HipHopWired Featured Video

Already a multi-platinum rapper, energy drink mogul and clothing line executive, Nelly can now add fitness instructor to his list of accomplishments.

The St. Lunatic, will be the first VIP featured in a new line of workout DVDs entitled, Celebrity Sweat, coming out this fall. Featuring workouts taught by well-known athletes and celebrities the DVD will attempt to bridge the gap between popular culture and fitness.

Nelly who has always been active in the gym and in sports told St. Louis Today that since he began seriously working out, doing a fitness video has been an aspiration of his.

“I wanted to do it right, in a way that’s believable. It’s not like I’m a gym instructor, and I’m not trying to teach a class I don’t have a degree in. But I wanted to do something people could believe and follow.”

Ironically, Nelly dropped an album titled Sweat in 2004.

Celebrity Sweat is scheduled to be released on September 28.

The rapper is currently working on his fifth solo album titled, Nelly 5.0 which is reported to have features from Usher, Akon, Diddy and Janet Jackson.

As previously reported, pictures of Nelly filming his fitness DVD hit the net last week.
