Mystikal Gives His Insight On Prison
It’s no secret by now, everyone has heard that Mystikal is headed back to the slammer for another prison stint. Vice Magazine’s Noisey recently caught up with Mystikal to speak about the effects that prison had on his career.
In the interview Mystikal made it clear that while his prison sentence ultimately made him a better man in the end, it definitely stained his career. It held him back from making any music, but more importantly it kept him from seeing his family.
“It’s all bad, it’s all fu#ked up. Ain’t nothing cute about it no matter how you try to phrase it,” he said.
“When artists do that [kind of behavior] – I’m speaking about myself – we give the naysayers a chance to say, ‘See?! I told you,’ and it gives the rap game on the whole a black eye. It cost me my freedom, my career and being around my family, so we gotta pay attention to the moves we make. But I can say in spite of everything, I’m a better man for it.”
Mystikal has since been ordered back to prison for three months due to violation of his probation.
