Mystikal is a man with a back up plan. Now that's he's out of jail, he's decided to give this music thing another go, but if it doesn't work out, there's another profession in his future.
The Louisiana native told TMZ that in his quest to maintain a steady cash flow, he has decided to transition into the adult film industry, to make ends meet. If given the opportunity, he'd like a chance with dirty flick star Pinky. 'She's a bad b-tch,' he raved. 'I would take her down in a second.'
Choosing to work in said arena allows Mystikal to follow in the footsteps of Snoop Dogg, and most recently Tyga, who is not only directing an adult film, but launched an accompanying website.
Ironically s-x movies should be the last thing Mystikal is interested in, given his criminal record. The 42-year-old served six years in prison for s-xual battery, stemming from an incident with a hairstylist in which he forced her to perform a s-x act.
After his long prison bid, Mystikal went back to jail stemming from a domestic abuse case. He repented for his actions stating that he was 'ashamed.'
No word yet on when his album will drop.
The 1999 club shooting that ended with Shyne being sent to jail for 10-year bid, also spared the precious life of Jennifer Lopez-so says the former Bad Boy rapper.
Speaking to Charlotte's WGIV 103.3, the 33-year-old explained that had things happened differently, Lopez wouldn't be here. 'I was thugging and bugging that night, ya dig? I was actually the best behaved because I don't drink and I don't smoke,' he said. 'I'm from the streets so when it's time for my hammer to go off... somebody was getting ready to pop ol' boy's head off... It might not have been no Jennifer Lopez movies or none of that, if I didn't pull my ratchet and squeeze off.'
Humble man that he is, Shyne made it clear that Lopez wasn't the only person he saved. 'I saved all of our lives cuz them kids from Brooklyn don't play,' he explained, of the discrepancy with club goers that led up to the violent outbreak.
Even with his well-publicized issues with Diddy, who was seen as sacrificing his former artist's freedom in order to ensure his own, more than a decade later Shyne has no problem owning up to his faults. 'I squeezed off that's my responsibility. No way, no how do I ever say what he did or he didn't do, I aint see him do nothing, as far as I know he didn't do nothing. That's not my responsibility, my responsibility is what I did.
"But you can't be my man and we in a situation together and you gon' call a witness to testify against me so you could get out the situation.'
Diddy has been ordered to pay $850,000 of his own money to the victims hurt in the New Years Eve altercation. Meanwhile Shyne is getting back to the music, revealing both his Gangland mixtape cover art, and plans to release a new album next year.
