Mystikal Discusses His First Album in 12 Years


It’s been a while since you we have heard new music from Mystikal. In a interview with Rolling Stone, the Louisana rapper is preparing to release his YMCMB debut, Original, due out in June.

Mystikal was incarcerated for six years at Louisiana’s Elayn Hunt Correctional Center. Since his release, he has been focused on taking the crown for Louisiana rap for his first album in nearly 12 years.

“It’s really the backpack kids that you’ve got to get,” he said. “That little motherfucker that jumped over my head with the skateboard and the Beats headphones playing Lil Wayne. To win, you’ve got to get him.”

The rapper has been working on Original since 2010, recording the album between Baton Rouge and Miami. The album is set to feature guest appearances from Lil Wayne, Rick Ross, Future, Busta Rhymes and more.
