When rapper Nelly first appeared on the scene, his down south country boy swag was evident. A fresh pair of white Air Force One's, a NBA sweat band and his signature white band aid set him apart from many other rappers on the scene in the early 2000s. Over the years, Nelly has refined his style, and has become an edgier, classier southern gentleman. As we wait on the release of his new mixtape Scorpio Season to drop later today, let's celebrate Nelly's 38th birthday!!
