Hip Online recently chatted with Chingy for a Q&A session. Asked if Nelly’s success gave him more of a glimmer of hope because before that St. Louis wasn’t even on the map, the rapper responded, “Everyone was trying they just weren’t making it. You won’t make it just doing St. Louis, you have to travel. We had to travel outside the state and go to place where record labels are at. But with Nelly making it that put a shine on St. Louis.” Check out the entire interview here.
