Nelly recently confirmed rumors that his upcoming new album would be called "5.0" explaining where the name came from. "It's a lot of things. It's also my fifth drop date. It's just the energy of it all. [The Mustang] 5.0 was always one of my dream cars. As soon as I had enough money to buy one of these mothaf*ckers, they stopped making these sh*ts. It was just like, 'Ahhh!' You know in Menace II Society when he jacked that ride? And then they came back… That was like the ultimate scene. I always wanted one of them mothaf*ckers, money green. But when I got a chance, they stopped making them. I had this meeting with Ford where they asked me these random questions about cars and I just got to talking it up. I was like, 'Why ya'll ain't brought back the 5.0 Mustang? That sh*t was hot!'"
