A few years ago, Nelly also denied speculation he was one of many celebrities on steroids.
In 2008 a high profile drug dealer gave cops a list of celebs who he claimed were using illegal body building drugs and Nelly was one of them. "The only people who say that is people who don't work out. Anyone who goes to the gym knows what Nelly is doing is nothing," Nelly said at the time. (RadarOnline)

Following his opening-week sales, the rapper resorted to Twitter and aired out his frustrations.
"A record deal is a 50/50 partnership!As a artist its your job to provide the record company with music that they(record company)can sell! Thing about the partnership is that n the public eye the responsibility is not 50/50!the artist is always the 1who catches 90% of the blame." (Nelly's Twitter)
