Happy Birthday Nelly, here’s Wild Style!

Wild Style Mash-Up

Don’t mix up your Nelly’s, this is neither the elephant, nor the really weird female singer, who looks like she’d be a bit of a handful. It’s the rapper. He’s 35 today. Well, we say rapper – he sits somewhere rather unusual between rapping and singing, a bit like a one man Bone Thugs N Harmony. Not a compliment. Still, we thought we’d get him a gift, so we all put on full tracksuits, and sat on a wall discussing ideas, whilst occasionally glaring at passing cops. Pretty soon it boiled down to a toss up between a big carton of Ribena, or an excellent clip from a defining hip hop movie, with added beats. In the end we got him both. Happy Birthday Nelly!
