As BET’s Real Husbands of Hollywood premiere quickly approaches and with season two of Nellyville not far behind, actor and hip hop superstar Nelly has signed a new deal with Fox. For his first project, the rapper joins Skip Bayless, Shannon Sharpe and Joy Taylor on FS1’s new sports-debate show Tuesday, Nov. 1 (9:30 AM ET), discussing the day’s current sports topics. The appearance marks the rapper’s new role as a contributing analyst to the show.
Joining this show launches Nelly into an elite group of less than five African American actors/musicians currently airing on three concurrent television shows.
“I can’t wait to reunite with my man Nelly,” says Bayless. “Seven years ago he was the first rapper we ever had on my former debate show, and he was a revelation. He can debate sports with the same passion, guts and clever creativity that he writes and performs his classic music. He and I share this: we think we’ve never lost a debate. Nelly was made for UNDISPUTED on FS1.”
“I’m really excited to join FOX Sports and work with Skip, Shannon and Joy to discuss all the sports topics I love,” says Nelly.
Congrats Nelly! Are you guys here for the Nelly and Skip Bayless collab?
