Nellie’s first impression of the bank itself?
“I thought it was a drug, man,” he said. “I mean, the picture was cool. This is the main thing you worry about. It’s like, well, how will the picture turn out? Because it is not a (non) color, or it is not a traditional promotional picture. But they did a great job. “
The Budweiser partnership continues a high-profile year for Nellie. “Country Grammar,” which put St. Louis’ hit hop on the national map with hits such as the title and “Ride Wit Me,” turned 20 earlier this year.
“The fact that it’s 20 years old, and the fact that it seems not so long ago, I mean, it strikes you a little differently,” he said. “But you are grateful that it has affected the lives of many people. You are grateful for all the joy and all the opportunities it has brought to people outside of people you even know. “
Currently, Nellie is also filming in the new season of “Dancing with the Stars” on ABC.
“It’s something that I knew would push me because I mean two left legs,” he said.
(In the episode that aired on Monday, the two left legs danced samba.)
