The Nevada Highway Patrol confirmed he was pulled over on a freeway on-ramp on May 21 near McCarran International Airport for traveling 87 mph in a 65 mph zone.

State troopers spotted an open bottle of beer in the center console and he admitted to smoking marijuana ‘not too long ago’.

The rapper’s blood was drawn at a police station and toxicology tests revealed there was cocaine in his system.

Drayton was charged on marijuana and cocaine charges (as well as domestic violence) in 1993.  He later checked into the Betty Ford Center for treatment of his crack cocaine addiction.
