AceShowbiz - Nelly has received an important message from Flesh-n-Bone. The "Hot in Herre" rapper has been warned against using drugs by the Bone Thugs-n-Harmony member after the former sparked concern with his erratic behavior onstage and following the death of Gangsta Boo.
Speaking to TMZ, Flesh-n-Bone, born Stanley Howse, talked about Nelly's "eyes rolling" and "gibberish lyrics" during his recent performance at Juicy Fest Melbourne. Before going into his thoughts, the "Thuggish Ruggish Bone" emcee said he hasn't drank alcohol in two months and quit weed and all other substances six months ago.
"That's one of the reasons why I quit doing substances, because they all gateway drugs," Flesh-n-Bone explained. "All you dopers out there, y'all better be careful, because it's dangerous; you don't know what's in it. But [Nelly] was out there wigged out, you could tell he was stoned because he started, you know, the gibberish and everything."
Flesh-n-Bone further explained how hard it's to perform under the influence. "It's hard to really stay on point. For some people, they can handle it. If you can't handle it, don't even go there. It's really easy to get caught up and slip and forget your lyrics especially when you get off something that's super super strong," he shared.
"Nelly, you to good to be on that type of s**t, man," Flesh-n-Bone continued. "It kinda threw you off, I never seen you like that, man. You might wanna take the dose down just a little bit. Just a word of advice, leave that s-*-*-t- alone. It ain't even worth it."
Elsewhere during the quick interview at LAX, Flesh-n-Bone related the topic to Gangsta Boo's death. "I think it affects not only the Verzuz situation, but the whole culture of Hip Hop ultimately in a very impactful way because, from my understanding, it was an overdose," he stated.
"And that's one of those things that segways into what we was talking about earlier because I know so many people by the dozens, family and friends by the dozens and I have to say fentanyl or whatever the case may be that's coming in, it's mixin' in there, you don't know what you're doing," Flesh-n-Bone continued.
"Nothing's organic or pure anymore, they can slip it in your drink," Flesh-n-Bone elaborated. "And it's in the pills, it's in the weed, it's in the cigars, it's in the cigarettes. Just a little dose of it, it can hurt you, it'll do more damage to you than just the feeling of getting high. I know brothers that lost all their children in their 20s. My brother DJ-Uneek lost both of his sons to that. My brother Ken Dog lost his son to that. The list goes on and on and on. Gangsta Boo OD'd the same thing. Something's got to give, that's one of the reasons why I'm sober today."
Gangsta Boo passed away on January 1. According to reports, the former Three 6 Mafia rapper was found dead around 4:00 P.M. local time in her hometown of Memphis. Though the cause of her death has not yet been revealed, her family has denied any foul play.
