10 Raunchiest Rap Music Videos Of All Time
10 Raunchiest Rap Music Videos Of All Time Apr 22, 2015 at 09:13am
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?
50 Cent Takes Jab At Floyd Mayweather On Instagram
50 Cent Takes Jab At Floyd Mayweather On Instagram Jul 26, 2014 at 05:33pm
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 Defends Drake's Singing Nov 8, 2013 at 11:16am
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.

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.

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.
A History Of Jewelry In Hip-Hop
A History Of Jewelry In Hip-Hop Oct 4, 2015 at 02:10pm
The influence of jewelry on hip hop is as clear as an E-class diamond. But did you know the origins of extravagant jewelry predate hip-hop by several thousand years? African king Mansa Musa (the richest person in human history) was rather fond of gold. At the time of his death in 1337 he was worth a staggering $400 billion dollars. That’s six times the net worth of Warren Buffet. During his reign West Africa controlled over 50% of the world's gold so, as you can imagine, he wore his fair share of it.
Nelly Hosts Kidnapping Victim Amanda Berry's First Public Appearance
Nelly Hosts Kidnapping Victim Amanda Berry's First Public Appearance Jul 28, 2013 at 09:10pm
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.”
Nelly Is Putting Out A Country Project
Nelly Is Putting Out A Country Project Apr 27, 2015 at 05:36pm
From his very first single, Nelly established his "Country Grammar," but it wasn't until a few albums later that he really started to experiment with country music. "Over and Over" -- Nelly's collaboration with Tim McGraw -- may have been a divisive record, but it certainly didn't hurt its chart presence, making it what might've been the first country/rap crossover hit that wasn't recorded by Kid Rock.
Nelly Apologizes For Felony Drug Arrest
Nelly Apologizes For Felony Drug Arrest Apr 14, 2015 at 01:54pm
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. 
Nelly Performs In Iraq To Raise Money For The War Against ISIS
Nelly Performs In Iraq To Raise Money For The War Against ISIS Mar 14, 2015 at 06:20pm
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.

10 Rapper-Hosted Reality Shows We'd Like To See Apr 15, 2015 at 12:07pm
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.

First Week Sale Projections For Nelly & Justin Timberlake
First Week Sale Projections For Nelly & Justin Timberlake Oct 2, 2013 at 03:37pm
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.
