Mystikal Says Cash Money Deal Was In The Works For A While

During his interview with Vibe Magazine Mystikal touched on signing to Cash Money and surrounding himself with people he trusts.

Quite a number of people were taken aback this week when it was announced that former No Limit rapper Mystikal had signed a deal with Cash Money Records. But according to Mystikal his deal with Cash Money had been in the works for quite some time even well before his release from prison.

“It was actually materializing for a while now,” Mystikal revealed to Vibe Magazine. “The conversation started when I was going through my incarceration. And those conversations continued once I came home. The right things happened and the right kind of deal was made. What I got from Wayne was don’t be to astounded by what you are seeing because this is nothing. Let’s go make history. That’s a young dude telling me that. Coming from him and given the big things he’s doing right now, that was right on for me.”

During his interview Mystikal seemed pretty confident with his potential for success now that he’s signed to Cash Money.

“Even Ray Charles could see what was happening over at Cash Money. The minute I went over there and stepped my foot in the studio I knew it was real. I never thought I would go from No Limit to Cash Money. It was like God was leading me. Imagine what I can do over here,” said Mystikal.

The rapper also spoke on lessons learned while in prison and revealed that he plans on keeping close watch when it comes to the people surrounding him.

“The number one thing that I learned is you have to watch your friends,” Mystikal explained. “Watch your surroundings and watch the people that you cry out to for help. Because by the time they come your situation will become far worse. I have to be really careful who I have around me.”

      If you wanna be like that then you shouldnt listen to yourself cause masturbation is a sin according to the bible and that would make you a sex offender as well.

      But you'll probably bump things like Rick Ross who was a Corrections Officer who lied and took the identity of an infamous drug lord, then sold the image of a cocaine kingpin back to us. Dive into any Artits background and you may find out some foul shit.

      Mystikal is not gonna put out a classic album. Where have you been? His music is too one sided to be considered classic material. Not gonna happen

    I'm not surprise. The label is just buying artists like it ain't ish. Sad to see the they are artist who came out before Wayne ends up with him on the label.

      Seeing as how Mannie almost never used samples, he is entitled to 50% writers credit for his original compositions, which make up Cash Money's entire catalog from 1995-2002. Tha would entitle him to 25% of everything the label made off album sales, and video. Mannie Fresh has already acknowledged that the Williams Brothers could never afford to pay him what they actually owe him. All he wanted from them was an apology for fucking him over so royally, which they never gave. If they paid Mannie Fresh the industry standard writer's agreement, they would owe him something like a quarter of a billion dollars. Apparently, he wrote, composed, and arranged the label's entire catalog as "works for hire". Meaning Baby and Slim would pay him like $20,000 a track, and he just rolled with that. Damn shame.
