New Orleans Rapper Mystikal Released From Prison After 6 Years

Mystikal

New Orleans rapper Mystikal was released from prison on Thursday (Jan. 14) after serving a six-year sentence on sexual assault and battery charges. The artist, born Michael Lawrence Tyler, topped the charts in 2000 and 2001 with his hits “Shake Ya Ass” and “Danger (Been So Long).”

“I’m back! I’m still tryin’ to feel this reality. It still almost feels like a dream,” he told his hometown radio station Q93 FM. “Six years off the scene, for most rappers it’d be over with. Man, it’s gon’ be the beginning for me and I’m finna get my reparations.”

He discussed receiving a visit from Shaquille O’Neal, not being able to witness Hurricane Katrina and President Obama’s election, and the first thing he plans to do when he gets home. We’ll probably be hearing more from him soon.

    Mystical is bouncin back!!!! I think he could make a big comeback i really do. From the way Mystical sounded in this interview u can tell hes ready. Dude been writing for 6 years so just imagine how much lyrics and ideas he has. I hope he works with pharrell and neptunes again they had that undeniable chemistry all his biggest hits were with the neptunes. Im curious to hear how his new material will sound. Welcome back mystical!!!

    Big shout out to Mystikal, I like how he answered that question about Rappers being targeted. I’m like, if you aren’t breaking the law then you don’t have anything to worry about. Stop doing dumb ILLEGAL sh*t and they can’t catch you on anything. Mystikal did his bid, now he deserves another chance and hopefully he gets it and makes the most of it!

    I use to love him, got both his albums on cd until I heard about the charges. I thought it was rape?

    Yeah, Mystikal made a bad decision…He’s human, just like the rest of you. Not one of you made reference to the embezzler that perpetuated the situation. He should have turned her in, but he didn’t. He has to live with that. Hopefully, he can get on with his life.

    Welcome back…Get that new release out ASAP!
