Mystikal Falls Off Stage Mid-Performance, Is Unable to Finish Show: Video
Mystikal is recovering after he fell off the stage during a concert.
The Louisiana artist made his way onto the stage at The RITZ Ybor in Tampa, Fla. on Thursday night (Aug. 8). According to TMZ, Mystikal made his grand entrance around 1 a.m. He was only about 30 seconds into his set when he slipped and fell offstage.
In the video, we can see Mystikal performing when all of a sudden the rapper slips and falls. Security can be seen helping him back on stage, but based off his facial expressions, people who attended the concert could tell that Mystikal was seriously injured.
He spent about 45 minutes sitting on the edge of the stage with the mic in his hand and attempted to keep the show going by performing his portion of Slik Tha Shocker's "It Ain't My Fault." After expressing that he needed an ambulance midway through his performance, Mystikal ultimately decided that the pain was too much and had to be escorted off stage with the help of security. Once he limped off the stage, the show was cut short.
Mystikal's unfortunate slip-and-fall incident comes six months after he was released from jail. Back in February, the rapper’s attorneys told TMZ that Mystikal, who was charged with first-degree rape and second-degree kidnapping, was able to pay up the $3 million for his bond and secure his release.
“I can travel. I can earn some of my money back that I spent. I am in an incredible bind," Mystikal told WAFB in February.
