Mystikal Signs To Cash Money Records

Former New Orleans rivals are now one as Mystikal has officially joined the YMCMB family.

Mystikal signed to Cash Money in November and his first album since returning home prison is scheduled to drop in the Spring of 2012.

Birdman spoke of the signing stating,

“It is an honor to get the opportunity to work with Mystikal, as we have a long history together. He is a great artist and his talent, combined with our hard work and strong team, is going to result in some of the best music of his career. We are expecting great work from Mystikal. Slim and I already have him in the studio working on his first album for Cash Money”.

Mystikal’s first single for Cash Money, is the club banger “Original” featuring Lil Wayne and Birdman, will premiere on December 13, 2011 on The Funkmaster Flex show on Hot 97 FM. The track, which was recorded in Hit Factory in Miami, is expected to appear on Mystikal’s forthcoming album for Cash Money Records.

Mystikal also spoke of the union adding,

“It has been a truly long time since I have felt like a rapper and with this signing, and partnership, Birdman and Slim have given me my life as a rapper back. I am ready to go. I am going to put my red Superman drawers, cape and boots on and go! This is a huge moment for me and I am truly excited to be with Cash Money Records.”

Since his release Mystikal has been in the lab with Mannie Fresh so maybe Mannie may be heading back to the house he helped build in the near future as well.
