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.

Reports: Chante Moore Accused Of Financing New Album With Stolen Money

Published

on

Looks like Chante Moore has got some explaining to do!

The “Chante’s Got A Man” singer is being looped in a messy fraud and racketeering case that essentially led to two men claiming they were defrauded out of $3.6 million.

According to reports, the former “R&B Divas: LA” star knowingly accepted money that was fraudulently obtained by a criminal enterprise and using it to produce her latest album and artificially inflate her sales.

The two men are have filed a lawsuit and claim the defendants used some of their money to buy Moore plane tickets for her musical tour, lavish her with gifts, fund the production of and marketing campaign for her seventh album, “The Rise of the Phoenix,” and even to “pay off her significant personal debt.”

They also claim their money was used to open a hair bar in Georgia, and buy a house.

The plaintiffs say Moore knew the money was obtained illegally and the investments made into her career “were designed in whole or in part to conceal or disguise the nature, the location, the source, the ownership, and the control of the proceeds” of the alleged illegal activity.

It gets even messier though. The two men also claim the money was used to “artificially enhance” her album sales through iTunes purchases. Since they believe their money was used to “directly used to finance the launching of Moore’s latest resurgence effort with her new album, including all advertising and marketing efforts put forth therewith,” they believe they are entitled to any profits from the record.

If you’re wondering what Moore has to say about the situation, she is denying the allegations and wants the case thrown out.

Back in July we caught up with Moore who gushed about her new album and not feeling pressure to stay relevant in the changing music climate.
