After turning himself into Louisiana police last month on first degree rape charges, early 2000’s rapper Mystikal has been officially indicted. Though in addition to the rape charge, a kidnapping charge has been tacked on. Unsurprisingly, representatives for for Mystikal were not available for comment. The offense allegedly occurred in on October 22, 2016, at a Shreveport casino, which Mystikal was visiting during a tour. If the name Mystikal isn’t ringing any bells right now, listen to the song below and you will likely be transported to the early 2000’s.
With a bulky ‘legal issues’ section on his Wikipedia page, this is nowhere near the first assault Mystikal has been involved in. Back in 2003, he pleaded guilty to sexual battery and extortion relating to an incident with his hairstylist. Upon release from prison six years later, he was registered as a sex offender and said, “I was gone so long, all the things I achieved, all the accolades I attained, it felt like it was a dream. It felt like I’d never done that stuff. But watch how I shake this world up now — I want reparations.” This was before gaining another battery charge in 2012.
