Nelly is getting ready to cross over into the world of daytime television. The rapper recently announced that he is developing a talk show with a few of his hip-hop and R&B cohorts.
Here’s what we found out from freddyo.com:
Nelly explains, quote, “It’s me, Jermaine Dupri, Trey Songz, Johnta Auston, Brian Michael Cox and Tyrone ‘International’ Davis(JD’s Right Hand Man). We’re working on kind of like the male version of ‘The View.’” Nelly says he has always wanted to branch out, but turned down a lot of previous offers because, quote, “I felt I wasn’t ready yet.” He adds, quote, “I never want to disrespect the culture and the thing that is acting, thinking just because I’m Nelly I’m going to transition and be good at it.”
Nelly is also currently working on his untitled, sixth studio album. The record is expected in stores later this year.
