    4 million digital downloads of Just a Dream? If that's true, that's impressive. That said, your wackness isn't a dream. Open the doors for some new talent instead.

      Country Grammar was dope as fuck. Good beats on every song and good rhymes for the most part. But Nellyville was disappointing, just had alright singles like "#1" and "Hot in Herre". Everything since then was trash.

    YOUR last cd was a major flop. Don't blame record company next turn around. People have loss interest with you. It happens to the best.

    Nelly, this year instead of saying an album and then relesing it late the next year, live to your promise, massive nelly fan, andd you actually rip most songs up, admittedly you have some bad ones, but loving the comeback, keep it up :)

    What was the name of that Jadakiss track? The one where Havoc sampled...I think Mindwave? Fashawn has a song on Boy Meets World as well... I think it's number 8. Matter fact, Juelz has a cut on his first solo LP that samples that one Usher cut... Damnit. What's the name of those songs? I know it answers this question in my name to this news of Nelly dropping another LP. It's what I wanna tell him right now. Oh yeah. WHY? Dagnabit. I knew I'd figure that ish out. Yo, Nelly. You were wack when you sold units. You're wack now. No one wants to listen to an older nigga say that mess you do now. They wanna listen to Soulja Boy and the "racks on racks on racks" itch-bays say that stuff now. Just go count your money, enjoy life, bone Ashanti, and leave music alone. You've raped the culture long enough as it is. F*** rap. Hip hop for me off top... - Raekwon
