Rain Dollaz said:i thought he said my grandmothers name is MAUD YATES....YATES..
so i talked with tech yesterday at the meet and greet at red rocks and he told me that nelly is his actual cousin and that he was just getting his attention and letting nelly know about it. tech told me that no one has ever asked him about this and that he's glad there are Technicians catching and dissecting his lyrics.
