Nelly recently chatted with Radio 1 producer Sarah answering questions from fans on the website’s message board. When asked what gives him inspiration for his raps, Nelly said, “Just life. I think that’s why it’s kinda hard for some rappers to do different stuff because their life has been one dimensional. Fortunately my life has been crazy. I’ve moved around a lot and I’ve lived with many different people and been to many schools, whether I’ve been kicked out or we moved.” bbc.co.uk has since removed the audio.
