Last Saturday, in Phoenix, I had the opportunity to interview Nelly after a magnificent performance at Bud Light’s House Of Whatever Super Bowl party. I played a pretty funny game of “Would You Rather?” with the rapper, which will be published here on BroBible sometime next week. Stay tuned!

At the very end of our allotted 10 minutes, I asked him about a photo that’s legendary in Phish fan circles: Nelly and Phish frontman Trey Anastasio partying together after the Grammys circa 2002 or 2003, before Phish took a five-year hiatus, when Nelly was churning out hit after hit.

It’s a very silly question, I’ll admit that. But what can I say? I’m a Phish fan and was wildly curious, so I seized the opportunity to ask such a ridiculous question. Clearly Nelly has never been asked about anything related to Trey or Phish before, making for a humorous moment.

Here’s what Nelly had to say.
