Okay, to answer the obvious question a'comin' "why is Q-tip wearing a burn mask?" I have two different explanations. The first comes from a user here on YouTube, OfficialQTIP:

"We here at the OfficialQTIP would just like to make you aware that the real reason for qtip wearing the mask in the HOT SEX video was QTIP didn't want to do a video for the song and the film's studio (PARAMOUNT PICTURES) and JIVE RECORDS consented the groups availability against the groups wishes. This had nothing to do with any scuffle. we hope that you could find it in your time that you could adjust the description that you offer as im sure you prefer fact to rumor. Thanks for your support we appreciate it!"

The other story is one that's circulated around the web for a long time: "He was beat up by Teddy Riley and crew over the line "strictly hardcore tracks, not a new jack swing" in the song "We Got the Jazz." Teddy Riley is of course one of the pioneers of New Jack Swing. It wasn't even 'Tip's line, but Phife's. The battle scars couldn't be covered by makeup, hence the mask."
