*It looks like Nelly is ’bout to put his rappin’ skills to good use for his new job. He’s been appointed the new afternoon drive-time DJ at a St. Lois radio outlet.

According to program director Mickey Johnson, Sir Derrty will pull the 3-7pm shift at urban station Hot 104.1 (WHHL-FM). He’ll be filling in for Staci Static, who is on maternity leave.

Station executives expect Nelly’s on-air stint to last for about a month.

Johnson says the station wanted someone with star power. In addition to playing music, Nelly will conduct interviews.
