Nelly recently spoke to his local St. Louis paper and ranted about missing the spot on BET’s Top 10 Rappers of the Century. Here are some of the quotes:

“It’s a weird feeling. For some reason, people want to overlook the things I’ve accomplished from 1999 to now.”

“We busted our asses, just to have people overlook it and downplay it. After so much success in the beginning, they wait for you to not succeed.”

“You can’t sit up there and tell us we didn’t stand up together for ‘Country Grammar. We got talent here. Don’t denounce the things we accomplished.”

That show was like over a month ago, right? Its over.
