Nelly is teaming up with Jermaine Dupri and Trey Songz to reportedly work on a new television project that he has described as the male version of the popular daytime talk show, "The View."
Speaking to BV Buzz, Nelly says that project is currently under development.
“Not sure if you're familiar with the Ocean's 7 Crew,” Nelly said. “It’s me, Jermaine Dupri, Trey Songz, Johnta Austin, Brian Michael Cox and Tyrone “International” Davis. We're working on kind of like the male version of The View. We’re working on that.
“I'm starting to do more now, but I wanted to do stuff that made sense to me,” he continued. “I had a lot of offers and a lot of things that probably could’ve been cool, but I turned it down because I felt I wasn't ready yet. I never want to disrespect the culture and the thing that is acting, thinking just because I'm Nelly I'm going to transition and be good at it.”
This isn’t the first time Nelly has been working on a television series. Entertainment Weekly reported that the rapper was developing a variety series set in Las Vegas. He has not forgotten his music roots, however, as he is working with producer Jim Jonsin, Rico Love and Kelly Rowland on his next, as-yet-untitled album.
