Rapper Nelly Jailed After Meth & Pot Found On Tour Bus

Published: Saturday 11th Apr 2015 by Rashad

“Hot In Herre” hitmaker Nelly is feeling the heat from Tennessee law enforcement today after he was busted with drugs on his bus.

With meth, marijuana, and a few other gems among those listed as substances found, the rapper found himself in the slammer as a result.

The full story below:

Via Chattanooga News:

“A Tennessee state trooper arrested internationally known hip-hop artist “Nelly” on felony drug charges in Putnam County on Saturday morning.

Nelly…was charged with felony possession of drugs, simple possession of marijuana and possession of drug paraphernalia.

At approximately 9:20 a.m. on Saturday, Trooper Michael Loftis stopped a Prevost motor coach bus on Interstate 40 near the 275 mile marker for failure to display a U.S. Department of Transportation (DOT) and International Fuel Tax Association (IFTA) sticker on the vehicle. The investigating trooper planned to conduct an inspection on the bus when he noticed an odor of marijuana emitting from the vehicle.

…The troopers discovered in the sleeper area a plastic bag that contained five colored crystal-type rocks that tested positive for methamphetamine, as well as a small amount of marijuana and other drug paraphernalia…”



Reports have it there were several guns found aboard the vehicle as the 40-year-old rapper and his crew were in route to St. Louis.

This arrest follows similar news just two years ago that indicated the rapper had been arrested after cops discovered heroin and marijuana on his tour bus.  Read more on that here.

  3. No favs, just here for the music April 11, 2015

    I don’t really care much for this headline but…

    Just today, I found out he is dating Floyd’s ex-fiancee.

    • No favs, just here for the music April 11, 2015

      I had no idea lol

      • TheElusiveLamb April 11, 2015

        Ray-J is dating Floyd’s ex, Nelly is dating Floyd’s ex, Ashanti briefly dated Floyd, and the cycle continues. They all pass each other around. Hollywood most likely has a STD clinic on every corner and an express website for these ppl. Digusting.

      • Tyler Makiveli April 11, 2015

        Word!?? When did Floyd and Ashanti date?

      • TheElusiveLamb April 12, 2015

    • BeyRihLiyah April 11, 2015

      you are so pressed over Rihanna 🙂 are you still mad because Robyn forgot to tip the help hmmm whats the helps name? oh yeah Ciara aka flopping Ci-he

      • #JACKIE April 11, 2015

        Never pressed over a Junkie

  6. Mark111 April 11, 2015

    It’ll get dropped. Can’t prove that it’s his.

  7. Vegeta, Prince of Slayans April 11, 2015

    Flo Rida took his spot and now this is what he’s reduced to. With that being said ride wit me, dilemma, hot in here >>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>> any of the sorry s*** Flo Rida ever made.

    • Mark111 April 11, 2015

      Rida never sold 10 million albums.

      • Vegeta, Prince of Slayans April 11, 2015

        And we should all be grateful for that

      • Mark111 April 11, 2015

        Not to jump on ya, but I never understood that. Nelly and Rida are nothing alike, the same with T Pain and Feature. It’s like calling DJ Mustard the next Timberland.

        ^^ LMAOOOOO! Yes we should.

      • Vegeta, Prince of Slayans April 11, 2015

        Well you have to think about it. In the prime of his career, Nelly was the definition of pop rap the way flo rida is today. They’ll always be different because of their style and the Times they’re in but they occupied the same musical niche if you get what I’m saying. Same with t pain and future. They were both the autotuned hook go to guys in hip hop. Again, the Times, musical sound, and their personal styles make them different from one another but they do the same job

    • TheElusiveLamb April 11, 2015

    I don’t find it a surprise about the drugs as many celebrities (if not all tbh) Do some type of drug, but I do find it a surprise that he is 40. Where did the time go?

  13. Everyone’s A Critic April 12, 2015

    He’s too hot! its a shame about the drugs considering he was playing father figure for the cameras on Nellyville the other day!!!
    But yeah, it’s weird how he got SOOO frickin secksii

  14. ~The Arcade~ April 12, 2015

    What happened to the ‘responsible’ Nelly on the Nellyville reality show?? Inquiring minds want to know!

  15. Gee April 12, 2015

    Damn this sad sometimes it’s best to leave the hood and those that practice hood politics at home especially when you know your name is the one that attracts the press and headlines. Nelly has got to do better.

  16. Casual-T April 12, 2015

    So, Nelly is only 5’8″.

  17. AnnaliseKeatingsNewWig April 12, 2015

    LOL he’s going to need to wear those bandages again, because the men in jail are going to devour him. He’s actually a good guy rapper as well, kind of feel sorry for Nelly or Cornell as Ashanti would call him jk.
