On Saturday (May 6), the No Limit founder took time out of his set at the Lovers & Friends Festival in Las Vegas to show solidarity with his fellow NOLA native – playing some of his tracks including “Here I Go” and “Shake Ya Ass.”
HipHopDX was on hand to capture footage from P’s set on the Crunk Stage at the Las Vegas festival, which included him yelling “Free Mystikal!” and telling the crowd: “Y’all get your hands up for my dawg.”

Mystikal continues to sit behind bars without bail or a trial date, following a recent request from his new legal team to push proceedings back.
Documents filed in April show that Mystikal’s new defense attorney, Tiffany Myles Crosby, asked a state district judge to continue her client’s jury trial because she needed time “to become abreast of all pertinent issues in this matter in order to provide efficient representation.”
Crosby asked for the continuance without a new trial date, and prosecutors in Ascension did not oppose the delay. It was granted the same day.
In March, Crosby filed a request for a gag order to be placed on Mystikal’s rape and false imprisonment case upon joining his legal team – citing an “inordinate amount of publicity.”
The former No Limit rapper was formally charged with rape along with nine other criminal counts by a grand jury this past September. The list of other charges brought against Mystikal include false imprisonment, domestic abuse battery by strangulation, simple robbery, possession of heroin, possession of methamphetamine and illegal possession of Xanax. Mystikal has pleaded not guilty to all charges.
A short time later, it was reported that he had been accused of forcing his alleged rape victim to pray with him before sexually assaulting her.
Prosecutors explained the rapper, who was allegedly high on drugs at the time, wanted to rid the woman of any “bad spirits” in her body before the alleged rape occurred.
The unidentified woman alleged the incident took place at his Prairieville home on July 30 after Mystikal accused her of stealing $100 from him. She claimed he became so irate that he physically attacked her, pulled the braids out of her hair, confiscated her keys and cell phone and prevented her from leaving his home.
She also claimed Mystikal threw rubbing alcohol on her before calling for a few “Hail Marys.” She eventually managed to escape and was treated at the Baton Rouge General Hospital for injuries.
