Nelly knows that he sometimes catches flack for his more pop-oriented singles like his latest release, "Hey Porsche," and he addresses it during a recent interview with Yahoo! Music's The Aftermath. "It is more of a grander record, more of a cross-over, pop type of feel, but it's not the only Nelly on the album by far," he says. He boasts that the album also includes his long-anticipated collab with Nelly Furtado and explains why it has taken so long for the artists to record a track. While he doesn't have a song with Flo Rida on the album, he pays respect to the rapper who many have accused of stealing his style. The "Hot In Here" MC shares a humbling conversation he had with Flo Rida that earned his lifelong support. Plus, he talks his plans to create a sports talk show with Lil Wayne and offers an update on his new recording and engineering school, Ex'Treme Institute (E.I.).
