Your boy Nelly recently left the stage on fire at our recent iHeart Radio Music Festival in Vegas. And he was also trending following last week's Verzuz battle, when he walked across the stage to get to Ashanti. And in an interview the next day when asked if she'd get back with Nelly she said she wasn't available -- but that's another story.
Back to Nelly. The St. Louis rapper is everywhere these days it seems, and he is about to get his due props. Nelly will receive the I AM Hip Hop Award at the upcoming BET awards show. It's the top award of the event and he will be in the company of other recipients like Lil Kim, Ice Cube, LL Cool J, Lil Wayne, Snoop Dogg and Master P.
The BET Hip Hop Awards air Oct. 5 on BET. The best part of the show? Those cyphers man! Oh, and of course seeing who gets the I Am Hip Hop Award.
