Nelly Calls Out Spelman Protestors, Tying Them To His Sister’s Death

Published

on

Nelly stated in a recent interview that the women at Spelman College are partly responsible for his sister’s death.

In 2004, the rapper attempted to hold a bone marrow drive to support his sister, Jaqueline Donahue who was dying of leukemia, but was protested by the women on Spelman College because of the extreme sexism in his “Tip Drill” music video. People have seemed to forget about this protest and Nelly has not talked about it much until a recent interview with Huffington post where he stated,

“The Spelman thing, the only thing I feel I would’ve did different is kick somebody’s ass…that’s just how it felt to me, Pimp,” he stated. “I don’t have my sister. And I doubt it if half of those girls are still campaigning for what they quote, unquote took advantage for that opportunity for.”
“You [protesters] robbed me of a opportunity. Unfairly, my brother. Because we could’ve still had your conversation after I got my opportunity, but it could’ve been somebody that was coming to that bone marrow drive that day, that was possibly a match for my sister. That didn’t come because of that…”

Nelly followed up by pointing out the hypocrisy of the protesters, “You’re not even probably protesting right now and half of y’all that was protesting, is probably in them clubs, dancing to them songs on the weekend that your protesting about”.

What do you think about this whole situation? Let us know in the comment section below.

    FYI that bone marrow drive did happen. It was postponed for a few days, while Spelman found different financial backing because Nelly pulled out. Almost 400 women come to the drive and donated the only thing that was actually cancelled was the concert. He lost his sister, I understand that hes upset.

All The Tears: Drake’s “God’s Plan” Video Is #GivingGoals

Published

on

It’s no secret that Drake’s been on a giving spree while in Miami. From college kids to hotel workers and everyone in between, the rapper has been changing lives one dollar at a time — and now we can see it all in action.

Clearly, it was “God’s Plan” for Drizzy to take his entire budget for his music video and spend it on various residents and workers in Florida’s hot spot city. That’s right almost a million bucks — $996,631.90 to be exact — was slotted for Drake to shoot the visuals for his latest hit but instead he used all the money to make a difference. And in doing so, he made us cry … multiple times. Just watch the video below.

In a statement the self-professed “6god” said this video was “the most important thing” he’s ever done. We’d agree.
