Mystikal Officially Joins Cash Money Records

A one-time No Limit Soldier has officially enlisted with the Cash Money army. CM labelhead Birdman announced today (December 13) the latest acquisition of the YMCMB family: fellow New Orleans legend Mystikal.

“It is an honor to get the opportunity to work with Mystikal, as we have a long history together,” Birdman said in a statement. “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,” Mystikal, who has been signed to the label since last month, added in release to the press. “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.”

Birdman and Mystikal aren’t wasting any time with their new allegiance. The two are putting out “Original,” Mystikal’s first single, later on this evening via Funk Master Flex’s Hot 97 radio show. According to their reps, Birdman and Mystikal have been sequestered in Miami’s Hit factory recording a gaggle of records, including “Original.” Besides The #1 Stunnna, the track features Lil Wayne. Mystikal’s Cash Money debut is due this Spring.

Ironically, prior to signing his new deal, Mystikal had been hard at work on several records that were produced by former Cash Money staple, Mannie Fresh. Just this past September, the 41-year-old MC told MTV News he was working on “rebranding” himself and creating new hits with Fresh.

“We been working,” Mystikal said of his Fresh collaborations. “Last couple of weeks, we been coming with some monsters in that studio. I still gotta give [the fans] that vintage me, because that’s what I am, but I found a way to kinda bring it up to speed and still be contemporary.”

Mystikal’s signing comes on the heels of Birdman and his brother Slim signing Busta Rhymes last month.
