Nelly: I think when you’re going into your 13th or 14th year, I don’t care what professional you’re in, you should feel honored to still be recognized for being artistic and being creative. With this album, the energy is somewhat of the one that I had on my first album to where the expectations – there were none. I just went in and did the best music that I felt I could do at that time.


TL: You have a recurring role on the Real Husbands of Hollywood. What was that like?

Nelly: Sometimes you’re lucky enough to fall into a job where you actually look forward to getting up and going to work everyday. I couldn’t ask for a better situation because I’m working with friends. And BET has been a major supporter of Nelly since I came out, so I couldn’t ask for a better situation.
