TONIGHT IS THE NIGHT SAINT LOUIS!!!! The “Verzuz” series brought to us by producers Timbaland and Swizz Beatz presents the battle the city needs: Nelly Vs Ludacris. Is this a St. Louis versus Atlanta battle? I think so; I believe this represents the turning point for music nationwide. Nelly and St. Louis was on top at the time; Nelly sold 10 million copies of “Country Grammar”, the St. Louis (now Los Angeles) Rams were world champions, we had Chingy, J-Kwon, Huey, Ebony Eyes, Murphy Lee, etc selling huge numbers. We were unstoppable. But after the mid 2000s the Atlanta music scene blew up and now they run the industry. But for us 30+ year olds these 2 represent some of the best times of our lives. Air Force Ones, oversized jerseys & jeans, headbands, cornrows & manicured toes. Hit for hit Nelly is the hit maker. Bar for Bar? Ludacris might have the edge. Im Pulling for the home team tho: SAINT LOUIS STAND UP!!!
