Our man Yeezy is catching it from all sides recently thanks to his latest foray into retro sensibility. Ironic? Maybe. But as much as homie thinks about what people think of him, trust that he's got a ready explanation for the dead animal he's rocking on the back of his neck.
And while some people are claiming he bit it from a dude named Tum Tum (seriously? Tum Tum?), and others may point out that tiny R&B sensation Bobby
Valflagrino Valentino is rocking one in his latest video, Kanye is really just the latest in a long line of mulleteers, those brave and hardy souls who proudly rocked a shag through good times and bad. (Yes, it's called a shag, white people, and it's been around for decades.)
We can't truthfully say we love the 80(8)s, but at least take a trip back in time before you start calling Kanye a Tum Tum biter. Uh, pause...
Hello? Is it a shape-up you're looking for?

Homie, just because we're all distracted by that Kuato on your face doesn't mean you can do shit like that, 1990 or no 1990.
Fun Fact: Jermajesty's dad here actually named his mullet: Jermutherfuckingkidding.
Even the original 40 Year Old Virgin needs birth control, right?

DR. DRE AND LONZO FROM THE WORLD CLASS WRECKIN' CRU
"Still rock my khakis with a cuff and a crease, still got love for hair grease, reppin 213..."
THEO HUXTABLE AND COCKROACH
Real talk, Denise rocked one too, but she was mad fuxtable.
Despite the fact that you've already seen this, it remains the Pepsi Kid's greatest moment.
This was his "Nick Ashford, but with many serious health problems" phase.
At 1995, perhaps the last mullet in captivity. This is the closest the African-American community has ever come to Billy Ray Cyrus. Well, until Miley goes to college.
Genius, yes. Owner of a mirror, no.
