Nelly's long and successful career will finally be documented and viewed as legendary. Despite being in the game for over than ten years, Nelly has yet to have his own "Behind the Music" special. Next month, all of this will change as Nelly's career will be the subject of an all-new episode.
Early in his career, Nelly put St. Louis hip hop on the map and had everyone saying "derrty." But, following the success of his first two albums, Nelly continuously fell off. By 2005, Nelly was an afterthought in the game. Three years later, he resurfaced with his Brass Knuckles album.
Last year, Nelly released 5.0, his worst commercial offering, to date. Following the low sales of his latest album, Nelly has been looking for a way to leave his longtime label, Universal Records. Back in 1999, he would have never guessed he would be searching for a way to leave the label which helped him become a force in the game.
