1/13/2019 12:20 AM PST
Mystikal is THIS close to getting the money he needs to post bail and get out of prison while he waits for his rape case trial to begin … thanks to friends and a record deal.
You may recall the rapper was booked in 2017 for first-degree rape and second-degree kidnapping after he turned himself in following a Louisiana woman who came forward.
He’s been behind bars ever since (almost a year and a half), but people around him have recently rallied and he could be set free soon, pending his trial in May.
Mystikal’s attorney, Joel Pearce, tells TMZ … his client’s friends and family have been raising money to help post the $ 3 million bail. But, what really helped is a new music deal.
Tim Yazbeck, another attorney for the rapper, tells TMZ … Mystikal has a new record deal for 3 unreleased albums and he’s hoping to get an advance within days.
Mystikal’s legal team tells us they’re confident he’ll be out on bail by the end of next week.
