Nelly is putting the finishing touches on his first album in four years, Brass Knuckles, due June 24th via Universal Records. He recently shot a video for the Polow Da Don-produced first single “Party People” with Fergie in Los Angeles. The video was directed by Marc Webb (Fergie, Diddy).

Rap-Up.com can exclusively reveal that the album will also feature collaborations with T.I., LL Cool J, Chuck D, Akon, and Ciara, who is featured on the Jermaine Dupri-produced “Stepped On My J’z.” The track is a tribute to Nike Air Jordans, which Nelly describes as “‘Grillz’ and ‘Air Force Ones’ on steroids.”

“I love Jordans. I’ve been wearing Jordans since I can remember. Ciara loves Jordans and I thought it was a crazy fit. Ciara, J.D., and I are all from the Jordan era. The song is bananas! I can’t wait for people to hear it ’cause CiCi got busy,” Nelly tells Rap-Up.com.
