HOUSTON – Houston rapper Paul Wall was arrested early Friday morning on felony drug charges.
Thirty-five-year-old Paul Michael Slayton, the rapper’s legal name, has been charged with possession of a controlled substance with intent to deliver.
According to the Houston Police Department, officers issued a narcotics warrant to 1307 Yale in The Heights around 12:15 a.m. Rapper Baby Bash and eight others were also arrested.
As of Friday afternoon, jail records indicate Slayton and Bryant have made bond.
“People make mistakes and that’s what happened, huge, yeah, yeah pretty big mistake,” said Baby Bash.
“It’s 150 people there, some people have wax, which is THC concentrate, it’s no drug. They try to make it sound like a drug raid, but they are doing their job and we shouldn’t have did it. We did it at a public place and you know this ain’t California y’all,” said Baby Bash.
“It was a party and of course we do hip hop and part of the culture is marijuana,” said Baby Bash.
Paul Wall’s attorney Jolanda Jones told us he is innocent.
This is not the first time Paul Wall and Baby Bash have gotten in trouble together.
