Nelly’s first impression of the can itself?
“I thought it was dope, man,” he said. “I mean, the picture was cool. That’s the main thing you’re worried about. It’s like, OK, how’s the picture? Because it’s not (in) color, or it’s not a traditional promo image. But they did a good job. ”
The Budweiser partnership continues a high-profile year for Nelly. “Country Grammar,” which put St. Louis hip hop on the national map with hits like the title track and “Ride Wit Me”, became 20 years earlier this year.
“The fact that it’s 20 years old, and the fact that it doesn ‘t look that long ago, I mean, it hits you a little differently,” he said. “But you are grateful that it affected the lives of so many people. You are grateful for all the joy and all the opportunities that it brought people outside of the people that you even know. ”
Nelly is also currently starring in the new season of “Dancing with the Stars” on ABC.
“It’s something I knew would push me, because I mean I have two left feet,” he said.
(In the episode that aired Monday, the two left feet danced the samba.)
