Album Cover: Nelly – ‘M.O.’

M.O.

Nelly stays fresh on the cover for his seventh album M.O. The St. Louis rapper rocks a camouflage and leather jacket as he stares down on the artwork.

The title is a play on his nickname and home state of Missouri. “It’s just Missouri. That’s where I’m from, Missouri, and a lot of friends and family call me Mo, so it’s similar as far as me still being where I am and being who I be,” he told TIME.

Due Sept. 30, M.O. features appearances from Nicki Minaj, T.I., Future, 2 Chainz, Nelly Furtado, Trey Songz, and Florida Georgia Line, with production from Pharrell, DJ Frank E, Detail, and Rico Love.

“They tried to jam me up in Texas on some bullshit/ Said I had weed, boy, and a full clip/ No, not me mane, I’m only lifting weight/ I ain’t snitchin’ neither, but I tell ya who’s it ain’t/ From ’99 until now I made legit figures/ If this was ’97, they mighta had a ni**a,” he raps.
