In August, St. Louis, Missouri emcee Nelly agreed to temporarily handle rush hour radio hosting for local 104.1 FM, while acting host Staci Static was on maternity leave. It now appears that the St. Lunatic will be taking his radio hosting abilities overseas.
TheBoomBox.com reports that Nelly will take on Saturday afternoon radio duties for Global Music Choice FM radio show in the United Kingdom. Nelly’s hosting will begin on November 6. The rapper will reportedly devote his playlists to “the biggest and best in urban music.”

The-Dream is best known for his production for Rihanna, Beyonce and Mariah Carey.
