Nelly’s first impression of the can itself?
“I thought it was a drug, man,” he said. “I mean, the picture was great. This is the main thing you worry about. Anyway, well, how will the picture turn out? Because this is not a color or not a traditional promo photo. But they did a great job. “
The partnership with Budweiser lasts a spectacular year for Nelly. “Country Grammar,” which put St. Louis hip-hop on the national map with hits such as the title track and “Ride Wit Me,” turned 20 earlier this year.
“The fact that it’s 20 years, and the fact that it doesn’t look that long ago, I mean, it strikes you a little differently,” he said. “But you are grateful that this has affected the lives of so many people. You are grateful for all the joy and all the opportunities you have brought to people outside of the people you even know. “
Nelly is currently starring in the new season of ABC’s Dancing with the Stars.
“It’s something I knew would push me because I mean two left legs,” he said.
(In Monday’s episode, these two left legs danced the samba.)
