Sooo… remember Nelly? The “rapper” who sang about how you need to strip down because of how hot it is? Yeah, I know, it’s been a while. When last we heard from him, he was being detained by police for having a shit ton of weed and heroin on his tour bus. Fast-forward three years and it looks like it’s more of the same, only this time Nelly was arrested for having a shit ton of weed, ecstasy and METH on his bus. Jesus.
A state trooper pulled over the bus Saturday morning for not having a required Dept. of Transportation sticker … and when the officer caught a strong whiff of pot … he decided to conduct a search.
Cops say they found a baggie with crystal rocks that tested positive for meth, and a small amount of marijuana in the sleeper area of the bus. They say they also found quite the stash of guns — a .50 caliber pistol, a .45 caliber pistol, and a .500 magnum Smith and Wesson.
Nelly was booked for the meth — a felony — and misdemeanor marijuana possession. He was also booked for drug paraphernalia — cops say there were about 100 small Ziplock bags commonly used for the sale of drugs.
But guys, let’s not get ahead of ourselves – just because this has totally happened before doesn’t mean Nelly’s guilty! In fact, he swears all those drugs aren’t even his, they were put there by someone else!
Nelly’s lawyer, Scott Rosenblum, tells TMZ, there were 15 to 20 people who had access to the bus prior to the stop and there were multiple people on the bus when cops searched it. Rosenblum seems to take issue with cops on the meth issue, saying “a small quantity of [MDMA/Ecstasy] was discovered.”
Rosenblum adds, “Nelly will not be associated with the contraband that was allegedly discovered.”
LOL, yeah, okay dude. Whatever you say.

Rapper Nelly was detained last night in Texas while police officers searched his tour bus — and found HEROIN in addition to a loaded gun … and MASSIVE amounts of weed … law enforcement sources tell TMZ.
According to law enforcement sources, Nelly’s bus was stopped at a border patrol checkpoint in Sierra Blanca — and a police canine detected the presence of drugs.
We’re told cops pulled the bus over — and after performing a search, they found 36 small baggies of heroin (totaling .64 ounces) and over TEN POUNDS of marijuana inside a large green duffel bag (an amount roughly the size of a large bed pillow).
Cops also say they found a loaded .45 caliber pistol.
There were seven people riding on Nelly’s bus at the time — including the rapper — and they were all detained during the search.
According to law enforcement sources, one of the passengers — a guy named Brian Keith Jones — admitted the drugs and the gun were his. He was subsequently placed under arrest.
So. That’s a lot of weed and a lot of heroin. Cool. You know, even if your friend is saying that it’s his, it’s just totally awesome to be traveling with that kind of bulk. Gives you the right kind of cred you need in order to be friends with the heavy-hitters, huh?
Nothing makes me happier than seeing hot men projected as sexy pieces of meat.
So I’m pretty thrilled with this new Nelly ad for Sean John.
“To me, Nelly is the quintessential definition of the Sean John man,” says Diddy. “And let’s be honest, all of the ladies out there are going to be thanking us for this campaign.”
Thank you, Diddy.
But next time let’s do this shot without the underwear, k? You can just have someone draw your logo onto his wee-wee with marker. And by “someone” I of course mean “me.”
The singer turned 27 on October 13, and celebrated in Atlanta with pals Nelly and Jermaine Dupri.
Wow, 27 whole years without a DUI, a crotch shot or a SCRAM bracelet. And somewhere in all that legal, respectable activity, she managed to win a Grammy and be the first female to have three singles in the Billboard Hot 100 in the same week.
Tragically, this means the only time we write about her is on her birthday.
Oh well. Still better than jail. Or is it?
