8 Disappointing Rap ‘Comebacks’ (pg. 7)


The Rapper: Nelly

The Return: Four years after the universal FAIL that was the Sweat/Suit double album (SMH at anyone who bought this and got duped twice by Nelly!), the St. Louis rapper finally stepped out of the shadows to release his 2008 album, Brass Knuckles.

The Reaction: Here’s everyone who appeared on the album: Rick Ross, T.I., LL Cool J, Snoop Dogg, Nate Dogg, Usher, Keri Hilson, the St. Lunatics, Fergie, Chuck D, Akon, Ashanti, Ciara, Jermaine Dupri, Pharrell, Avery Storm, Gucci Mane and R. Kelly. (exhale) So, care to guess why this album didn’t work?
