T.I. is going full force with his Hustle Gang clique, who return with a new song called “Here I Go.” Affiliates Young Dro, Spodee, and Shad Da God join The Kang on the track along side YMCMB recruit Mystikal.
FKi created the beat, sort of, because it’s sonically a slowed down version of Mystikal’s No Limit classic, also titled “Here I Go.” Nevertheless, the six MCs take their turn spitting gritty, street rhymes on the cut.
Considering that the New Orleans native was the originator of the jam, it was only right that he contributed the best verse. That isn’t to say the T.I.P. and co. didn’t do their thing as well.
“Here I Go” is the follow up to “Freeze Me,” both of which will appear on a forthcoming mixtape titled G.D.O.D.: The Introduction, arriving May 7. Hear the new record from the collective below.

Just in time for tonight’s NBA All-Star Saturday Night festivities, Birdman randomly released a mixtape titled Rich Gang All-Stars. Don’t get too excited, because the project is a compilation of recent YMCMB efforts, which include Drake’s “Started From the Bottom,” the Future’s Lil Wayne-assisted track “Karate Chop,” and more. A few exclusive cuts are scattered throughout the tape, including this loosie featuring Future, Tyga, Meek Mill and Mystikal.
Titled “Fly Rich,” the track sounds how you would imagine it to, featuring Future Vandross croons on a chorus backed by verses from. The posse cut was produced by S-X, who laced the track with drums and heavy synths that fully accentuate the fly ish Meek Mill, Tyga and Mystikal kick on the record.
DJ Stevie J, not to be confused with the infamous Love & Hip-Hop Atlanta personality, had hosting duties on the 24-track project. Fans can download Rich Gang All-Stars on Dat Piff. Stream/download “Fly Rich” below.
”I’m Writing Songs To Perform, To Entertain”
Rapper Mystikal has announced the release of his first album in 12 years. The project, called Original, is due in June. The veteran rhymer, who is now signed with Cash Money Records, told Rolling Stone that he’s been working with former No Limit producer KLC of Beats By the Pound fame.
Among the guests reportedly working on the album are Lil Wayne, Busta Rhymes and Future.
“The sound that’s prominent on the radio, and on hit records now, all that sound the same. I don’t want all my hits to sound like that. I’m writing songs to perform, to entertain,” he says. “And when I’m really trying to get inspired, I go backwards and I just rap.”
”Doggystyle, Spoon, Up-and-Over…”
Cash Money Records rapper Mystikal revealed last month that if his planned musical comeback doesn’t pan out, he’d be willing to try porn as long as he could work with X-rated star, Pinky. The adult actress confirmed she’d be happy to work with the former chart-topper, and in a recent interview, she shared just what she would be willing to do with Mr. “Shake Ya A**.”

“I would love to work with him, especially for my website — and if some other company approached us with a lot of money, I would also do it too as long as they fit all my requirements,” she told Vlad TV. “Do I think he would perform well in the bedroom? I can’t say. I don’t know. … Some of the positions that I would do with Mystikal in the scene are the typical positions I do in my other scenes like doggystyle, spoon, up-and-over, which is when the guy is f*cking you from the back but he’s standing up, I guess froggy position, some people call it, and he’s up and over your booty…”
”I Think He Came Out Looking Better…”
Adult film star Pinky says she’d be more than happy to get dirty with rapper Mystikal in a skin flick. The former incarcerated hip hop star previously said that the voluptuous porn star would be his on-screen partner of choice if he decided to pursue a porn career–and she says she’d gladly work with him.
But she says she won’t pay an ‘amateur’–and that’s how she sees Mystikal.
“No matter how good he is in bed,” she told TMZ.
And Pinky doesn’t care about Mystikal’s past imprisonment.
“I think he came out looking better than when he went in,” she says.
”I’m Definitely the Man, the Myth & the Legend”
Mystikal has a backup plan if his musical comeback fails to succeed. The Cash Money Records rapper told TMZ that he will turn to adult entertainment if his next album isn’t a hit. The rapper–who served a six year prison sentence for sexual battery–says that he’s willing to get down and dirty on-camera and already has an admiration for famed porn star Pinky.
“She’s a bad b*tch. I would take her down in a second,” he says, before adding: “I’m definitely the man, the myth, and the legend.”
Mystikal already won an AVN Award in 2003 for an adult film he helped to get made.
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.

”I Definitely Took Advantage of It”
Speaking for the first time since he was released from prison after serving nearly three months for violating his probation, rapper Mystikal talked about his return to jail and revealed that it was almost as difficult as serving his initial six year sentence.
“81 days I’ma be right back, that’s that bullsh*t,” he said. “The f**kin’ 81 days was just pretty much as tough as that six [years in prison] – of course not as bad, [but] I had did the time, inked my deal and I was on my way back up the charts and here goes the bullsh*t again. G*d damn…I definitely took advantage of it. I used it as an opportunity to just calm down, reflect on everything and just stay fresh and stay home and stay ready for when the days elapsed.”
He also talked about his time in the military in the early 1990s.
“Military, that actually came a year after high school,” he recalled. “Me and Guillotine joined together, too. We actually joined the army to both buy BMWs and Porsches or something like that; we wanted some foreign cars and figured that would be the easiest way to acquire those things. That army life wasn’t for me. As soon as I left to go to the army, KLC and them started making records – c’mon man, what kinda sh*t is that there?”
