Mystikal Says Cash Money Deal Is ‘Not Gonna Work’ A Month After Busta Rhymes Leaves The Label



And another one bites the dust.

Just a month after veteran rapper Busta Rhymes announced he would be parting ways with Cash Money Records, Mystikal revealed that he will follow suit.

He made the big reveal during an interview with Rap-Up before joining Ludacris onstage at the 2014 BMI R&B/Hip-Hop Awards. During the brief interview, the "Shake It Fast" rapper shared his discontent with his current deal.

"I don't really fit the mold of the situation I'm in," he explained. "I'm different, man. I have to be able to be the artist that I am. If I can't do that, then it's not gonna work for me."

Vibe notes that since inking a deal with Cash Money back in 2011, Mystikal's only release has been his single,"Original" featuring Birdman and Lil' Wayne. He has yet to release any other projects, which came as a disappointment to fans who have anticipated new music from the rapper for some time.

Mystikal was released from prison in 2010 after serving six years on sexual battery and extortion charges.

Aside from creative differences, Mystikal expressed there are no hard feelings between the music makers, namely Birdman and Wayne.

"That's all respect. That's family," he said. "We were family prior to this. And I thank them for the opportunity, but I don't wanna be a liability to them 'cause it's a waste of money, if nothing ever comes from it."

He also mentioned that he remains in close contact with Busta Rhymes and the two may be working on something.

As previously reported, Busta cited creative differences for his departure from the label.

"I was there for two years and the opportunity was a great opportunity at the time, because of the type of deal that was done," Busta explained. "For me, with this particular project and all of the sacrifice that went into it - recording the album for five years, I [lost] Chris Lighty making this album, I [lost] my father making this album - the s**t I was putting into this album, I'm not compromising my vision for it."

Stay tuned for a possible project from Mystikal and Busta Rhymes.
