www.carbonated.tv Grab your grillz and your Air Force Ones. Nelly’s back baby! The iconic rap star with such hits as “Shake Ya Tail Feather” and “Hot in Herre” has returned…reinvented. Carbonated TV was on set of the star’s new video “Just a Dream” in beautiful Playa del Rey, California and learned that the MC genius has much more than sick rhymes stacked in his back pocket. “Just a Dream” is a track off Nelly’s new album”5.0,” which is set for release on November 16th. Expect mad collaborations with TI, T-Pain, and returnee Kelly Rowland, who collaborated with him on the hit “Dilemma.” He admits she is totally taking the world by storm and is happy to have her in his life. For an individual known to upstart parties with his club beats, “Just a Dream” definitely sets a more demure tempo from the Nelly we’ve come to know. Nelly considers the jam “timeless” and relatable to his fan base: gaining love and losing love. Nelly, now entering the rap game ten years later, seems to be more connected to his heart and soul than before. A man devoted to a cause, Nelly is temporarily hosting a radio show in his home of St. Louis on Hot 104.1 and donating all the money from the gig. He admits that he has always been deeply appreciative of his city St. Louis and has wanted a way to truly show his gratitude and give back to the community. Be on the lookout for Nelly’s new video “Just a Dream” and his album “5.0″ set for release on November 16th. Until then, you can download the above …
