Tough, badass black man. This is based on Stagger Lee Shelton, an African-American cab Driver and pimp. He was convicted of murdering Billy Lyons in 1895 in St. Louis. His crimes were immortalized in a song, that was often re-recorded and several versions refer to him as "Stagolee".
Samuel L. Jackson, is pretty stagolee in every role he plays.
