Nelly has released a statement following his arrest on drug charges last weekend in Tennessee, saying he needs to “take responsibility” for his choices and be more careful about who he allows onto his property.

On April 11, the rapper was charged with felony possession of drugs, simple possession of marijuana and drug paraphernalia. A search of his bus turned up five rocks that tested positive for methamphetamine.

“I feel the need to take responsibility for my choices in needing to be more aware of all the people I associate with and allow onto my property,” he stated Tuesday, according to TMZ. “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.”

Following Saturday’s arrest, Nelly attorney Scott Rosenblum released the following statement to Billboard.

“Nelly was one of several individuals that was on a tour bus that was stopped and searched while traveling through Tennessee. In fact, there had been 15-20 people that had access to the bus prior to the stop. Allegedly, a small quantity of contraband (MDMA aka Molly or Ecstasy) was discovered during the routine search. We are extremely confident that when the facts come out, Nelly will not be associated with the contraband that was allegedly discovered.”

    Out of all the hip/hop artists I was surprised to hear this about Nelly.
    He always kept his nose clean regarding being caught with either drugs/weapons.

    .This is why folks in the limelight need to be more aware of thos who they associate with.
    Everyone in your posse is not necessarily your FRIEND.

    Hopefull, Nelly will learn a lesson from this.
