Nelly’s Label Prepares To Release ‘The Longest Yard’ Soundtrack

In addition to

a costarring role in the upcoming movie "The Longest Yard," Nelly

is also scheduled to release the movie’s star-studded soundtrack through his

Derrty Ent. Imprint on Universal Records.

The St. Louis rapper

serves as executive producer for the movie soundtrack, set to release on May

17. The album features Eminem, D-12, Lil Wayne, Akon, Murphy Lee and also introduces

new Derrty Ent. artists Jung Tru and King Jacob.

The lead single

from the album will be Nelly’s Jazze Pha-produced "Errtime."

The soundtrack

complements the Paramount Pictures movie "Longest Yard," which is

a remake of a 1974 comedy of the same name.

The movie follows

an imprisoned pro quarterback, played by Adam Sandler, and his former college

coach, Burt Reynolds, as they try to

assemble a football team of inmates.

Nelly plays a convict

football player by the name of Earl Maggit. "The Longest Yard," also

starring Chris Rock, hits theaters on Memorial Day

weekend.

Nelly is also

preparing his nationwide "Sweat/Suit: Up Close & Personal" tour,

for which he has enlisted the help of Fat Joe, T.I., Murphy Lee, Ali and Kyjuan.

The tour kicks

off on March 19 in Cleveland, Ohio.
