Mystikal Reflects On Six-Year Prison Sentence

With another three months in prison on the horizon, Mystikal reflects on his previous six-year sentence.

Vice Magazine's Noisey recently caught up with Cash Money rapper Mystikal to speak on his career after prison. With Kool A.D. of Das Racist conducting the interview, Mystikal reflected on his six years in jail for sexual battery and extortion.

Mystikal explained that while his prison sentence ultimately made him a better man in the end, it irrevocably hurt his career. Not only did it prevent him from making music, but it also kept him from seeing his family and also marred the public image of Hip Hop in general.

"It's all bad, it's all fucked up. Ain't nothing cute about it no matter how you try to phrase it," he said. "When artists do that [kind of behavior] - I'm speaking about myself - we give the naysayers a chance to say, 'See?! I told you,' and it gives the rap game on the whole a black eye. It cost me my freedom, my career and being around my family, so we gotta pay attention to the moves we make. But I can say in spite of everything, I'm a better man for it."

Mystikal was recently ordered back to prison for three months after violating the terms of his probation.

Check out the full interview below.

    Mystikal just another example of how going to jail make you worse than before you every do, oh well lock up back from where you just came from. Niggas like more ass hole that pussy hole anyway

    I don't know the man or his situation. The information available on him paints an ugly picture but we need to think more critically. There is more than one angle of view to gain a complete understanding; are you just a good or bad person or are you a little of both? I am not defending him or whomever he is accused of misusing - again I don't know his situation. I do know time and time again we (Black men) are negatively depicted and stereotyped. I don't trust those who all too willingly provide us with these images. Real talk: He is not posing with body parts of people he killed. He is not dropping bombs and killing men women and children. He is not using military and chemical warfare to gain control over population and natural resources. So a little perspective is needed here not simple minded drivel produced by colonized minds. - Lord and Self Master

    • dmfslimm

      cry me a motherfucking river.

    • Mr Flamboyant

      What type of logic is THAT, nigga? Just cause we don't know the woman (well in this nigga's case WOMEN) means that we can't state the obvious of how this dude is an idiot on top of a woman beater/rapist? That's f'ed up on so many levels. I swear... a fool isn't known until the mouth is open and words come out.

  • C-los

    I bet in prison he had to "shake that ass" and ", "watch himself"

  • Anonymous

    dude is wack as hell n will prolly be back in jail next month

  • JIK12

    I just don't get it DX? Why do you support Mystikal. Probably it's cool to write about a guy who raped a woman?????

  • dmfslimm

    whoever said he was a woman beater? everytime a story on mystikal is posted the same motherfucker come on here talbout "dont support woman beaters and rapist". it was "nigga shit" on his part and the womans part. gotdamn, and he did his time plus his time he got added on for income tax. he got kids and he need to work and he still got the flow, so hell yeah imma support him. the cashmoney move is questionable but im still riding with mike. sit your ass down talking down on a down south legend.

    • Mr Flamboyant

      LOL at down south legend... Nigga since WHEN? Niggas doesn't even have a classic album or a classic song or a classic verse. And he's a legend? Yeah ok. LOL

    • cASH mONEY kILLAZ

      @ dmfslimm: Should we care for Mystikal? A legend lol he never made a classic!!!! He has kids and need work? What about the women he raped and did beat. Those women also have kids and need money. What about the pain they suffered getting raped and beaten? Imagine your sister would be the one who was raped? Did you then feel the sameway. Oh well he did his time so its cool DONT SUPPORT RAP BY A WOMAN BEATER AND RAPIST!

    I love how twisted things are, we look down on artist who live clean lives if there music is dark or controversial, but this guy gets to rape & beat women while signed to the biggest Pop rap label in the buisness who have an audience of teenage girls to whom they sell the majority of their product. We're living in Rome before the fall, lol

  • mgruppe.com

    MYSTIKAL FUCKED UP BAD. HE ANALYSED THE SITUATION CORRECT. THIS IDIOT WAS VERY POPULAR AND HE REPRESENTED A GROWING MOVEMENT IN THE SOUTH - NOW HE IS JUST A BAD EXAMPLE TO POINT YOUR FINGER AT.

  • cASH mONEY kILLAZ

    Mystikal says: "But I can say in spite of everything, I'm a better man for it." So and after this you beat a woman. A real man doesnt beat up a woman or rape a woman. May you burn in hell with your horrible flow and voice. DONT SUPPORT MUSIC BY RAPIST AND WOMANBEATERS

    • Knuckles

      I don't see how hard it is to see the irony of that. DX needs to stop giving dude shine. It's damn disgusting and idiotic now.

  • me

    enough with these interviews man i need to here more fire

  • a$$hole

    this guy is a nonce and should have been castrated...

  • dentaldamboy

    What about Action Bronson? He wrote to Mystikal every week and Mystikal doesn't give him any shootouts? Thats fucked up shit!

  • Mr Flamboyant

    Yeah and it was so damn bad that you had to beat on another chick to go back for three months. Someone stop putting up these interviews from this nigga. Hope he gets his act together and makes shitty music for a shitty label and leave it at that.

    • Anonymous

      Mr Flamboyant is clearly an idiot.

    • Mr Flamboyant

      Typical response from a person who has lack of knowledge, perspective, and an emotional ass fool. Why would I or anyone else cry about this nigga or anything else? Why would I or anyone else worry? His life needs not to be reported or interviews done or time of day given. He sat in a cell for 6, gets out, obviously hasn't learned a damn thing, does some more f'ed up stuff to another woman, goes back in for 3 months. For you to get upset about it means you are a ho. And "broke ass sorry nigga"? Come on, nigga. You just let the whole world know that you're a fool that simple. You vagina ass nigga. If you're a fan of dude and that shitty label he's dick riding in order to get a lil fame and change, then cool. But at no time do you ever pop off with some nonsense at anyone who speaks the obvious truth about whom you're a fan. You lil nondescript nigga. Go get some education or knowledge of self and stop running around here showing the world how stupid you are. Lil bitch ass nigga.

    • liquidv

      stop crying you dumbass bitch. you worry about you. let mystikal do him. u broke ass sorry nigga.

    It's a damn shame he didn't just call the police on the chick who stole from him.
