Nelly’s first impression of the can itself?
“I thought it was dope man,” he said. “I mean, the picture was cool. That is the main thing you are worried about. It’s like, OK, how will the picture turn out? Because it’s not (in) color or not a traditional promo picture. But they did a great job. “
The Budweiser partnership continues a high profile year for Nelly. “Country Grammar,” which put St. Louis Hip Hop on the national map with hits like 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 seem that long ago, I mean it hits you a little differently,” he said. “But you are grateful that it has affected so many people’s lives. You are grateful for all the joy and opportunities that it has brought to people outside of the people you even know. “
Nelly is currently also playing in the new season of “Dancing with the Stars” on ABC.
“It’s something I knew would drive me because I have two left feet,” he said.
(In the episode that aired on Monday, these two left feet were dancing the samba.)
