You may know Nelly for his bangers that still hit all these years later (ahem, “Hot in Herre”) or for his moves on this season of Dancing with the Stars, but now you can know him as the new face of Budweiser. There are all-new cans with his face on it, so if you’ve ever wanted to drink like Nelly himself, this is your chance.
The tall boy cans were made in honor of the 20-year anniversary of Nelly’s breakout album Country Grammar. He comes from the city of St. Louis and the Anheuser-Busch brand was founded there as well, making the collaboration a perfect ode to the area.

Each detail of the can has been altered a bit in honor of Nelly, with a portrait of him in place of the Budweiser logo and lyrics from one of his songs instead of the typical Budweiser creed. The lyrics are from the song “S.T.L.” by the St. Lunatics, a hip hop group that Nelly was a part of. The can reads: “St. Louis where we from, you ain’t never heard a weak one.”
In an interview with the St. Louis Post-Dispatch, Nelly talked about how much the collaboration means to him: “It’s a little overwhelming [to be recognized by a company as iconic as Anheuser-Busch],” Nelly told the paper. “But it’s really dope, and it’s what you work for, and it’s definitely something to live up to and something to continue.”
The special cans will only be available in St. Louis, which I guess means I’m taking a road trip. Who’s down to…ride wit me?
