Rap veteran Nelly has inked a new deal with FOX, under which he will join Skip Bayless on his sports-debate show, Skip and Shannon: Undisputed.
He joins Skip and co-host Shannon Sharpe and Joy Taylor as a new contributing analyst.
“I can’t wait to reunite with my man Nelly,” says Bayless. “Seven years ago, he was the first rapper we ever had on my former debate show, and he was a revelation. He can debate sports with the same passion, guts and clever creativity that he writes and performs his classic music. He and I share this: we think we’ve never lost a debate. Nelly was made for UNDISPUTED on FS1.”
“I’m really excited to join FOX Sports and work with Skip, Shannon and Joy to discuss all the sports topics I love,” adds Nelly.
His first appearance will be on Tuesday (Nov. 1) at 9:30 AM ET.
