From Wikipedia, the free Encyclopedia

Michael Tyler, also known as Mystikal (born September 22, 1970) is an American rapper. He is one of the artists on Master P's New Orleans-based No Limit label to achieve both critical and commercial success.

His debut album was Mystikal, released on the indie label Big Boy Records in 1995 (see 1995 in music). He signed to Jive Records to release Mind of Mystikal in 1996 (see 1996 in music). The album sold well, and he signed to Master P's No Limit Records for Unpredictable (see 1997 in music). The album sold well, and garnered him critical praise, though his real breakthrough was 2000's Let's Get Ready (see 2000 in music), led by the hit "Shake Ya Ass," and the only slightly-less-successful single "Danger (Been So Long)," which featured rising pop star Nivea. His hard hitting style served to differentiate himself from the rest of the No Limit roster, and Mystikal remains one of the most popular southern rap performers.

One of his most recent releases was the 2001 album Tarantula, which contained the single, "Bouncin' Back (Bumpin' Me Against The Wall)". Though it presented Mystikal's typical and unique flow style, the song also saw a blending of jazz and swing elements with hip-hop, similar in style to Us3 and possibly a first in gangsta rap.

On January 16, 2004 Mystikal was sentenced to six years in prison after being found guilty on several sex-related charges . He is reportedly eligible for parole in December 2005 and plans to return from prison with an immediate musical comeback.

In August 2005, Mystikal was charged with two counts of failing to file tax returns for 1998 and 1999; if convicted, he could serve up to a year in prison on each count.
