'Real Husbands' Nelly on lack of female hip-hop stars - 'It shouldn't be' harder for females

nelly-getty-st-louis.jpgOn Monday (Oct. 14), "Chelsea Lately" welcomed Nelly, who was asked about the lack of "vaginas" in hip-hop by the guest host Loni Love.

Nelly says, "I agree, I was just saying that like last week. I don't know. It is definitely harder for females in this business -- it shouldn't be, but it is. But they have just as much talent, just as much creative ability, as anybody else to make great music, so I don't know."

He also says that he loves still living in his hometown of St. Louis even after becoming a famous musician.

"I just didn't want to just be 'from it.' The success that I've had, it grew out of that city. My mind came out of that city, my love of music came out of that city. What I do is for that city.  ... I felt like if I leave, the light that's on me leaves with it and that light needs to stay there and shine because we got a lot of talent there," says Nelly.

His new album, "M.O," is out now and you can watch him every Tuesday night on "Real Husbands of Hollywood" on BET.
