Weather The Storm
Nelly ultimately took a hard hit because of his location. The Missouri native reportedly dealt with bad weather around his area.
Severe weather in St. Louis didn’t stop Nelly and Ludacris from exchanging hits Saturday in the latest edition of Verzuz on Instagram Live. The two rappers were set to go live at 7 p.m., but repeated issues with a Wi-Fi signal on Nelly’s part caused delays and even lack of audio at times. St. Louis, where Nelly lives, was dealing with strong thunderstorms, winds and possible hail Saturday, according to the National Weather Service. (CNN)

I’m glad that our rookie class is the best class of our hip-hop era.” (HIGHSNOBIETY)
