Nelly Addresses Cocaine Habit, Relationship With Ashanti
Nelly is currently crafting his seventh studio album, M.O., a follow-up to his 2010 release 5.0. With one of his first tracks off the LP, the Chris Brown-assisted “Marry Go Round,” going to radio, it was only right for the St. Louis, Mo., native to stop by 92 Q Jams in Baltimore to speak on his career and address some rumors that put him in a negative light.
First up, radio personality iiKane questioned the 37-year-old rapper’s relationship status with his longtime flame Ashanti. He was coy in his reply, however, his demeanor only makes one thing clear: the chemistry is still alive and well between the two. Nelly also set the record straight on owing a reported half a million dollars to Ashanti.
Later in the conversation, drug use was brought up, after news broke last year that Nelly wasted all his dough on a cocaine habit. Listen to the “Hot in Here” rhymer address the speculations here.
