Friend Zone god Musiq Soulchild decided he was tired of chicks saying he was just a friend and figured he'd try to get their attention another way: by being a rapper. His rap alter ego is the Husel. The jury is still out on the meaning of the name. Is there a deeper meaning? Is the rap game "the hustle?" What we do know is Musiq isn't the first artist to do something for attention, money, etc. LL Cool J offered to trade in his jewelry for slavery chains, Lil Wayne was once a "rock star," Ma$e used to be a preacher, and Juelz Santana wants you to wake up now. Check out when good artists do unfortunate things for your enjoyment.
