Most know Mystikal from 2000—the year when his “Shake That Ass” followed Juvenile’s “Back That Azz Up” on the charts and out of the speakers at clubs, parties, and barbecues across the country—and 2001, when his James-Brown-as-produced-by-the-Neptunes single “Bouncin’ Back (Bumpin’ Me Against the Wall)” performed a similar feat. Real heads, however, remember the strength of the NOLA don’s early No Limit releases and geeked again when a video of him, finally out of prison and rapping in a car with Mannie Fresh, made its way around the Web. Catch him while you can: Shortly after the performance, the Louisiana Department of Corrections takes him back for a parole violation.
