After serving a six-year prison term for sexual battery and extortion, New Orleans rapper Mystikal, best known for hits like "Shake Ya Ass" and "Danger (Been So Long)," was released from jail last week.
"My feet back on the ground. Man it's been a long time," Mystikal told jock Wild Wayne from New Orleans' Q93 radio station. "I'm back. I'm still trying to feel this reality. It feels like a dream. Watch how I'm going to shake this world up now. I want reparation!"
Mystikal, born Michael Tyler, was sentenced to six years in prison after being arrested along with two of his bodyguards for threatening to turn his former hairstylist in to police for cashing $80,000 worth of unauthorized checks from his bank account. The stylist said she was forced to have sex with all three men in exchange for their silence. As part of the plea bargain, all three pleaded guilty. Mystikal has five years of probation upon his release and has to be registered as a sex offender in Louisiana.
