US rapper Michael Taylor, also known as Mystikal, has received a six-year jail sentence for sexual battery.
Mystikal's Tarantula album was nominated for a Grammy
The Grammy-nominated rapper was found guilty on Thursday of forcing a hairdresser to perform sex acts on him in his apartment in July 2002.
Tyler left the courtroom in Baton Rouge, Louisiana, in handcuffs.
The 33-year-old rapper's victim accused Tyler and two bodyguards of forcing her to perform the acts after they alleged she had stolen money.
The victim denied she had stolen any money from him.
Mr Tyler's two bodyguards - Leland "Pokie" Ellis, 37 and Vercy "V" Carter, 35 - were also sentenced to three and four years in jail after also pleading guilty to sexual battery.
Judge Tony Marabella, who had seen a videotape the men had made during the assault, said the woman had been "terrorised".
"The court is convinced that the defendant believes he is above the law and can take the law into his own hands," the judge said.
Tyler also earlier pleaded guilty to extortion, for which he had received five years of probation.
The rapper has paid the woman $350,000 (£196,000) - with $300,000 (£168,000) borrowed from his record company.
The rapper's 2001 album Tarantula was nominated for best rap album at the 2003 Grammy Awards.
