Nelly 'Inspired' By Mariah Carey
The rapper talks about why he got back into the music game…
US rapper Nellyhas opened up about the reasons behind his return to the music scene.
Apparently, R&B singerMariah Careywas his main inspiration to get back in the booth.
He told Contactmusic.com:
"Look at Mariah Carey. She has a little break. People look at it like it's over. They have to throw dirt on her.
"Then all of a sudden, she's the biggest thing to hit the stage again. Even bigger. You see what I'm saying? I think that happens. So when you look at it like that, you've got to apply yourself."
The Just A Dream hit-maker also went to talk about his album 5.0 and its 'poor' sales:
"I feel like, if people want to count me out - which I don't know how you would count a guy out with 30 million records sold - then okay, I'm going to use it to my advantage.
"I just felt that, since you don't want to acknowledge me, or if you want to act like I don't exist then good, don't check for me. But you will eventually hear from me - and it works better that way."
