You always get that energy, you just want to be heard, to go out, do your thing and show people that we have just as much talent here as everywhere else.
Rappers make what’s in, in. If we want to bring back something like Jordache, we just say it and the girls start wearing it. We have a lot of pull.
I guess coming after ‘Country Grammar’ and everybody thinking, ‘Well maybe, that was it.’ To come back with something like ‘Nellyville’ and to have people accept it and appreciate it the way they did, that...
You never know until a song comes out and becomes what it becomes, obviously you can’t predict how the masses will react.
I never was the battle rapper. That was never my thing. I always felt like it’s enough room for everybody to do their thing. I like bringing new energy, re-inventing the wheel, so to speak,...
The fashion world has been great. We started Apple Bottoms about seven years ago; it’s interesting to be able to create something from your perspective, for your fans and support. It’s a little different for...
I try not to name too many labels – not because it’s not cool, but because it starts getting political.
To get the Nickelodeon award? That’s like ‘it.’ It’s one of the best. It’s definitely where you want to be in your career.
I’m not a big crier.
So many people appreciate what you’ve done, the doors you’ve opened, but some people realise they’re not going to be able to make as much money as they thought possible when you first started.

As you become a legend in the game, you build more doubters than you build supporters. And that’s fine. I think that comes with anything that’s challenging. I think it even comes with sports. The...
How many people out there really set a budget?
I won an MVP trophy with the St. Louis Amateur Baseball Association. I didn’t even start. I was a sub on this team. This was, like, an All-Star game where we had athletes from different...

I don’t believe in luck.
Strength of 100 men? I’d probably just get mad and hurt somebody and end up in jail. I think invisibility would probably be the best thing. I could be like, ‘You know what, let me...
I don’t believe in luck. I believe everything happens for a reason.
I love speed. I love racing cars, whether it’s on the streets or wherever. Don’t tell the St. Louis police, though.
I believe everything happens for a reason.
My nickname used to be Moses – still is Moses – for a long time, and people just call me Mo for short.
I think parenting these days is definitely different from when a lot of people grew up. As much blame as we give a lot of our kids for what they’re not doing… I also try...
