Nelly Addresses Floyd Mayweather Feud, Discusses "Tip Drill"

Nelly on Floyd Mayweather: It's "hard talking to a guy who hasn't graduated from high school."

A feud has reportedly been forming between Floyd Mayweather and Nelly. Today (July 28), Nelly was asked about this purported beef with the boxer. 

"I don't have a beef with Floyd Mayweather," Nelly said in an interview with ESPN's Highly Questionable. "I think the whole thing is misunderstood. I try to understand where he's coming from, which is a little hard to do. But it's just one of those things. He is who he is. He's one of those people that I don't think likes the word no said to him. I think if anybody does that, that's what gets underneath his skin a little bit. But I don't know. It's kind of hard talking to a guy who hasn't graduated from high school." 

Recently, 50 Cent mocked Floyd Mayweather, saying, "Nelly took your lady, champ." 

During the interview, Nelly also spoke about his video for "Tip Drill," a cut off 2003's Da Derrty Versions: The Reinvention. When asked if he regrets the raunchy clip, Nelly said he views the video as an artistic moment in his life.

"I never regret being an artist," he said. "Being an artist, your responsibility is to create, to be artistic. I didn't do anything illegal [with 'Tip Drill']."

    Both Nelly and T.I. are slaves to them peoples thats why they act the way they do. Floyd isnt a slave to anybody and he dont take shit from them peoples. Them people get mad so they start that divide and conquer shit by recruiting corporate uncle toms like Nelly and T.I. to start shit. Floyd aint sweating this bullshit cause just like a certain few he can see whats going on and he not about to play they little stupid ass games!! Some of you seriously need to take a step and see whats going on and quit taking sides like you bout ride for one side or the other. The whole fucking thing is sad especially on Nellys part.

  • Rappers These Days

    The sad thing is, social media has these men acting like hoes. I understand woman acting like this in front of a camera. But dayum these rappers, CEOs, and so call legends in the game (and fuck no i ain't calling Nelly no rapping ass a legend)parade around on these social media outlets gossiping like hoes instead of actually putting in work in the studio. Shits crazy

    So Nelly only rolls with college educated goons??? LMAO Currency speaks louder than actions tho Nelly's a ho... he's real big on twitter and when he's in a different state, man to man with nobody else around he'd be copping pleas... fuck that fake band aid gay shit he be rocking... Floyd would give him a reason for some bandages

    • Magnificent

      I don't believe Nelly is referencing Floyd's "Education". What he means is that Floyd is grown ass man acting like a high-school bitch ass teenager. There is a difference between "HASN'T graduated high-school" and "DIDN'T graduate high-school". Past and Present tense.

    • But Still

      Them band aids was still still gay as fuck when he was wearing them.

    We should all feel sorry for Ms.Jackson because she left a hero to be with a zero... She sold her Bentley to make it what the freak, Nelly couldn't help her pay the insurance on it? I guess she's back driving a Hyundai... No Shade just truth

  • IROC

    I wonder if the public ever get tired of such bull crap like this these so call stars acting like bimbos this does nothing for nobody these guys are almost 40 grow up

  • NikkiG

    I'm from Stl, but Nelly looks grimy rte now. It's a sad day when Millionaires' spend their time spreading hate, he's with Floyd's leftovers, I guess Nelly can spend the rest of his money keeping up all that Plastic Surgery!!! I lost all respect for Nelly Moe.... The only reason so many people hate on Floyd because he isn't a shame to show black people they can live good an be proud of it... I forgot our brains or only programmed to watch white people live good, Like Trump, Hue and all those other child molesters. Floyd keeping living your life and let the haters hate on!!!

    • Really

      We are all with someone's leftovers! Well I take that back, there are a few who were with their first and only. So why is that even relevant?

    • Edubb

      YOU SPEAK THE TRUTH IM GLAD IM NOT THE ONLY ONE THAT CAN SEE WHATS GOING ON. Both Nelly and T.I. are slaves to them peoples thats why they act the way they do. Floyd isnt a slave to anybody and he dont take shit from them peoples. Them people get mad so they start that divide and conquer shit by recruiting corporate uncle toms like Nelly and T.I. to start shit. Floyd and sweating this bullshit cause just like a certain few he can see whats going on and he not about to play these little stupid ass games!!

    "It's hard talking to a guy who hasn't graduated from high school." He just shitted on 85% of the black community

  • Irv Gotti

    It's not like Mayweather is this great warrior.. He's fighting other little dudes his size and weight. And won't fight who most people consider the best in his class. He acts like he's a Spartan or something. He's a pussy. He would get wiped up from most average sized physically fit dudes. Shit even little Diego Sanchez would pummel this dude. Nelly would whoop that clown's ass.

    • WELLLL

      I know Floyd ducks fighters but I seriously doubt Nelly no rapping ass can beat him in the ring.

    • Horseshit

      He's a coward and refuses to fight the one person who he knows will actually whoop his ass. And the whole world knows it. Are you that oblivious?

    • Anonymous

      I don't like Floyd, but until somebody actually whoops his ass, your commentary is horse shit.

  • Not Impressed

    The funny thing is that Nas, Jay Z and a host of other high school dropouts drop more intelligent rhymes than Nelly. I'm not impressed.

    Nelly get your bitch ass out of here. If there was a Mount Rushmore for those who ruined Hip Hop. Your ass would be on it with that bama ass, only those who didn't graduate high school would listen to, "Country Grammar" song which was written on a 3rd grade nursery rhyme level. Fuck out of here. Between you issuing southern rap in, Master P and Puffy for selling millions with no talent and Ja Rule bringing in the singing rapper BS. You should just keep the money you robbed from people and STFU.

    • spontaneous 1

      Master P and Puffy have talent because they sold millions of records. You have to have talent and know individuals who have talent in order to sell millions of records. Master P and Puffy has been around for a long time and they are still relevant, so obviously they have talent. Ja Rule was not the first to start singing his raps. It was Bone Thungs-N-Harmony. On a recent interview for 106 & Park Ja Rule stated that Bone Thugs-N-Harmony is the inspiration for his style of rapping.

    LMAO.. the funny thing is it's not hard to graduate from HS at all, especially if your a dummy.

    • Anonymous

      Now that I think about it, that HS comment makes perfect sense. Mayweather does act like he's still in middle school sometimes.

  • Jersey

    The press just had their way with Nelly. If Nelly suffers repercussions from either the Tip Drill nonsense resurfacing(feminists, boycotts, endorsements) or The Mayweather Team then the Media gets to cover the fallout while making money in the process. Looks like Nelly needs an education in media training.

    Yeah, because graduating high school is such a crowning achievement. That's #SoStLouis.

      Graduating high school is an accomplishment specially if you didn't sleep, breeze or cheat your way through it and it shows assembly line (no disrespect to working folks), winos/50 baby mamas/daddys/ sounding like you are 3 years old when you are a grown ass man/woman vs taking the next step : university / your own business/stable family life/ be able to communicate better than the 'man'. Dumb fuck

      Good luck finding a job though qualifications/education or not. Also, lose the superiority complex, your "highly educated" life would at the very least be way less convenient withouth all these "morons"

      @g* "talk normal" great point there, bigot...

    • Anonymous

      Last I checked, hip-hop culture promoted education. You see rich rappers like Jay-Z or Juicy J giving money for scholarship. Unfortunately, some still believe that you have to be stupid in order to rap or be cool.

    • g*

      Also for the record, what are you CEO of friend? Because I can guarantee, it doesn't matter what "culture" you are, no one is hiring your uneducated ass with grammar like that. Guy 1: asjkcljsd Guy 2: What the fuck are you saying Guy 1: its my culture guy 2: why not just talk normal guy 1: because my fav rapper used this word klasdlkjsdvlk klsjdlkcvjsdf klsndvlkjsedvfklj and I'm a unoriginal uneducated sheep. jkaskjsac

      Hahaha, soooooo being white means you cannot have an opinion of HipHop? Being white means you cannot enjoy HipHop? Hahaha and I bet you (@CEO101 and Gotti) would be the first two bitches to cry discrimination if you were excluded from anywhere for being black.

    • Gotti

      STFU @aa This HipHop white boy.

    • CEO101

      It must suck to be a whiteboy commenting on a hiphop site and don't understand the terms in our culture. I forgive you.
