Rowdy Rapper Fights For Fame

LOS ANGELES (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – Rapper Mams Taylor is fighting his way to fame.

This past February, Taylor made headlines when he punched actor Jesse Metcalfe in the face after Metcalfe harassed Taylor’s girlfriend, Hustle & Flow actress Taryn Manning.

While Taylor doesn’t regret the publicized punch, he wants his music – a blend of hip hop and rock – to sing for itself.

Taylor says, “Where I’m from, if you call my girlfriend a bch, it’s like, ‘Okay, let’s knuckle up.’ But I want my music to be the basis of my character.”

Despite the strength of his songs, Taylor’s keeping his fighting gloves on to become a hit in the music world.

On Saturday (May 31), Taylor will perform a song while walking James Thompson – a professional mixed martial arts fighter – down the aisle toward the ring, where Thompson will take on MMA master Kimbo Slice.

But Taylor’s not just a brawler, he’s also a theatrically trained actor who dreams of starring in a stage version of One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest.

Taylor’s debut video for L.A. Girls is up now on myspace.com/mamstaylor.
