Rap-Up TV: Mystikal Wants Out of Cash Money Contract

Danger: There’s trouble brewing between Mystikal and Cash Money Records. Before sharing the stage with Ludacris at the 2014 BMI R&B/Hip-Hop Awards on Friday, the New Orleans rapper revealed that he is clashing with his label and wants a release.

Mystikal signed to Cash Money in November 2011, but hasn’t put out an album since 2001′s Tarantula. He blamed it on “politics,” telling Rap-Up TV, “I don’t really fit the mold of the situation I’m in.”

They haven’t seen eye-to-eye creatively. “I’m different, man. I have to be able to be the artist that I am. If I can’t do that, then it’s not gonna work for me,” said Mystikal.

Busta Rhymes recently split with Cash Money, and Mystikal hopes to join him. “Me and Busta been talking too, so don’t be shocked if you see me and Busta doing some things, real talk.”

While he released the single “Original” featuring Lil Wayne and Birdman in 2011, an album never transpired. “I’m sure it would’ve happened by now, but the situation—the stuff that I brought, it didn’t fit the mold.”

However, he didn’t have anything bad to say about the Cash Money crew including Birdman. “That’s all respect. That’s family. We were family prior to this. And I thank them for the opportunity, but I don’t wanna be a liability to them ’cause it’s a waste of money, if nothing ever comes from it.”
