He went pop (and country) for awhile, but it seems like Nelly is ready to try and break BACK into the rap game.

This feels like 2003 all over again, when Nelly and Pharrell DOMINATED that rap-singing shit. I love this! I was waiting for Nelly to finally start rapping, because I thought the sing-rapping was Pharrell, lol. I forgot what nelly sounded like for a minute. It’s been that long. This has to get Nelly back in rap’s good graces. It HAS to. Nicki killed her verse too, by the way.
