Yes, we understand that copy editing is to hip-hop what kryptonite is to Superman, but the errors on the album art for Nelly's Brass Knuckles are glaring (well, as least to our proofing-weary eyes). Check out track 10, a song called "Let It Go Lil' Mama" featuring Pharrell. There's no need to change the color and type size on the words "Lil' Mama," since the artist Lil' Mama isn't featured on the track. Also, for "Party People," track 6, the song is said to feature both Fergie and Nelly, which raises the curious question: how does someone have a guest appearance on his own album? These might seem like insignificant bones to pick, but sadly this is what most interested us about Brass Knuckles. Not even the Chuck D guest spot (nope, that's not a typo) on "Self-Esteem" is that notable. He basically does the same thing he did when he guested on Sonic Youth's "Kool Thing," playing the Flavor Flav role, but pro-blacker. Tell it like it is! Yeah! Word up!
