Rapper Mystikal released from prison

New Orleans rapper Mystikal was released from prison Thursday after serving a six-year prison sentence for sexual assault and battery.  Born Michael Lawrence Tyler, the rapper was accused of forcing his hair stylist (who he believed stole $80,000 in checks from him) to perform sexual acts while his two bodyguards videotaped it.
Known for chart-topping hits in 2000 and 2001 such as “Shake It Fast” and “Danger (Been So Long),” Mystikal conducted a phone interview with New Orleans’ radio station Q93 FM soon after his release.
“I’m back! I’m still tryin’ to feel this reality. It still almost feels like a dream,” he said. “Six years off the scene, for most rappers it’d be over with. Man, it’s gon’ be the beginning for me and I’m finna get my reparations.”
