Jadakiss Removes Himself From Drugs Scandal
Rapper JADAKISS has distanced himself from a recent drugs scandal at his New York home - insisting he had no involvement in the huge stash of narcotics and cash found during a police raid at the address.
The star's apartment in Yonkers was targeted by cops on Friday (21Aug09), who obtained a search warrant for the premises after arresting two men in a car outside the building on drugs charges.
Officers burst into the residence and discovered a stash of heroin and marijuana as well as $40,000 (£25,000) in cash.
And Jadakiss, who was not at home at the time of the raid and is not wanted in connection to the find, dismisses the incident as an "unfortunate situation" he had no dealings in.
In a statement to Allhiphop.com he says, "What happened on Saturday was an unfortunate situation but one in which I have no involvement in.
"Since the release of my recent album The Last Kiss, I have been on the road touring and promoting my project. I am focused on my performance schedule and career."
