Nelly Speaks About His Past Beef With Eminem

Posted By on November 30, 2010

     Nelly recently sat down and came clean about his past issues with Eminem, during the start of his career in the early 2000's, admitting the short-lived beef came from a misunderstanding. Nelly says he was very open to beefs back then.

"[Me and Em, it was] a misunderstanding. Me being young in the game. Somebody said something that said something, and I reacted to it. Being young to the game and being real influential, and not checking to see if that's what it was – which it wasn't. But me, being from St. Louis. Hothead. Young kid. I got kicked out of four schools for fighting. I was just like [to Eminem], 'What? Who? What'chu talking about?' Coming in at that time with Country Grammar, you're getting a lot of [beef], you know what I'm saying? But what people don't understand is that when I made Country Grammar, that sh*t was gangster! I was coming 'down down, baby/Your street in a Range Rover/With a street sweeper, baby/Cocked, ready to let it go.' You know what I'm saying? I didn't change that record. The label changed that record to 'boom boom/ahn ahn.'" (All Hip Hop)
