Power 107.5


Nelly recently ran to the defense of Iggy Azalea during an interview with The Daily Telegraph where he praised the Australian rapper and revealed he was there for her beginning stages as an artist.

That’s fine and all, but #Ferguson protestors want to know, where is his voice on…well, Ferguson?

Protestors, joined by Denver youth activists, gathered at Nelly’s annual Black & White Ball where they demanded the St. Louis native use his platform to rally around the #BlackLivesMatter movement.

While Nelly set up a scholarship in slain college-bound student Michael Brown‘s honor, activists say it isn’t enough. They want Nelly to speak out against police brutality instead of posing in #MikeBrown t-shirts in what appears to be formulated PR stunts.

If he can talk about Iggy Azalea then he can surely mention the names of Michael Brown, Tamir Rice, Kajieme Powell and more.
