    10 Raunchiest Rap Music Videos Of All Time

    In the world of rap, “raunchy music video” is almost always code for “ass-shaking fiesta.” Thus, when narrowing down this list from 30+ videos to 10, I was forced to take multiple criteria into consideration. Is the song any good? Was it popular?

    Over the 20 or so years they've coexisted, rappers and reality TV have had a pretty great relationship. "Flavor of Love" is still one of the most popular reality programs of all-time, more people know Xzibit for "Pimp My Ride" than his appearances on Dr. Dre's 2001 (and even less for his solo music), and even short-lived flops like Three 6 Mafia's "Adventures In Hollyhood" still attracted cult followings.

    Nelly Apologizes For Felony Drug Arrest

    Last week, Nelly's bus was pulled over near Chattanooga, TN for failing to display necessary stickers. The cops smelled weed, searched the bus, found the weed--as well as some more contraband--namely, several guns, and a plastic bag full of rocks that would test positive for meth.  Nelly was taken to the county jail and released shortly thereafter, though the St. Louis rapper is now faced with a felony charge. Today, Nelly spoke on the charges for the first time, and issued an apology--well, sort of--he mostly eschews all blame entirely.

    While we haven't heard any new music from Nelly since 2013, the St. Louis rapper's latest live performance took him where no other rapper--or American artist--has gone before. Nelly recently traveled to northern Iraq to perform in Erbil, becoming the first American artist to ever perform in the city. The concert was part of an event put on to raise money for the "peshmerga," the Kurdish military force that's been fighting the terrorist group ISIS in northern Iraq. The event, which included motocross and soccer, reportedly drew 15,000 people.

    What's this, a reissue of Nellyville? Unfortunately no, there's no news of a reissue of or sequel to Nelly's 2002 album (the 14th best selling rap release of all time), but it is the name of an upcoming reality series that the St. Louis MC will be starring in.

    The city of Ferguson, Missouri has been in the news all week due to events stemming from the shooting of unarmed teenager Michael Brown by a police officer. With St. Louis just about a 20 minute drive away, many people expected hometown hero Nelly to speak up in the days following the shooting, and finally, he has.

    Earlier this week, we reported that 50 Cent took an Instagram jab at Floyd Mayweather with regard to Nelly stealing the boxer's ex-girlfriend. Now, Nelly himself has come forth regarding the issue, denying beef but still offering a few choice words for Mayweather regarding the boxer's intelligence.

    Floyd Mayweather has had his share of beefs with hip-hop artists over the past few years (including a major riff with T.I. over the past few weeks), but perhaps no battle has lasted as long as that between him and G-Unit head honcho 50 Cent.

    Nelly Defends Drake's Singing

    Nelly is sometimes overlooked as an early adopter of melodic rapping. The St. Louis rapper rarely spit a verse that didn't have a tune to it in his heyday, and later went even further into a singing direction with country crossover songs and the like. Drake, who also has a tendency to sing as much as he raps, is criticized by purists for not sticking entirely to hip hop. In a recent interview with VladTV, Nelly came to the defense of Drake's direction.

    First Week Sale Projections For Nelly & Justin Timberlake

    Justin Timberlake's follow-up to his enormous come-back effort, The 20/20 Experience, won't be following up when it comes to numbers. The sales projections for The 20/20 Experience 2 are in, and it's looking like less than half of the original did. While the first album pushed nearly a million sales opening week, the second installment is looking to move 350-375k. Although this may be lacklustre in terms of JT, it'll still get him the #1 spot on the charts, and it's way better than the amount Nelly is going to move.

    After being held captive for ten years in Ariel Castro's Cleveland home, Amanda Berry was freed earlier this year, and has now made her very first public appearance, at a Nelly concert strangely enough.  The St. Louis rapper brought Berry onstage, honoring the 27-year-old's bravery and perseverance through her horrible conditions.  “I wanna make sure we get a chance to thank you cause I know it’s a long time,” Nelly told Berry. “I can’t even imagine the type of courage and strength it took to keep it going so, I commend you and thank you.”

    St. Louis rapper, Nelly, was on ESPN’s “First Take” and went off on Kobe Bryant, blaming him for the Lakers misfortune of a first round exit, and Dwight Howard bolting to Houston.  Take this for what it’s worth, but the “Hot In Herre” got heated in a 10 minute debate of sorts (screaming match?) with Stephen A. Smith when the discussion of Dwight Howard leaving the Lakers came up.
