Mystikal Headed Back To Jail


From NOLA.com

Louisiana rapper Mystikal, who was released from state prison in 2010 after serving a six-year term for sexual battery and extortion, will be returning to jail May 14 for three months. Mystikal's real name is Michael Tyler.

On Monday, state District Judge Tony Marabella added the extra time as a condition of the 41-year-old Tyler's five-year probation in the extortion case because he was arrested in February on a misdemeanor charge of domestic abuse battery.

Prosecutor Sue Bernie told The Advocate  Tyler stipulated to being in violation of his probation, which called for him to remain arrest- and conviction-free.

Tyler's attorney said Marabella ordered Tyler to spend another 90 days in jail but is giving him credit for the nine days he was detained after his Feb. 22 arrest.

You know that when a track opens with a quotable from Richard Kuklinkski, a/k/a "The Iceman," one of the most notorious and ruthless contract killers to which the world has ever seen, that the lyrics to follow are going to be nothing short of ruthless.  On "Say Hello To The Bad Guy," MTV's four time Direct Effect Battle Champ El Gant, and Smokey Lah, a/k/a Tek (of Smif-n-Wessun) debut the Deejay Iron and D-Purpose produced leak off their forthcoming collaborative album,Gibson & Glover, just in time for Friday the 13th.  "Say wassup to the bad buy, say goodbye, middle finger to the sky, live wicha hands high/ welcome to the wild side gutter, slapped by Gibson and the mother fu*#in' Glover."  Stay tuned for more leaks off Gibson & Glover, scheduled to drop this summer!

In promotion of Stretch Money’s forthcoming LP 25 Miles Per Hour, produced entirely by G-Unit affiliate beatsmith Nick Speed, the Detroit spitter drops the album’s first official single with “Let’s Get High.”  The track reveals Stretch’s adoration for the green goddess and invites others to come along for the ride over Speed’s hypnotic drums and flute loop. “Gold medalist for the Swisher Sweet specialist, set that bitch on fire so devilish/ makin’ sure I stay fried I tried to quit, but why quit when the doctors’ prescribing’ it…”  25 Miles Per Hour becomes available April 24th through Hot Lava Records.

Chuuwee’s Crown Me King will serve as the prelude to his long-awaited official solo-debut, Wild Style, which will be released on 5-29-2012 via Amalgam Digital. Whereas Chuuwee’s previous efforts were hybrid sub-genres he created such as “neo-boombap” (neo-soul meets boom-bap) or “hooliganarism” which Chuuwee describes as Treach of Naughty By Nature meets Wakka Flakka Flame, Wild Style can be summarized as pure 90s Hip Hop, where he is taking the classic elements of the golden era with the look, sound and the feel and then applying them to the present day.

Inspired by Gang Starr, A Tribe Called Quest, Big L, De La Soul with even hints of DMX, Wild Style promises to be Chuuwee’s break-out project, one that will showcase him as being a frontrunner lyricist from Hip-Hop’s new school; while also paying homage and respect to the great pioneers of the 1990’s. “Wild Style is the album that’s going to eradicate weak rap off the face of the map. It is the return of real Hip-Hop. It’s pure and it’s not me trying to re-make it. It’s not me telling you its 90s Hip-Hop; it is 90s Hip-Hop” says Chuuwee.

PR: Mickey Avalon - Second Leg of "Loaded" Tour in June

Courtesy 'Stache Media.

Mickey Avalon has announced a second leg of the "Loaded" tour which now extends into June with support coming from Millionaires.  The tour kicks off April 13th in Tempe, AZ and now totals 43 shows across the U.S. and Austrailia which is being presented by Jägermeister.  Celebrate the release of Mickey's new album, Loaded on April 24th with a special performance at the Key Club in Hollywood, CA.  All fans in attendance will receive a free copy of Loaded.  See below for a full list of tour dates.

Using his life experiences as fuel for his intense rhymes, Mickey Avalon is inviting listeners to step into his world with the release of his sophomore studio album, Loaded on April 24th via Suburban Noize Records.  You can pre-order Loaded on CD from Newbury Comics and receive a limited autographed booklet with your purchase.  Additionally, iTunes is offering an exclusive track with pre-orders, titled "When Avalon Comes."

Free after years of industry red tape, Mickey Avalon takes fans on a journey through the seedy streets of Hollywood. He immediately launches into the journey with "Rock Bottom" and continues alongside Scott Russo (Unwritten Law) on the album's lead single "Girlfriend." Avalon's diversity allows him to slip into sleek electro-synth beats on "I'm Hot" and playfully spit intricate rhymes over a classic hip-hop beat in the song "More Junk."
