Nelly – Discusses Tour Bus Arrest

Nelly - Tour Bus IncidentNelly talks about the arrest for the drugs found on his tour bus and says he was not part of bringing the drugs aboard, and feels people are implicating him because of his past.

The rumor mill is churning overtime after Nelly’s tour bus was pulled over and ten pounds of marijuana plus baggies of heroin, and a hand gun were discovered by authorities.  One of the men in Nelly’s entourage said on site that the drugs were his, and he was arrested and Nelly and the rest of his crew were let go.  Now Nelly calls into V103, and provides his version of what took place. He explained how he was completely unaware of the drugs being on his bus. 

“Everything just happened so fast,” Nelly said. He thought at the time, “is this really happening ya’ll?”  Since this is an on-going case, the St. Louis rapper could not give all the details, but says, “Certain stuff we can say, certain stuff we can’t say,” adds, “Got pulled over, things were noticed…as far as K9 ability…and things kinda went from there, in stages.”

People draw on negative aspects of his past to implicate him, says Nelly. “I tell you who it ain’t [regarding whose drugs they were]…Certain things people want to look into my past and wanna take out of it…we’ve all come from certain areas and certain situations to where we do things and we regret doing them.”

Nelly was adamant that he would not foolishly risk his career, and feels that, coupled with the details released by police, should be evidence enough that the weed and heroin were not his, “There’s no way that I would jeopardize everything Nelly has built over the past fourteen, fifteen years…for the situation I was accused.”  Simply adding, “If you read what was put out, the situation explains itself.”
