Mystikal has been in prison since August 2017 when he pleaded guilty to charges of first-degree rape and second-degree kidnapping of a Louisiana woman. But the rapper may be released soon before his May trial is set to begin. His legal team is saying they now have the funds to post the $3 million bail that was set. Funds were raised by friends and family however a large chunk of money is said to be coming from a new record deal advance.

Although Mysitkal may have the money for bail that isn’t a promise that the judge will release the New Orleans rapper.
