( Former Roc-A-Fella Records crooner Rell was one of three men arrested in a drug sting in Calhoun County, South Carolina yesterday (Mar. 29).

Rell, born Wilbur Gerrell Gaddis, was arrested after Postal Service agents intercepted a package containing 50 pounds of marijuana in Columbia, SC.

Agents allowed the package to be delivered to a home in Saint Matthews, SC, where police arrested Rell and two associates.

Rell, 30, originally hails from Bowman, SC, but listed a New Jersey residence at the time of his arrest.

All three men were charged with conspiracy to traffic marijuana.

Rell was the first male R&B singer signed to Roc-A-Fella Records.

He first appeared in Jay-Z’s movie Streets Is Watching and contributed the single “Love For Free” to the movie’s soundtrack.

He also appeared on “The Message” featuring Mary J. Blige, from Dr. Dre’s album 2001.

While signed to Roc-A-Fella, Rell also recorded with artists like Kanye West, Consequence, Young Gunz, Beanie Sigel and others.
