After spending almost 18 months in Caddo Correctional Center, Tyler was able to post his $3 million bail Tuesday night after signing a new record deal and with help from friends and family.

The rapper, originally from New Orleans, was arrested on charges of first-degree rape and second-degree kidnapping.

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

He has pleaded not guilty to both charges.
