Random Acts of F*ckery: Nelly Is Planning To Release A Country EP

Yes, you read that right. Nelly is planning to release a new country-based EP. Speaking with Billboard, his new manager J. Erving (of Atom Factory) revealed the unsettling news…

“He’s a free agent on the label side now, and is working on a country-based ‘Heartland’ EP, which should be really interesting. He may be one of the first hip-hop artists to jump into that space in an authentic way with Florida Georgia Line and Tim McGraw, so we think he has an opportunity to grow that base even more.”

I guess after the success of his “Over & Over” collaboration with Tim McGraw on Sweat/Suit and him appearing on Florida Georgia Line’s “Cruise” in 2013, it was only a matter of time before the St. Louis emcee dropped the Grammar and kept it Country. I just wish it happened in another lifetime.
