Rapper Mystikal pleads not guilty to rape, kidnapping charges

Mystikal entered a not-guilty plea to charges related to a 2016 incident in which he was accused of assault.

The 46-year-old Louisiana rapper, real name Michael Lawrence Tyler, waived an arraignment in Caddo District Court on Monday, according to KSLA News.

He’s currently facing charges of first-degree rape and second-degree kidnapping.

Tyler is being held in Caddo Correctional Center, where he’s been since Aug. 21.

The “Here I Go” artist’s bond has been set at $ 3 million, though KSLA reports that he’s hoping to see that reduced after his Jan. 18 court date.

TMZ reported that Tyler surrendered to authorities after learning that police in Shreveport, La., issued a warrant for his arrest.
