"It was tough. I took it in stride," he said of his situation. "For a while, it felt like, I was gone so long...I'm back and I love y'all and I missed y'all, and I want to send out appreciation for all the fans...I'm going to be doing a lot of positive things." (BET)

During his prison sentence, he was also charged and convicted of misdemeanor counts of failing to file tax returns for 1998 and 1999. Mystikal began serving his time after January 16, 2004. (Gather)
