Nelly has been proudly representing his hometown of St. Louis since he became famous, and he has been a calm presence and voice of reason since protests erupted a year ago in Ferguson.
Before his performance at The Frequency | Radio One‘s annual Urban artist showcase and music industry gathering The Blitz, Nelly spoke to EZ Street of WKYS/Washington, DC about how he’s helping give a voice to the people of Ferguson and St. Louis.
