Nelly Cooking Up New Music With Dr. Dre

    You wanna take a ride wit me? Smoke an L in the back of the Benzy? Aside from being paraphrased lyrics from Nelly‘s 2001 hit, “Ride Wit Me,” these are also likely propositions put forth by the St. Louis rapper to recent collaborator (and Coachella headliner) Dr. Dre.  Apparently, the two got together late Monday night for a recording session, with Nelly having Tweeted the photographic evidence. Accompanying the Tweet he wrote, “WOW in studio wit the legend dairy @drdre.” And after catching wind of some criticism regarding the literacy of his Tweet, Nelly had this pretty funny response: “That’s how I wanted it dahhhhhh!!Wow is folks really that simple to trip off how folks spell shit on twitter its twitter not a turn paper!!”

    No real word on where the work with Dre will end up, but he did just drop a mixtape, O.E.MO, on Christmas Eve, so maybe this will find its way to Nelly’s studio follow-up to 5.0. [Rap-Up]
