Nelly Discusses Dr. Dre Studio Session, Possibly For

Nelly says he and Dr. Dre came up with "certain things he may use on 'Detox.'"

St. Louis, Missouri based rapper Nelly was recently in the studio with Dr. Dre.

Recently sitting down with Vlad TV, Nelly was asked about his studio session with Dre and what project the two were working on. He hinted that they were working mostly on Dre's album.

"Just ideas he was gathering, I guess for Detox or for whatever project we were doing," Nelly said when asked if they were working on Dr. Dre's long-awaited Detox album. "We were basically vibing out."

Nelly also said the two were creating ideas together for use on each of their projects.

"We were just coming up with ideas," he said. "A lot of times you may just be in there collaborating and seeing whatever comes up. So the ideas we were doing were just random ideas and things that we were coming up with–certain things he may use on Detox, certain things he may use (otherwise). Dre works in mysterious ways."

Nelly Speaks On The Mesh Of Country Music And Hip Hop 

During the interview, Nelly also addressed fusing Country with Hip Hop.

"I think people are looking at things wrong when they try to do that," he said when asked about Hip Hop and Country music collaborating. "It's not about one music embracing another, it's about fans that appreciate the collaboration. It's not about Country music embracing Hip Hop or Hip Hop embracing Country music, that's not what that's about, it's for people that like the collaboration.

"Everybody's not going to like the collaboration," he continued. "Everybody don't like R&B mixed with Hip Hop. As funny as that may sound because you see it happen all the time, everybody don't like it, and it's the same thing with every genre of music. It just so happens that that came together and we had a lot of people that supported it."

Nelly has had endeavors in the Country music scene. Aside from his 9-times Platinum-selling debut album, Country Grammar, featuring themes of country life, in April he was featured on a remix of the highly popular single "Cruise," by Country music duo Florida Georgia Line.

  • Detox is a myth
    Detox is never going to get released, the longer he takes, the longer we expect an amazing album and it probably won't live up to the hype, I remember on Game's "The Documentary" album he said "look out for Detox" on one of the tracks, that was like in 2005! LOL
    • Chris Etrata
      Eminem also said on encore (both album and song) "Don't worry, Detox will arive." That was in 2004.

    Detox is never coming out.
  • Mortis
    Fucking dumb. Detox will NEVER come out. Drake will come out as a fag before Detox comes out.
    • I don't know about Drake
    • Chris Etrata
      There's one thing you forgot. Drake, Birdman, Wayne, Tyga, Rick Ross, Meek Mill, and Chief Keef will all come out to the world before detox does.

    Come on, Nelly. We all know you the topic was it possible to sell 15k on a major label, while you were a multi-platinum selling star like a decade ago. Oh, and about that cheap-ass, ugly, unfinished tattoo you had on your forearm. Shit looks like it has been made by some random homeless crackhead with a prison-made tattoo set ...
