Her guests included T.I. and Tiny, her parents and her sister. Nelly looked carefree at the bash following drugs being found on his tour bus in Sierra Blanca, Texas last week. However, things could get complicated for Nelly, as his associate, Brian Keith Jones, who initially took responsibility for the massive amount of drugs that included 36 baggies of heroin and 10 pounds of marijuana, pleaded not guilty to felony drug charges when he appeared in court. Jones has since been released from jail.
