Album Cover: Nelly – ‘5.0’

Unlike his chest-baring cover for his last album Brass Knuckles, Nelly looks casual on the front of his sixth LP 5.0, pulling into stores November 16. Wearing a crisp white tee, a loosened belt on his denim jeans, and a pair of shades, the “Just a Dream” hitman stares off into the distance on the artwork for the album, named partially after his favorite car. “[The Mustang] 5.0 was always one of my dream cars,” he told Rap-Up.com.

The St. Louis rapper recently shot a clip for his next single, the Dr. Luke-produced “Move That Body” featuring T-Pain and Akon, and has lined up appearances on “The Ellen DeGeneres Show,” “The Tonight Show with Jay Leno,” “Jimmy Kimmel Live!” and “Chelsea Lately” during his release week.
