Nelly's favorite tech toysGrammy Award winner and multi-Platinum artist Nelly talks with the OMG Insider's Kevin Frazier about the gadgets that he can't live without.
-What kind of technology do you like to use? Like, what are the things that you can't live without? -Well, I think-- I don't think anybody-- I mean, it's kinda hard to be on the road without your-- without your laptop, without your Mac. -Right. Right. -You know, I think that's-- I think that's probably the hardest thing to do outside of your phone. -Yeah. -You know, we do have our portable Pro Tool Series. -Right. Sure. -We keep our Canon, you know, just in case we wanna make a video. -Do you shoot a lot of stuff when you're on the road? -Yeah. We shoot-- We shoot anything, you know. -Really? -Yeah, we just shoot anything. Some of the stuff that you're just putting out to go viral and you're just-- -Right. -reaching out for your fans and you just touch them. Yeah. Mostly everything comes off the Canon. -Oh, man. You set it out. You got a little popcorn, a little lemonade. -Yeah. I try to act like I have some manners, man. -From his laptop to his camera, these are just a couple of the rapper's tech must haves on the go. Now, these are a few of your favorite tech gadgets. I wanna start with these headphones. Right there. -All right. -I mean, these are a little ridiculous. What-- Would it-- -You know what? I actually got, you know, turned on with these when I was in Dubai. I was coming through, you know, the terminal and all that and I needed some new headphones. My headphones got messed up and I saw them and I-- Actually, when I first looked at them, I was like, "Oh, look at these. These are probably a piece of crap, right?" -Uh huh. -And then I put them on and I was like, "Holy." Yeah, I was like, "Yo." And I took them off and I was like, show them to my brother like, "Yo. You gotta hear this." He definitely liked, yo, the sound in these are incredible. Just trying-- -[unk] diamond clear-- - They were about $300. -Oh, wow. Okay. -They were about $300. -[unk] to you too. -And then-- -Of course, Macbook. -Yeah. -You have-- You have your Macbook. -Yeah. Yeah. I'm not-- -You gotta-- Yeah. -I'm not the first nor will I be the last to need a big Mac. -Uh huh. -You know-- And so, right now, I do a lot of my music on here because, you know, we're finished-- We just finished up the album. -Sure. -So you know, I did a lot of, you know, organizing the sequence, checking out different mixes and things of that notion. -Billy's camera of choice, when he's shooting video on the road, the Canon 7D. This is what I try to tell everybody. This is the new standard. -That is the new standard. You do everything with that. That Canon, you know, family music videos, you can do everything with that and it-- that-- We shot a bunch of viral videos, just in-studio videos and things like that with that camera there but you can do anything with it.
