Get Ready for Nelly’s Supergroup
Nelly has teamed up with Akon, T-Pain and Pharrell Williams to form a rap super-group.
“Me, T-Pain, Akon and Pharrell are talking about doing a project,” he told MTV news. “We got a host of things we’re trying to do — possibly put together this new 2009 [Bell Biv DeVoe] type of thing.”
And Nelly isn’t worried about conflicted schedules getting in the way of the collaboration.
He adds, “I don’t think you try to put things together with people you don’t think you can accomplish (them) with. With ‘Kon, with Pain and Pharrell, I know it’s more about the music than anything. It’s about leaving something.
But Williams won’t reveal details. “Those are all my boys. I’m kinda like the only one that adheres to the oath of secrecy. I don’t wanna break that.”
Obviously, no release date for the project has been set — the guys are just in the planning stages.
Meanwhile, Nelly is about to shoot a video for the next single from Brass Knuckles, “One and Only.”
