In the weekly Saturday afternoon show starting November 6, the rapper will play the 'biggest and best urban music'.

Rapper is set to launch his own international radio show in November. The Grammy winner hit radio airwaves in his native St. Louis, Missouri in August, when he filled in for Hot 104.1 host Staci Static, while she was on maternity leave, and his stint on the show proved so popular he has signed a deal with Global Radio's Choice in London to host a weekly Saturday afternoon show beginning November 6.

According to a statement issued by Global Radio's Choice, the hip-hop star will play the "biggest and best urban music" in addition to a selection of tracks from his upcoming album, 5.0.

Programme director of Choice, Robert D'Ovidio says, "We're thrilled to welcome Nelly to the station. This is the latest in a series of exclusive takeovers on Choice as we continue to provide our audience with innovative and fresh programming alongside the urban songs they love."
