Despite his mixtape Whiskey, Weed, & Waffle House’s success, he faced a problem when Waffle House was none too happy about the dilution of their brand and served Jelly Roll with a lawsuit. Soon after he was served, Jelly couldn’t even access his Facebook or YouTube profiles. As a result of the lawsuit, he was not able to use his accounts for more than a week.
Apart from that, Jelly Roll put a hard work to lose a whole bunch of weight after his doctors told him he might not live to see 30 if he stayed as heavy as he was. So he got to walk miles each day to drop many pounds of weight. His decision to embrace a healthier lifestyle has led him to create over a dozen different albums, mixtapes, and EPs since 2013.
