St. Louis' own Nelly will be joining the on-air team at the city's Hot 104.1 station starting today, August 11th! Nelly will take over the station's afternoon drive slot from 3pm to 7pm. The rapper will only be on air for a month as he's filling in for Staci Static who is out on maternity leave.

Nelly's close friend and cousin Michael Johnson was killed in his own home in St. Louis. Nelly took to twitter to say that news reports that claimed Johnson was his bodyguard were false.
