Rap news in brief

By DAVID THORPE  |  October 24, 2012

When Nelly's tour bus hit a Texas checkpoint this week, cops found 10 pounds of weed, a gun, and 36 baggies of heroin (totaling just under an ounce, if "baggie" isn't a specific enough junk measurement for you). Bad news: according to a statement released by the singer, the stuff wasn't his — I would have loved it if Nelly turned out to be a hardened junkie with a 36-baggie-a-week habit, or a kingpin using a "music career" as a front to run horse and weed to Mexico. No such luck. A hanger-on named Brian Jones was allegedly responsible for all that stuff, and Nelly had not a clue. (Not that Brian Jones, obviously).
