The Undertaker, burying his hairdresser for stealing money. Or maybe not.
If we accept that, though, then we also make the argument that Mark William Calaway (aka WWF Wrestler the Undertaker) never himself actually performed a piledriver on someone and buried them in a coffin. But of course he did. And it was cool as hell.

For me, personally, I've never been the guy chanting how we need to castrate all sex offenders, but I am one of those annoying guys who try to find reasons behind peoples' bad behaviors. "Making excuses for people," is what pro-castration advocates would say, but I firmly believe in trying to help people - even sex offenders, as I occasionally attempted to do back while working for the government on a program to serve homeless veterans.

Which reminds me, did I mention that Mystikal is a combat veteran, having served in the Iraq war? What about that time that he found his older sister, stabbed and strangled to death? Point is, life hasn't been too easy for the guy. Does that give him the right to rape someone? No, of course not. But maybe it provides an explanation as to why someone could have such terrible decision-making skills. And being a rich and famous rapper might've messed with his head a bit.

The truly fascinating thing about all of this is that Mystikal is still an active rap artist, having landed a deal with Cash Money Records. A sex crime hasn't rendered him unmarketable and in fact, other artists still want to work with him. His latest record (which will honestly probably kick ass, judging by the song "Hit Me") boasts guest stars like Rick Ross, Drake, Lil Wayne, and Busta Rhymes. Even New Orleans funk outfit Galactic (who have toured with bands like The String Cheese Incident, Live, and Counting Crows) collaborated with Mystikal on the song "Move Fast" as recently as 2012.

Rick Ross isn't his name, he stole it from FReeway Ricky Ross, the real CIA coke dealer, who learned the law in prison and got out and is now suing this fatass for stealing his identity, google it.

Just lost respect for Rick Ross. This piece of shit does not deserve the success he has.

What the fuck is going on?

Rape culture. 

A whole system in which women are silenced by their abusers and rape (EVEN WHEN THE GUY IS CONVICTED) is still called into question. Do you realize that you're just feeding into it with this he said/she said speculation. The guy was convicted of sexual battery with videotaped evidence and you're basically suggesting that it was all a setup. 

It takes a tremendous amount of strength as a survivor of sexual assault to deal with the criminal justice system. Thanks to rape culture, a lot of folks suggest that rape is only real if it's convicted (an exceedingly small number of cases). And you basically just took the last thing that this woman had and turned it on its head because the boys' club that makes their careers objectifying women didn't boot him.

Fuck you buddy.

Gives a new meaning to "Shake your ass, but watch your step," I suppose. Also, you probably shouldn't show him what you're working with. Because he will rape it.

Great article, especially considering finding a way to put the Undertaker in there. If the whole event was a case of him just being "Mystikal", that makes you wonder if that kind of character is someone you want in the public eye at all...

Actually, I wanted to amend that to say that it's very valuable to look at a person's history, and I don't doubt that the dude had a lot of fucked up shit going on. But we also have to look at ourselves and see how our culture helps to enable abusers.

Apologies for the "fuck you". Your last few paragraphs just happened to undo the entire point (which was pretty reasonable) of the first two pages and that hurts a lot.

@Alissa_Nelson No need to apologize. I certainly didn't intend to come across that way. The suggestion that the tape was a staged incident was meant to be outlandish. I couldve (and shouldve) chosen a more obvious and ridiculous scenario, perhaps.

The article is meant to draw attention to the fact that Mystikal has gotten in trouble for doing some pretty awful things, yet continues to receive work. The question is "why?"

@Pete_McGillicutty   You realize it wasn't ME that made a hairdresser blow 3 dudes at gun point, right?
