Rap veteran Mystikal is hoping the truth comes out. New footage has surfaced of the hip-hop artist turning himself over to law enforcement in a publicized rape case.

In the footage, Mystikal is all smiles as he turns himself into a sheriff’s station.

Some reports claim the alleged rape victim is lying about what happened.

Tenichia Wafford is wanted because cops say she tried to strong-arm the alleged victim into dropping charges that Mystikal and another man raped her in October of last year in Louisiana. Tenichia admits she called the woman, but only because they were friends, and that’s when the alleged victim told her there was no rape. It’s unclear if Tenichia is saying the alleged victim stated there was sexual contact with consent or no sexual contact at all. Tenichia says she recorded her conversation with the alleged victim.

Last week, reports initially developed over Mystikal’s serious case.

Shreveport Police obtained warrants for one count of First Degree Rape for Tyler and a second individual, Averweone Holman. Police are also looking for Tenichia Wafford, who allegedly tried to convince the victim to drop the charges. U.S. Marshals arrested Holman on Friday, but Tyler and Wafford are still at large. The alleged incident occurred at a Shreveport casino on October 22. (Pitchfork)

There is reportedly evidence from the crime scene which connects Mystikal.

Sources say the allegation stems from an incident at a Shreveport casino. The rapper was in Shreveport-Bossier last year for the “Legends of Southern Hip-Hop” concert. Investigators reportedly collected evidence at the scene matching 46-year-old Michael Tyler (Mystikal) and 26-year-old Averweone Holman. (Fox 8 Live)
