(9/23/2010) Grammy-winning rapper Nelly has revealed almost quitting rap in light of losing family members shortly after the release of 2004’s Sweat/Suit album. Although he has contemplated quitting, he has been busy with his Apple Bottom Jean company and new work out dvd.
According to Nelly, the passing of his sister and grandfather had a large impact on his lfe and career in the mid-2000’s.
“My sister passed in ’05 and 6 months later my grandfather died. All through ’06 and ’07 I felt that way. I didn’t know what I was doing. I’ve never experienced death with people that close to me. The more time you spend with someone that’s when it hurts the most. If you’ve been with people for 30 years and all of sudden they’re gone, it affects you more. I did come to a point where I wanted to quit. But I never showed it on the outside. People didn’t know I was f*cked up, but that’s on me.”
