Over the past few months, Nelly has been trying to re-establish himself in the game. In the early 2000s, Nelly was one of the biggest artists on the planet. But, in 2005, he took a break from music. Nelly returned in 2008, but soon took off, once again.
But, after watching Eminem leave the game for six years and return to the top, Nelly is convinced he can do the same thing. Without the help of Dr. Dre and the machine of Interscope, Nelly was close to selling diamond.
Beginning with his 5.0 album, Nelly plans to get back on his grind and release albums each year. But, before he does all of this, he needs to reintroduce himself to his people. Ever since "The Mo'Nique Show" premiered on BET, it has been all of the buzz within the black community. If Nelly is serious about a comeback, he should start there.
Obviously serious about returning to the game, Nelly has arranged to sit on the couch and talk to Mo'Nique about what he has been doing. Outside of music, Nelly has dealt with deaths in the family and a breakup from longtime girlfriend, Ashanti. All of this pain outside of the music could easily boil over onto the album, which could make it music worth going after when it is released.
