    Nelly, PLEASE find another way to make money. Music is not a good look, you’re embarassing yourself.

    Ever since the backlash from the Tip Drill vid Universal said f*ck this n*gga, let’s roll with Wayne.

    With all the hoopla and press Nelly got because of Slo-Down and not making that list of the hottest rappers of 21st Century, he still didn’t push 100K. Damn. If he’s going to continue rapping he’s gotta go indie, at least there’s a reasonable explaination for not moving 6 figure units.
