The King of the Midwest and the King of the South are teaming up for a project that will go down in history. In an exclusive interview for the Summer 2008 issue of Rap-Up, Nelly revealed plans for a joint album with T.I.

“We talked about doing a joint together, a whole album,” the St. Louis rapper disclosed to the magazine. “It’s not about just selling records for me anymore ’cause I’ve done that. It’s about making something that people will remember.”

The two chart-toppers are trying to recruit a third artist for the collaboration as well. They last worked together on T.I.’s “Show It To Me” off 2007’s T.I. vs. T.I.P.

The Country Grammar MC also shared his thoughts on his Southern friend’s run-in with the law, saying, “We all make mistakes. I’m not a judgmental person. I may not agree, but I’m not going to judge you for it because we all gotta be accountable and we all gotta take responsibility for the choices that we make. But be that as it may, I’m not going to stop being his friend because he made a mistake. I think that’s when you need your friends the most, when you have made a mistake.”
