Nelly Issues Statement On Drugs and Guns Arrest

By HHL Editors

HT_cornell_haynes_nelly_2_jt_150412_16x9_992Judging from the lyrics of the classic Nelly track 'Ride Wit Me', the emcee has always taken a very liberal stance on drug use in his vehicles.

That bit him in the ass last weekend when Tennessee police searched his tour bus and found crystal meth, several handguns and a small amount of weed.

Yesterday, the 40-year old made an IG statement about the arrest, taking responsibility for the drugs but also implying the contraband belonged to those he allowed to ride wit him.

Although I am unable to speak to the legal specifics and my attorney has put out a preliminary statement, I feel the need to take responsibility for my choices in needing to be more aware of the people I associate with and allow onto my property while committing to make better choices moving forward. While my instinct of course, is to be accessible to my friends, fans and acquaintances, the last thing I would want to do is compromise the respect and admiration of my friends, family and fans.

Additionally, Nelly's lawyer says the drugs that the authorities have said are methamphetamines are actually ecstasy.
