Mystikal to Headline New Orleans Mardi Gras Concert

A month after his release from prison, hometown rapper Mystikal is set to headline New Orleans’ Mardi Gras festival later this month.

Set to hit the stage for the first time since getting out of jail, the former No Limit rapper will be coming to the Mahalia Jackson Theater of Performing Arts on Tuesday, February 16.

Tickets for the show, billed as “Mystikal and Friends,” are currently on sale at ticketmaster.com.

As previously reported, the N.O. MC was freed from prison on January 14 after serving six years behind bars for sexual battery charges.

“It was tough,” he said of his time spent in jail in an interview on Q93 FM. “I took it in stride. I’m back. It almost feels like a dream. For a while, it felt like, I was gone so long.” —Elan Mancini

    I care. Tic for tat, but he paid dearly in the end.

    He made good music, and his situation is fucked up … because no matter how you look at it, he shouldn’t have done that to that woman, but in retrospect, she shouldn’t have been stealing money in the first place.

    Mystikal made a huge mistake at a pivotal point in his career, and he paid his long debt to society. Nobody on this site is without wrong doing. I hope none of the people on this site aren’t rapist, but u never know nowadays. That bitch should not have stolen that bread either, so all in all, the shit is over and done with. Mystikal did go hard on that muzik back in the day, and I’m sure he’ll be dropping something fresh and new, which is exactly what this industry needs right now. I wish him luck.

    that shit wasn’t rape. it was extortion with sex as the form of payment.

    true it was wrong, but call it what it is.
