Rapper Nelly’s Tour Bus Gets Busted for Drugs and Loaded Gun

Rapper Nelly had his tour bus raided for drugs and gun possession this week although he claims he was unaware that the materials were on board. Fortunately for him, he was not taken to the “big house”. The staff member responsible for the illegal items confessed  was taken away.

According to TMZ, Nelly said “It is my understanding a member of my staff made an unfortunate decision to bring unlawful materials onto our tour bus that resulted in his arrest this morning.”

TMZ reported that the items confiscated on the bus included several pounds of marijuana, heroin and a .45 caliber pistol.

It’s not unheard of for those in the rap music industry to be associated with these types of problems. As many of you may know popular artists such as Lil Wayne and T.I. were also involved in similar situations such as this.
Do you think this industry is prone to having these types of problems? Or are hip hop artists under greater scrutiny than those in other genres?
