Nelly Tells Us About Chris Brown’s ‘Mistake’
They’ve worked together on a new track…

Last year Brown was convicted of assaulting his then girlfriend Rihanna, after he attacked her in a car in February 2009.
But Hot N Herre rapper Nelly said he believes the 21 year old deserves another chance.
“I think it’s important to stand by any of the young people that make mistakes as a child,” he told MTV News.
“He was very young when he made that mistake.
“He made a mistake that grown men make every day, but yet we choose to condemn a kid we wouldn’t even give a chance to even rehabilitate himself and show he was sorry.”
The pair feature together on a song called Long Gone, which features on Louisiana man Nelly’s new record 5.0.
“I come from some what of a troubled childhood myself.. (and I’m) not by any means justifying what happened, you know. But you wanna lend a helping hand instead of a helping fist some times,” he continued.
“I think he’s a good kid, I think he’s very sorry for what he’s done. I think his talent is immense and over whelming. You know, I just hope people give him another shot.”
Nelly was in the UK this week to attend the MOBO Awards. His new album is released on November 15.
