Jelly Roll reflects on his life in custody in Nashville

Jelly Roll recently shared details about his former detention in Rebel Country, which premiered on June 10 at the Tribeca Film Festival.

Jelly was seen contemplating his arguments with the law as he entered the Metro-Davidson County Correctional Facility in Nashville.

“At the age of 14, I started making a series of decisions that led to what I call the revolving door of justice,” the 39-year-old said.

The Son of a sinner crooner stated: “So, I would say from 14 to 24 years I spent eight, eight and a half people in prison. Go home for six months and go back to prison for a year.

Jelly also showed where he lived, saying, “This is the house. I never thought I’d lay down here (again).”

Later, the musician reflected on his life in the Nashville neighborhood of Antioch.

“For many years I looked back on my childhood and the only emotion I could think of was anger,” he noted.

Jelly mentioned, “I would be angry about this situation. Establishment. Lack of resources. Not just for us – for everyone.”

“He’s a crazy man. Once I started thinking clearly and dreaming, I stopped looking through those windows and seeing barbed wire. I started to achieve success,” he added.

In another interview with MagazineJelly admitted that he did not perform abroad due to conflicts with the law.

“I’m very excited (to perform outside the United States). We are working on the last elements of the legal puzzles so that I can go abroad,” the singer said.
