Mystikal Released From Prison After 6 Years

“Been so long, he’s been gone…” New Orleans rapper Mystikal was released from prison yesterday (January 14) according to BET News, after serving six years behind bars for sexual battery.

The former No Limit star—born Michael Tyler—called into his hometown radio station, Q93, on Thursday to speak on his newfound freedom. “It was tough,” he said of his time spent in jail. “I took it in stride. I’m back. It almost feels like a dream. For a while, it felt like, I was gone so long.”

The “Shake it Fast” hitmaker also took time to assure his fans that he wrote plenty of new material while on lock-down.

Mystikal was charged with forcing his former hair stylist to perform oral sex on him and two of his associates back in July of 2002. He copped to the crime after video footage of the incident was found. —Elan Mancini
