kaiser report on our. larry king now nellie's back is there anyone whose opinion you respect with regard to you this is just some of your family some of your friends i get their input perspective and put enough to know if this show going to job in the a little bit. would you rather have been a major league baseball player than older than being movie artist well first let me say that i always believed that everything happens for a reason so there was no way i would change you know my life in the way shape form or fashion now to go back to that is to say if i knew a rod was going to get two hundred fifty six million dollars yeah i would have played baseball plus what is the name of the third baseman in abacus tells classic who's on first baseball sketcher team cleary i don't know is that your answer yes because that's correct i don't know who was on first what was on second why don't you know unfair when it comes down i wasn't even thought about what happened to that fellow that was judged to let you go he got. all next on larry king now.
11:01 pm
welcome to larry king our special guest is nelly and i don't need to say it's getting hot in here if you don't know who he is he's the third highest selling artist of the past decade responsible for some of the biggest hit pop hits of visible any m and now he's back at it with his seven studio album called mo now we also stars in the real husbands of hollywood on be the second season premier october fifteenth real husbands of hollywood airs tuesdays at ten pm nine central thank you for coming to larry king no thank you for the album is titled as m.o.o. pronounce mo that is your nickname that's my nickname obviously it's also the
11:02 pm
abbreviation from from where i'm from missouri and it's also my method of operation so meaning meaning so it's kind of like me being me representing wound from and doing it my way all at once and in mobile business not in one i just be moved rather than mentally. well i mean a lot of close family friends they do call me most so i mean you know you can call me monet or you can go me will you go home you know i'll wrap oh what would you name me if you were rapper. m. c l k m z o j i like the only house is different from previous ones. obviously it's my seventh album you're talking about fourteen years and in the entertainment business which is an eternity for any part of this business so i feel really privileged to do that and you know it's more about maturity it's about trying to reinstate myself back into the music scene i've been away for like three years as far as dropping albums because i've been doing so much t.v. and all that so it's kind of like reinstated myself so i'm trying to bring
11:03 pm
a fresh new sound a fresh new this is a hip hop or rap it's everything it's everything it's hip hop based has some rap on it some some of what nelly does is be more melodic but it has everything one of the songs intrigues me ok maryland massachusetts maryland massachusetts what is that it's two different states right well it's more of a nickname as far as me myself being something for being something for a young lady let her know i am her marilyn massachusetts i have a she wants to pronounce i've got a baby you love the music scene for you're doing television right you think this can go to number one if you tell me it will i'll believe you but how is the music game changer changes so yeah at the end of it you know i think the internet has drastically changed not just a music industry just changed life everything and everybody around it so with that being so excessive all you have to find new and creative ways to bring your music to the forefront because now you're getting so much music that's being put out all
11:04 pm
at one time you know it's only twenty four hours in a day a radio can only play so much music but you're getting so much music at one time via the internet that is kind of hard to you know make your way do you write your own song yeah yeah i do write all my. own songs i do collaborate with other writers as well though it's kind of hard again doing seven albums and being fourteen years to to keep coming up with so many creative thoughts but when you work with great. produces and great songwriters you usually get just an illegal or do you just want to do when you finish a song is the really when you try it out on is there anyone whose opinion you respect with regard to your music. probably just the people around you you know just some of your family some of your friends i get their input i respect them put enough to know if this shucking and jiving me a little bit. you know if they just try to. yes man me to death you know do you think you've gotten too critical respected you deserve how have you been
11:05 pm
treated critically i think by my fans i've been i've been treated you know unbelievable i think sometimes by the critics sometimes when you know when they don't understand your philosophy on how you're trying to be perceived in your goal i think sometimes that lacks in the department of them basically giving you the credit that you deserve but again as long as i'm still here as long as i'm still making music eventually i think people who see the light those critics who rap you were the i don't know you know that i think is the point of how i do it you know when i first came out i was one of the the first rappers to really bring a lot of melody and melodic feel to my music i wasn't the first but i was one of the ones to do it on a larger scale so you know everybody in hip hop and everybody in rap don't agree with that all the time they wanted to be one way how do we define hip hop lifestyle hip hop as a lifestyle hip hop as a lifestyle rather a musician no no no no hip hop is a lifestyle rap is
11:06 pm
a part of hip hop as well as dressing as well as graffiti as well as dance. hip hop is just it's it's everything around you as opposed to how you carry yourself and what it is that you do do you ever try or want to do other forms of music. other forms of music i don't know as for as doing whole albums and then form as you can see i've collaborated with a number of people country artist tim mcgraw obviously the florida georgia line song has been real big this past year so i respect it enough to know that i can't do a whole country album because i'm not a country what do you sing with tim mcgraw heard of that there was a country song he didn't sing rap very well no no no tim didn't rap tendon rap not not on the record now he's eating he did some rap in the studio tonight we record because we have a little fun but i promised him i won't play that like working with him i like working with him cool because he brought fave to the studio it was awesome. betty
11:07 pm
are you married no sir no sir you do well in the department of boys and girls or you know him. but. i would imagine with. girls girls there let's be clear speaking of that and house you are no slouch there you go there you go that's my own version. you do a lot of collaboration's i do i love collaborating while i love because i love i love. i love to be involved with other artists that take music as serious as i take it i love to combine and i think that's the best thing about being an artist is to make people like what they don't think that they would like if they heard the suggestion like i suggested to you i'll go do a record with tim mcgraw you first this is like watching what exactly but then when you hear the record and you're like wow you see i think that's what being creative is i think that's what really being an artist is and bringing it to life well i
11:08 pm
don't have an agenda so i'm open to anything ok what's your songwriting process how does it work to my songwriting the songs do i'm always thinking i'm always writing you sit down at a certain time as i'm going to write songs you know sometimes a lot of times it's just about life just what it is that you're going through how you. carrying yourself things you may see things may be involved other people's experiences as well as mt st louis rough town to grow up and. not really rough not really rough it's tough i think the neighborhoods are tough but silas has it's great points definitely but it's summer's around bearable. it's all distancing blues it's humid it's very humid very humid ninety degree weather for like one hundred three degree weather and one hundred thirty degree weather you better not even go outside or did it is a rough there's a tragedy in america we have more prisoners than any country in the world and black men a disproportionate represented in our prisons in fact a quarter of the world's inmates are prison in the united states why do you think
11:09 pm
that is one i think education is very important also think self-esteem is very important and i also believe that hope is very important and i think in a lot of these communities we lack all three it alls we lack the education we lack the employment and we also lack the hope that we can do it a lot it's a lot easier sometimes to give up than it is to stay focused so in a lot of the situations that we do have we it takes all of us and when i say all of us it takes the whole country to build us up out of a situation something like that is not just about that community is not about this community it's about all the communities coming together drugs are a big problem and drugs are a huge problem i mean drugs are his problem anywhere to lead drugs or drugs so a lot of people in prison are there for drug use and selling yeah that's true as well that's true as well but. i still think it's a little bit bigger than just drugs if you go back to st louis much i live in silos
11:10 pm
you know you still live there sir i still live there i'm not going anywhere it's my home it's the home of the world champion soon to be saying those core laws that i love give you seated with me you recently spoke about the government shutdown what is your thoughts on what i just feel that the shutdown i feel that we do we should have to pay taxes i mean if i pay taxes go to pay the government if they're not work in should we get some type of rebate i mean us. and some type of refund i think for as long as they've been out for those three weeks everybody should get some type of refund for those three or four weeks i have a loan they want to stay out if that happens they can stay out for all you. uses of than we're used to you voted for obama but that he should be republican because of his income i should be republican oh you just i in carson i definitely a no no no no not obama do you think he's doing i think he's doing well for the job
11:11 pm
that he was handed you know it's always easy for people like the armchair quarterback they're sitting at home like you know why did you run net play or why did you do that no one knows the job it's only what is it a forty fourth president you got all of forty three other guys that can say it they know what that feels like and so walk in their shoes exactly exactly did you play baseball as a kid yes or are you good very good. did you have been a pro i was in a few pro camps. i was actually in a braves triad camp with ryan howard first baseman for the phillies it was me him and another guy friend of ours by the name of reggie would only three black guys that as our member and you know he was hitting the ball a ton then and we were doing our thing and then it comes back to that summer of st louis you know baseball is in the summertime when you get the summertime of st louis you know a lot of my friends were heading out ready to have fun in. would you rather have
11:12 pm
been a major league baseball player than more than being movie artist well first let me say that i always believed that everything happens for a reason so there was no way i would change you know my life in no way shape form or fashion now to go back to that is the say if i knew was going to get two hundred fifty six million dollars yeah i would have played baseball. did you go to a lot of kartel games is a good mom my mom actually she took me to my first corners game when i was about. six or seven she actually taught me how to play baseball my father doesn't have an athletic bone in his body but he is still a car. he could use that a jacket. he could break down a car roof but you know not athletic at all but my mom taught me how to play kid she taught me everything that went along with it in baseball the man thing why don't we see more black players in the game i think because first of all i think baseball has to do a better job of marketing and marketing towards you know the inner city in getting
11:13 pm
the word out to get the r.b.i. program yeah that's it's something you know it's something this but and again you have to make their presence felt also outsourcing you know outsourcing it's kind of like why we get a lot of our goods made in china instead of getting a made here in the u.s. you know it's a lot more expensive to get a made here in the u.s. as opposed to getting the made over there so it's the same thing i think with baseball if you can get the same type of athlete out of some of these other countries and pay them half the price just because you know that they're looking for much much much much better situation than obviously you want to do that is one to go about cardinals the best fans yeah they know the game they support the team they don't boo now well no no no really you see the blood not not our own team europe but you know a lot of fans booed philadelphia they book over cancer. she was there really south
