This is your third time on stage with Taylor Swift. How did you guys hook up originally? Robert, a guy that she works with, is a real cool friend of mine. We've done a lot of work together, over the past years, with like 'N Sync and things like that. That's my man. And then I met Taylor and her father and her mother, and they're just some cool people. She's like a little sister, man, she straight. I've been knowing her ever since she's been on. She calls me whenever, it don't matter, I'll knock it out for her.
How does that phone call happen? Just, "What are you doing on Tuesday?" "Yo, we're coming to St. Louis, will Nelly be around?" A couple of times, they flew me out to come wherever she was performing. I think one time it was in Houston. And, you know, the girl's fuckin' loaded, she sends her own plane to come get you and shit, so it's not a biggie. [Laughs.] It's a drop in the bucket for her, you know what I mean? It's a cool relationship. Before it's all said and done, man, she could possibly be top five females of all time. As a matter of fact, I know she will.
So wait, what is her plane like? Is it awesome? [Laughs.] It's a jet, man. She ain't got it all doily-ed up and nothing like that. It's better than the one I don't have.
When did they work out the choreography? When I went in earlier that day, when we talked and she was like, "Me and the girls were up all night choreographing this. We did our own choreography, we're going to kill this, Nelly." [Laughs.] She's just a dope person. She ain't got no ill wills or nothing like that, and that's kind of hard when you come from where we come from. You rarely come across those type of people. It's kind of like, Taylor Swift and my granny. Who doesn't love both of those people?
Did they show you the choreography before you performed it? Yeah, yeah, it was hilarious. I loved it, man. And the girls, Haim, they're just as energetic. It made me feel . . . just a tad bit old. They were like, "I can't believe we're gonna rock out with Nelly. I cannot believe it."
