Jelly Roll And His Past

All of his fans know that Jelly Roll has not had the best past. The former drug dealer has completely turned his life around for the better. However, drugs still play a role in his life. His daughter’s mother is a drug addict and he is constantly worried he will have to tell his daughter her mother is no longer here.

“Now I have a 15-year-old daughter whose mother is a drug addict. Every day I get to look in the eyes of a victim in my household of the effects of drugs, every single day, I have to wonder … if today will be the day I have to tell my daughter that her mother became a part of the national statistic.”

I hurt people. I was the uneducated man in the kitchen playing chemist with drugs I knew absolutely nothing about, just like these drug dealers are doing right now when they’re mixing every drug on the market with fentanyl and they’re killing the people we love.”

According to U.S Weekly, he also got emotional when talking about all the caskets he has had to carry due to losing people to drugs.
“With this committee, I could sit here and cry for days about the caskets I’ve carried of people I loved dearly, deeply in my soul.”
