    What does "break yourself" mean?


    Basically the title speaks for itself. For example, I heard this phrase a lot in "Don't be a menace to South Central..." (Loc Dog draws a gun and yells "break yourself" etc.) I'm interested in meaning, examples and ways to use. Doesn't matter if it's rude or not.
