Earlier this week, a Louisiana jury indicted American rapper Mystikal on first-degree charges. The musician was detained for as*xual assault that allegedly took place in late July. If convicted, the artist faces a life sentence under state law. Mystikal, whose real name is Michael Lawrence Tyler, is also charged with simple robbery, domestic violence, false imprisonment and simple criminal property damage.
His attorney, Joel Pearce, told reporters in a statement:
“It’s a damning indictment.” It has no meaning. “We’re looking forward to our day in court.”
Tyler, 51, was arrested July 31 in New Orleans, Louisiana, on charges of first-degree r*pe. That same day, at 12:50 p.m., the rapper was arrested. He was charged with five charges alleged to have occurred at 9:21 am that day. Tyler was released on bail in June and as a result he fired his counsel. He retained the services of another attorney who had previously defended him in another sexual assault case in 2017, which also included charges of first-degree assault and second-degree kidnapping.
Mystic Net Worth
Mystikal will have a net worth of $2 million (about £1.6 million) in 2022, according to Celebrity Net Worth. In early 1995, the singer signed with Jive. The following year, he re-released his first album, Mind of Mystikal. According to Wealthy Genius, the album had significantly more commercial success on the reissue, and it also charted on multiple US Billboard charts. All sales and marketing made the rapper an estimated $80,000 in total.
After that, the singer recorded two studio albums on Master P’s No Limit label, Unpredictable and Ghetto Fabulous. These projects grew in popularity as they both entered the US Billboard 100 and reached the top five. The singer worked with several musicians in the early 2000s, including Sick the Shocker, OutKast, Nivea and Butch Cassidy. Let’s Get Ready, his fourth studio album, also reached number one. Mystikal recorded many platinum and gold certified albums during his career and with sales of 2 million, he earned an estimated $350,000.
The singer’s total career earnings are estimated at $7.5 million dollars. According to the newspaper, the artist pays about 41% of his professional income in taxes. After tax, his career earnings are expected to be approximately $4.42 million USD. The artist is also reported to have spent between $2 and $3 million dollars. He also paid about $800,000 in business expenses.
Mystikal has already been charged.
It is not the first time that Mystikal has been charged with a major crime. In 2003, the singer was accused of sexual assault and extortion. The artist pleaded guilty to beating his hairdresser in early 2004 and faced up to six years in prison. Vercy Carter and Leland Ellis, his bodyguards, also pleaded guilty to the crime. While still in custody, the rapper was charged with two felony charges.
He was also convicted in federal court and given the option to serve a one-year federal term in addition to his six-year state sentence. In January 2006, he was refused parole. A year later, he was released from prison due to federal taxes. The artist was released in 2010 and charged with s*x crimes.
After a disagreement with a domestic partner, the singer was jailed again in February 2012. He was also charged with felony domestic violence. In 2017, he surrendered to the Caddo Parish Sheriff’s Department, which issued a warrant for his arrest. He was charged with r*pe in 2019 and was incarcerated at the Caddo Correctional Center on $3 million bail. r*pe’s charges were dropped the following year due to lack of evidence.
