A week after his new single "Lie" leaked, another new song called "Hold Up" from Nelly's long-awaited album "Brass Knuckles" has surfaced. Featuring T.I. and LL Cool J, the single carries "three different styles from two different eras with all confidence in one."
Featured guest stars to be lined up in the album include Ashanti, Pharrell Williams, and Stacy Ferguson aka Fergie. After several delays concerning today's tight competition, Nelly's fifth studio album has been pushed back for several times and later confirmed for release on September 16. Meanwhile, "Bay", a bonus track in the forthcoming album, has been featured in the first episode of "Entourage"'s season 5.
In another news, the St. Louis rapper is preparing to hit the road for a nationwide tour in support of his upcoming album. Starting on September 12, four days before the album release, the gig, allegedly named "The Brass Knuckles Tour" will take over Reno, Nevada. Then, the multi-platinum selling artist will travel throughout major cities including San Francisco, Dallas, Baltimore, and Washington D.C., before wrapping it up on October 8 in New York City.
