Cash Money's Mystikal Prepping First Album In 12 Years


(AllHipHop News) After 12 years of being on the sidelines in the rap game former No Limit solider Mystikal is ready to get back on the field.

Out of jail and on a new label, the New Orleans emcee- who is best known for the hits “The Man Right Chea,” “Danger,” “Shake Ya Ass” and “Make ‘Em Say Uhh!” is currently recording his first album in 12 years.

Rolling Stone is reporting that Mystikal has been working on his new LP with long-time producing partner KLC of Beats by The Pound since 2010.

The album is titled Original, and it will feature guest appearances by Lil Wayne, Rick Ross, Future, Busta Rhymes, and others.

This will be Mystikal’s first studio album he has released since signing with Cash Money Records in 2011.

He dropped the single “Original” featuring Birdman and Lil Wayne in 2012.

As an added bonus, Mystikal and KLC decided to incorporate the authentic NOLA sound into his latest songs by recording tracks with the New Orleans jazz/rap hybrid performer Troy “Trombone Shorty” Andrews and the award-winning Stooges Brass Band.

Mystikal is also planning to go on tour with the full ensemble this year.

When asked about choosing to use live instrumentation on his new album Mystikal told Rolling Stone, “You eat a TV dinner, five minutes, you are going to shit it back out. A home-cooked meal, it’s going to stick to you. And that’s the difference between real instruments and shit just playing out the keyboard.”

Part of Mystikal’s 12-year hiatus was the result of having to serve a six-year prison sentence stemming from a 2003 sexual battery and extortion case.

After originally stating the sexual encounter between he and his former hairstylist was consensual, Mystikal eventually pled guilty to the charges when police found a videotape of the encounter.

Prior to his conviction, Mystikal released his last album Tarantula in 2001.

His discography also includes the certified platinum Ghetto Fabulous and the 2-million selling, Billboard #1 Let’s Get Ready. Original will be Mystikal’s 5th official studio album.

Check out the video for Mystikal’s “Original” featuring Birdman and Lil Wayne.

    • Lolrax

      Nah it was some BS, she was working as his assistant and stole a bunch of money from him and he said “either I call the cops or have sex with me” and she chose sex, then turned around and charged him with rape. The dude made a mistake but it wasn’t like that.

  • therealest1

    Shouldn’t his album be titled Registered Sex Offender? Perhaps this clown can be the new New Orleans Pelicans mascot or mascot sidekick, The Rapist. Hell, the former owner, George Shinn was accused of sexual assault when they used to be in Charlotte. Something in common I guess.

  • Mike Swiff
