'Hot In Here' rapper Nelly has revealed his "shock" with the ecstacy, marijuana and heroin that was found on his tour bus yesterday.

Nelly was travelling in Sierra Blanca on Thursday when law enforcements stopped the vehicle at the border and found drugs during a search.

According to TMZ, a gun, heroin and marijuana were found and confiscated, and a man named as Brian Keith Jones was taken into custody. The rapper and the rest of his entourage were also detained in the vehicle but were allowed to carry on with their journey shortly after.

Nelly released a statement to the website in which he says he had no involvement or knowledge of the substances and firearm found on the bus.

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

"Neither I nor anyone else on the tour bus was aware of his decision to bring these on board. Law enforcement officials did not press charges against anyone other than that individual."

Other celebrities to have been stopped at the same border, include Snoop Dogg, Willie Nelson and Fiona Apple.
