The rapper who made putting Band-Aids on cheeks cool in the early 2000s is back at it again with another innovation. Hip-hop and classical music will converge on one stage when Nelly presents "A Night of Symphonic Hip-Hop" at the Broward Center for the Performing Arts on Thursday, Jan. 26. The singer, songwriter and two-time Grammy Award winner will perform hits such as "Hot In Herre" and "Country Grammar" alongside a 30-piece orchestra.
"I thought it would be a great way to cross-mixture fans," the 42-year-old says between reps at the gym during a phone interview. "Maybe help bring some fans to the symphony and help spread some symphony fans to hip-hop."
Nelly says he wasn't keen on the symphony idea at first. But after thinking about it for a few months, he said, "What the hell? Let's give it a shot."
