It looks like Mystikal could be close to getting the money he needs to post bail to get out of prison as he waits for his rape case trial to begin.
According to TMZ, Mystikal was booked back in 2017 for first-degree rape and second-degree kidnapping. As he’s been behind bars his family and friends have been raising money to help post his $3 million bail.
His attorney Joel Pearce, told the site that his new record deal is what can really help them reach their goal. Tim Yazbeck, another attorney for Mystikal, says the new deal is for three unreleased albums and he’s hoping to get an advance within days.
His legal team says they are confident that he could be released on bail as soon as the end of next week.
As we previously reported, Mystikal pleaded not guilty to charges that stemmed from an assault that took place in October of 2016.
