THE LUNATICS HAVE TAKEN OVER NEW YORK

The hiphop star will appear at NV in New York...

US rap sensation NELLY is set to host a launch party for the forthcoming album by his old friends and band the ST LUNATICS in NEW YORK next week.

The star, who has already sold over seven million copies of debut solo album ‘Country Grammar’, will appear at NV on Wednesday (June 6), the day after ‘Free City’ is released in the US.

Despite his solo fame, Nelly has always maintained he is still a part of the St Louis outfit, and features prominently on the album. The title ‘Free City’ is a call to release currently incarcerated St Lunatics member City Spud.

The album will be released on June 25 in the UK, through Universal.
