Following his release from prison Louisiana rapper Mystikal was more than eager to get back into the studio for his next project.
“Everything is lined up for me, it’s amazing,” Mystikal explained to MTV News. “I didn’t throw pity parties for myself [while in prison]. I knew I was too blessed to be stressed and I knew I was gonna get through it. I’m still on Jive. I still have an obligation to fulfill with them guys. We gonna do it in a major way.”
The rapper has already secured a number of noteworthy appearances for his upcoming album. Lil Wayne and Busta Rhymes will both be featured on the album and producer’s Pharrell Williams and Mannie Fresh are both lending their talents for the project.
“I just talked to him the other day,” said Mystikal, speaking on Pharrell. “He says he got an armored-tank beat for me. I can’t wait to hear what that sounds like.”
Aside from working on his upcoming album Mystikal has performed at a number of events including VH1’s Hip Hop Honors, the Zulu Ball, and most recently the Essence Music Festival.
Mystikal was released from prison earlier this year after serving six years for a sexual battery and extortion charge. He has yet to speak on a release date or a name for his upcoming album.
