The St. Louis Cardinals won the 2011 Major League Baseball World Series Championship last night with a Game 7 victory over the Texas Rangers.
As the devoted Cardinals fan that he is, St. Louis native and rapper Nelly took to Twitter to celebrate the Cards win all the way from China, Twitpicing a photo of him wearing a Cardinals hat, holding up his “1’s” for 11 World Series championships in the franchises history and encouraging fans to join in:
Prior to the game the rapper released a blog via XXLmag.com about the game saying:
Game seven is tonight! The moment of truth.
My team The Cardinals are at home going for the championship against The Texas Rangers.
After we Iost game five and were staring at elimination, I still had confidence that we could pull it off.
We have had an amazing run and like I said, I believe this group could pull it off.
Nelly spent a portion of his night retweeting Cardinals photos but he did take a minute to talk to Pharrell about working in the studio:
Well, congrats to Nelly and his St. Louis Cardinals, but we’re more excited about what Nelly Mo and Pharrell have cooking up in the studio.
Earlier this week, Nelly released a new Drumma Boy produced single, featuring T.I. and 2 Chainz. Take a listen to it below if you missed it.
