Mystikal is heading back to jail. The rapper, whose real name is Michael Tyler, violated his parole and will go back behind bars for 90-days
The Huffington Post reports that Mystikal served six years in Louisiana prison for sexual battery and extortion. He was released in 2010.
After his release, Mystikal said:
“It was tough. I took it in stride,” he said of his situation. “I’m back. It almost feels like a dream. For a while, it felt like, I was gone so long.”
Mystikal was arrested in February on a misdemeanor charge of domestic abuse. State District Judge Tony Marabella sentenced to rapper to 90-days in prison for violating his parole. Marabella did give the rapper credit for the 9-days he was detained after his arrest so Mystikal will actually only be spending another 81-days in jail.
MTV reports that the rapper signed a deal with Cash Money records in December to work on his sixth studio album, Original. The New Orleans rapper has already released a video for the album’s lead single, but he’ll have to wait a few months before putting the finishing touches on the record. Mystikal told MTV news:
“I’m telling you, this album is gonna be so well worth the wait, believe that… Busta [Rhymes] was one of the first artists I worked with when I first came home. Busta came out there, came all the way to Baton Rouge. I’m talking about we got it in.”
