Mystikal is now officially a member of Cash Money Records after inking a deal with Birdman and Slim.
The New Orleans rapper joins a crowded list of artists at YMCMB that includes Busta Rhymes, Drake, Nicki Minaj, Cory Gunz, Lil Twist, Lil Wayne, Shanell, Bow Wow, Kevin Rudolf and Jay Sean.
“It is an honor to get the opportunity to work with Mystikal, as we have a long history together,” said Birdman. “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 debut album with his new label isn't due until next spring, but he will be dropping a new single tonight titled "Original" on Hot 97's Funkmaster Flex show.
“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,” stated Mystikal. “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.”
