Rapper Nelly was in NYC for a week-long promo tour to promote his new album, M.O. The album is basically a flop! M.O.is expected to move only 12k-15k in its first week. Is Republic Records the blame for the album’s flop? I worked there in the digital marketing department and they do not know how to market their urban artists. Nelly is a talented artist and his album should have at least sold over 100,000 in its first week.
During his promo run, Nelly appeared on BET, MTVand stopped by Power 105’s ‘Breakfast Club‘. He rocked a $550 PRSVR R.E.D. October Hoodielayered over a white tee-shirt with grey sweatpants and Air Jordan sneakers. This lambskin hoodie features rose gold hardware and branded drawstring.
Nelly appeared on BET’s ‘106 & Park‘ to premiere his new “Get Like Me” visual. While on set, the Grammy Awards winning rapper opted for a $350 PRSVR R.E.D. No Limit Tank which was designed as a leather tee-shirt with sleek lines and cut, the sleeves can be removed from this piece to turn itself into a tank top. Nelly styled his tank with black sweatpants and Air Jordan sneakers. Nelly’s seventh studio album, M.O.is scheduled to be released on October 1, 2013. The album features the lead singles “Hey Porsche” and “Get Like Me” Ft. Nicki Minaj and Pharrell.

Last night Sunday (August 11), music artist Nelly attended the 2013 Teen Choice Awards at the Gibson Amphitheatre. He also performed “Cruise (Remix)” with Florida Georgia Line. Before the main event, the “Get Like Me” rapper made a colorful splash on the blue carpet. He rocked a turquoise shirt which he styled with $500 PRSVR Tyson Quilted Shorts. These quilted leather boxing shorts gives a feel of vintage fashion blended with sport style. His outfit was completed with a pair of custom-made rainbow Nike Air Foamposite.
Leather was trending in the fall, and it carried over to the spring and summer. From the looks of it, leather will also be trending again in the fall. Leather tank tops, shorts, skirts, tee-shirts and crop tops are one of the hottest trends at the moment. Leather shorts can easily be paired with a dope tee-shirt and some cool sneakers. Bow Wow, T.I., Chad Johnson, LeBron James and Fabolous were all photo’d wearing leather shorts on various occasions.
