New Orleans rapper Mystikal is out on bail after finally being able to come up with bond money. A whopping $3 million is what they wanted before they let him go free. However, he still has a court date pending in May. You may know he was arrested and booked for rape back in August of 2017, and he’s been in jail ever since because the bail money was so prohibitively high.
What’s different now? TMZ reports that he was able to secure the funds as an advance on a record deal he’s been working on. One of the hottest rappers of his day, Mystikal is sure to clean up in live shows, if nothing else.
As for the trial… His attorney, Joel Pearce says, “Based on all of the evidence we have, we strongly believe that an amicable resolution is not only possible but probable.” That’s legal speak for settlement talks with his alleged victim. Whatever the road, looks like Mystikal has made his way home, for now.
Until the next time it drips, people… peace.
