Mystikal Released from Jail

Mystikal is a free man once again. After serving 81 days behind bars for violating his probation, the New Orleans rapper has returned to the free world.

According to TMZ, the 41-year-old MC, born Michael Tyler, was released from the East Baton Rouge Parish Jail in Louisiana on Friday, where he had been incarcerated since May 14.

Mystikal had been ordered to serve 90 days in jail after being arrested for domestic abuse, which violated his probation from a previous sexual battery and extortion conviction.

“It was an unfortunate incident between two people who have cared a lot about each other for 10 years,” said Roy Maughan Jr., Mystikal’s attorney.

Now that he’s back, he plans to continue recording his Cash Money debut Original. The project, his first since 2001’s Tarantula, is expected to feature collaborations with Busta Rhymes and Rick Ross.
