Rapper Mystikal Fell Off The Stage 30 Seconds Into His Performance

He was in danger! (see what we did there?)

There has been a lot of talk on social media about the 50 greatest rappers of all time, and while a few names remain consistent on the different lists--JAY-Z, Nas, Biggie, Tupac--the order of certain names is what has caused the passionate debates. One name that is missing from all of the rankings is rapper Mystikal.

Mystikal released two albums at the height of his No Limit career with hits that included "Shake Ya Ass" and "Danger." Last week the 48-year-old New Orleans born artist found himself in a bit of peril when he reportedly fell off a stage in Tampa, Florida.

According to TMZ, Mystikal, real name Michael Lawrence Tyler, hit the stage at about 1 AM and a mere 30 seconds into his performance he took an unexpected tumble into the crowd. Footage shows security trying to help him back onto the stage, but he injured himself as a result of the fall.

An attendee said a spilled drink prior to Mystikal's performance caused the fall. Shortly after, Mystikal was said to have cut his show short and with the help of the crew was carried off the stage. It's unclear if he sought medical attention.

Mystikal's career took a sharp left in 2003 when he reportedly pled guilty to sexual battery and extortion serving seven years behind bars. In 2012, he spent three months incarcerated for domestic abuse, and then in 2017, he turned himself into authorities when a warrant was issued for his arrest for alleged rape and kidnapping. He was released on bail in February 2018.

Wale Attempts To Reason With His Significant Other In "Love...(Her Fault)" Music Video

Wale's next single from his critically-acclaimed album Wow... That's Crazy, "Love...(Her Fault)" has finally received the video treatment courtesy of Teyana Taylor's camera direction. The visual follows the roller-coaster nature of a relationship, from the happy times to those nights of sadness fueled by alcohol. The music video also features a cameo from comedian B. Simone.

In an interview with Billboard, Wale candidly discussed his thoughts on loss which in a way relates to the premise of the video. "I'm the master of self-sabotage, sometimes. I can f**k up a good thing. It's just one of them things that's just a part of being me," he said. "I'll f**k up a good thing. I'll f**k up a good relationship. I'll f**k up a good friendship. But, at the same time, I think there's responsibility to be had on all places. I don't really think it's a 'loss,' though. You just move on. I'm like a basketball player that got traded or just went to another team. I'm still an All-Star."

Watch the video up top, which ends on a "to be continued" note.
