Former No Limit Soldier has officially enlisted with the Cash Money army. 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, 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,” Birdman stated.
“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.” stated by Mystikal
Birdman and Mystikal aren’t wasting any time with their new allegiance. 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.
Mystikal’s signing comes on the heels of Birdman and his brother Slim signing Busta Rhymes last month
