Lloyd Brings Mystikal Back Around With “Set Me Free”
Looks like T.I. isn’t the only rapper staging a return to the rap game after being incarcerated.

“Feels like I got the whole world in my pants/ Girl you can set me free/ I’m feeling like Ali/ In his prime/ I’m a P.I.M.P.,” Lloyd sings in his silky smooth tenor voice. Classy!
But the real icing on this southern-fried meeting of the minds is Mystikal’s rap interlude: “Stop lyin’ on me/ I smash these rappers and pick up trash at the same time, homie/ Young Lloyd called me and told me to sick the dog on ’em/ I’m a doberman pincher/ I got meaner from being behind that fence.”
Well, guess we know now who let the dogs out. Lloyd, who currently features on Young Money’s chart smash “BedRock,” talked to MTV News about “Set Me Free.”
“The N.O. is gonna love me for this one,” the new Interscope signee said. “The world is gonna love me for that song. It is the first of many [singles]. Since the album won’t be coming out until later this year, that’s more than enough time to get many songs out. We’re gonna start hitting them pretty hard.”
As for Mystikal, let’s take a look back at a hit from his glory days—”Stutter,” his collaboration with Joe that reached the top of the Billboard Hot 100 back in 2001:
To quote from one YouTube commenter on this jam, “I haven’t heard it in a long ass time.”
