Alfredo produced by The Alchemist, Gibbs has plenty to giggle about. In fact, he's feeling more confident than ever before at 38 years old, telling XXL, "I’m one of the greatest rappers of all-time."

Is Freddie speaking facts?
