SHAKE IT FAST: Have you heard that rap star Mystikal? He's a singer from New Orleans who I saw on MTV this week, and seems to scream rather than sing. A video for his most famous song "Shake It Fast" (also known as "Shake Your A#@"), is a spoof of the Kubrick soft core film "Eyes Wide Shut", which itself was merely a vehicle for Tom Cruise to take off his clothes. The lyrics to his songs are totally degrading to both women, and to Mystikal for singing about such profanities. I was going to post a link to his song lyrics on this site, but they are so base and vile, that I thought better of it. While there are "clean" versions of his songs, the ideas presented in them remain the same. If you want to know what is passing for entertainment on Top-40 radio, you may want to check out his songs. This is not for the faint-hearted or those who have any sense of moral absolutes, of which Mystikal lacks.
