Nelly previously made cameos on VH1’s reality show T.I. and Tiny: The Family Hustle. He was also one of the mentors on the singing competition program The Next: Fame Is at Your Doorstep on The CW.

BET also ordered a new reality show featuring Keyshia Cole and another series with David and Tamela Mann from Meet the Browns and Tyler Perry’s Madea movies.

“These three shows are led by talent that our audience connects with but are also very different shows,” Charlie Jordan Brookins, BET senior VP original programming, told THR. “We’re excited about these new shows. What BET does is give the audience what they’ve been looking for.”

    Ill always be a Nelly fan. For me his music fell off a long time ago, but that country grammar sold like 9 million copies, people lying if they said they wasn’t bumping that. But ill pass on the reality mess, just ain’t me. We forget dude performed at the Super Bowl. Became a big star, just couldn’t hold it. Mostly because he just chased gimmicks instead of perfecting the craft. He got cake though.

    Instead of doing the show when you were with Ashanti, you do it with Floyd’s leftovers?

    BTW – Miss Jackson is a downgrade from Ashanti.

    Nelly managed to have a successful career and just as most rappers who can no longer be relevant he has involved himself in other areas of entertainment. A reality show is expected.

  • “The unnamed series will contain eight hour-long episodes” What….8 hours? that must be a typo.
