Nelly discussed the drug bust on his tour bus with Atlanta’s radio station V103.
Last week his tour bus was pulled over in Sierra Blanco, Texas. It is the same location where other artists like Willie Nelson, Snoop Dogg, and Fiona Apple were pulled over and searched. Nelly admits that it is a notoriously bad area.
He limited what he said to the interviewer but gives the impression that he was expecting the stop to be routine. As the search continued, Nelly realized that they would be there for hours. He could not identify who the materials belonged to but could make it clear that it wasn’t his. Despite his past record with drugs etc, Nelly makes it clear that he would not involve himself with such things now. He does not want to jeopardize his current career.
Nelly graciously discusses the situation as a “chapter in life.” It seems like last week’s incident is just a hitch that he will move past.
