Oh wait, let us back up.
Multi-platinum rapper Nelly told Marc Lamont-Hill of HuffPost Live he was ready to kick somebody’s azz for messin’ up his opportunity to get a bone marrow donor for his dying sister, Jacqueline Donahue.
Nelly expressed his frustration with a group of protesters who boycotted his 2004 bone marrow drive at Spelman College due to the sexually explicit music video, “Tip Drill.” The rapper had planned the drive in support of his sister, who eventually died of leukemia in 2005.
And while Nelly has been mum on the college’s protest in recent years, Tuesday during an appearance on HuffPost Live, he revealed the one thing he would’ve done differently in retrospect to the demonstration.
“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 said to host Marc Lamont Hill. “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…”
