Despite his success as a country artist, Jelly Roll's criminal background has created significant hurdles in his career.  In an open and candid interview with 'Interview' magazine, the 39-year-old singer shared the complex challenges of planning an international tour.  With a history of approximately 40 incarcerations due to various drug charges, Jelly Roll bears the responsibility and consequences of his past actions.

While the excitement of performing beyond American borders is palpable for the artist, the last leg of his legal struggles remains a stumbling block.  The irony of the situation is not lost on Jelly Roll, as he notes the contrast in the American government's approval to provide him with a passport against the reluctance of other countries to welcome him due to his felonies.  The Grammy-nominated artist speaks of ongoing efforts to navigate these legal intricacies with optimism, believing that a favorable outcome is within reach.

"I never want to overlook the fact that it was a heinous crime," he told Billboard last year.
