Nelly at the BET Awards on October 2 in Atlanta.
Nelly loves himself some bling. The rapper has worn it on every body part capable of being accessorized — including his teeth. But Nelly debuted some new bling when he showed up to the BET Hip Hop Awards with three necklaces with studded American Express credit cards hanging as charms on bold ball chains. There was the invitation-only Black card, a Gold card, and the Platinum card. While he’s a walking advertisement for American Express, it’s kind of awesome that he’s like “Hey world, rappers don’t always flaunt stacks of cash money. Sometimes, we use credit cards — multiple ones — and maintain very good credit scores. OK? Now back off. Thanks.”
