Video: Nelly’s First Day on the Airwaves

Nelly stepped into his new role as host of “Nelly Radio” on St. Louis’ Hot 104.1 on Wednesday (Aug. 11). The hometown rapper is filling in for radio personality Staci Static, who is on maternity leave. His on-air run is expected to last for about a month.

Check out his first day on the job where he gets schooled on the dos and don’ts of radio, including being warned not to play the dirty version of a record.

To those who think Nelly’s given up his full-time job, he has something to say. “Just to be clear, I haven’t given up rap. I don’t know where that’s coming from.”
