Mystikal is the newest member of the Cash Money family. Just weeks after welcoming Busta Rhymes, YMCMB has added another veteran rapper to its star-studded lineup.
Cash Money Records CEO and founder Birdman signed the New Orleans native to the label in November, with his first album for Cash Money due next spring.
“It is an honor to get the opportunity to work with Mystikal, as we have a long history together,” said Birdman. “He is a great artist and his talent, combined with our hard work and strong team, is going to result in some of the best music of his career. We are expecting great work from Mystikal. Slim and I already have him in the studio working on his first album for Cash Money.”
Mystikal’s first single for Cash Money, entitled “Original,” features Lil Wayne and Baby. The club banger will debut today on New York radio station Hot 97.
“It has been a truly long time since I have felt like a rapper and with this signing, and partnership, Birdman and Slim have given me my life as a rapper back,” stated Mystikal, who topped the charts with his 2000 hit “Shake Ya Ass.” “I am ready to go. I am going to put my red Superman drawers, cape and boots on and go! This is a huge moment for me and I am truly excited to be with Cash Money Records.”
