Charlamagne on Nelly Going Country: Hip-hop Abandoned Him
www.vladtv.com – Charlamagne tha God shared his thoughts on Nelly doing a country album, and The Breakfast Club host believes that the transition is due to Nelly following the fans that are showing him love, something he’s no longer getting in the hip-hop realm. The “Brilliant Idiots” star pointed out that Nelly is getting booked for a lot of summer festivals and it makes the most sense that he would experiment with putting out a country album.
During the sit-down Charlamagne also spoke about Kanye joining Diddy’s producer supergroup The Hitmen, and unlike Nelly’s career move, Charlamagne couldn’t get behind this switch. He told VladTV that Kanye’s credentials as a producer are powerful enough on their own that it makes no sense for the Chicago-born entertainer to link up with Diddy in that capacity.
