Video: St. Louis Superstar Rapper Nelly Talks about His Upcoming Album, Brass Knuckles



Remember what I said last week, that the Jermaine Dupri hint in the '90s Hip-Hop Jam of the Week was important? Here's why: Last week I met with Nelly at his Skybox restaurant on Laclede's Landing to talk about Brass Knuckles, his upcoming fifth studio album. We'll be unrolling these videos for the rest of the week, so stay tuned for more chatter about Kanye West, the state of hip-hop, the latest on the St. Lunatics and more.

"Kids were skipping school ... Jordans come out on a Wednesday or a Tuesday... There was about 2,000 other kids...There was a line at the Foot Locker, there was a line at the Champ's, there was a line at the Athlete's Foot...That was just that."
