Hip-hop star Mystikal
is to begin rebuilding his rap career after his six-year prison sentence came to an end on Thursday.
The Grammy-nominated star - real name Michael Lawrence Tyler - was jailed in 2004 on charges of sexual assault and battery. He pleaded guilty after his hairstylist accused him of forcing her to perform sex acts on him and his bodyguard, according to Allhiphop.com.
Tyler was released from jail this week (and has vowed to pursue his music career with renewed vigour.
He tells radio station Q93 FM, "I'm back. It almost feels like a dream. Six years off the scene for most rappers, it would be over with, but it's a new beginning for me. Wait 'til I shake the world up now. I want reparations."
