Spreading the word: Nelly vs. Kanye
St. Louis rapper Nelly, meanwhile, is doing his part to get the word out on what he considers equally important to universal equality: the power of the bling. Nelly's heading up a hip-hop summit in his hometown this weekend, called "Get Your Money Right," where he hopes to educate his young fans about the benefits of financial empowerment. The hot, youth-centric topics Nelly hopes to cover include credit scores and asset management. Nelly's not exactly the ideal candidate to espouse the virtues of money management. Recently, 50 Cent told the press that he was terrified Nelly's "bling addiction" was spiraling out of control. To quote Fitty: "If you're spending $5 million on diamonds, you's a damn fool."
