Mystikal Arrested

December 23, 1998 12:00 AM ET

Near Baton Rouge, Lousianna, rapper Mystikal, 28, was pulled over when police spotted the No Limit Soldier smoking a joint. When police searched his car, they found a 9mm handgun, as well. In his defense, Mystikal said that the gun was registered for his personal protection, and that he ''wasn't doing anything. The joint was in the ashtray for I don't know how long." The rapper told the Associated Press, "That was God telling me, 'Don't celebrate that hard. Cool it,'" and that, after the arrest, he'd signed autographs at the police station. If convicted of the felony weapons charge and misdemeanor for drug possession, the rapper could be sentenced for up to 10 years in jail and a fine of $10,000.

“Party Rock Anthem”

LMFAO | 2011

This electro-pop uncle-nephew duo burst onto the scene with 2009’s "Shots," a song about getting totally obliterated. Two years afterward, they were still shamelessly getting wild but now insisting that everyone else join them in the fun. "I wanted a song for when we walked into a party, so I thought, 'Party rock in the house tonight/Everybody just have a good time,'" Redfoo (a.k.a. Stefan Gordy, son of Motown founder Berry Gordy) told Rolling Stone about the lyrics to "Party Rock Anthem." "The 'just' was key. I made it a command to focus people on what to do now that we’re here together."
