Mystikal: “I Am Ashamed…”
Mystikal had been in prison for 6 years after facing charges for extortion and sexual battery. Yet he managed to come out the other side and even signed a deal with Birdman’s Cash Money label. This gave the fans hope that the rapper may redeem himself and bring us some new music soon, as his last major record was 'Danger (Been So Long)' which was released in 2001...
Unfortunately, the rapper is already heading back to jail. After violating his probation, Mystikal will be returning to jail for 81 days. Speaking to Billboard, he admitted: "Disappointed isn't the word for it – ashamed. It's hard to show up. If I stole your money and I gotta come face you again and you ask me about the money, it's gonna be hard for me to face you in the eye. So the proof is in the pudding.
"My 81 days. Everywhere I went, it was keeping me in check, and it's a fight. I can tell myself all kinds of things, I can sit there and mope, or I can get out and thank those fans the way I'm supposed to, the way they deserve to be thanked. So of course I am."
Mystikal will be heading to jail for what we hope is the last time on May 14.
