NEW ORLEANS – Rapper Mystikal released from prison after posting bond.

Michael Tyler, better known as rapper Mystikal, is free on a $3 million bond.

He posted the bail Tuesday night with the help of family and friends.

Mystical spent almost 18 months in the Caddo Correctional Center in Louisiana.

The charges stem from an incident of alleged sexual assault at a local casino in October 2016.

He has pleaded not guilty to both charges.
