Nelly Denies Ripping Off Slo’ Down
Nelly is brushing off allegations from former St. Lunatic member Slo’ Down that he ripped off his former associate. According to the Grammy winner Slo’ Down didn’t make enough money to be shortchanged.
“I wish I could have made ova a half a mill dollars for just wearing a mask on stage!!!!! loldammm,” Nelly wrote on his Twitter page. In a more subliminal tweet, the ‘Country Grammar’ rapper also blasted Slo’ Down for his lack of talent. “Hate ungratefulness pimp! U don’t write! Don’t rap!! U don’t even stay in the studio till the song is done! Still make a halfmil.”
As previously reported, Slo’ Down blasted his former crew member in a taped interview. “I might f— around and get emotional talkin’ about how all that money was getting split up,” he said. “S— was crazy … N—-s was eatin’ and I wasn’t one of them n—-s. I was snackin’ … I was lunchin’, havin’ lunch every now and then, and n—-s was havin’ four course meals and ain’t have s— to do with s—.”
Besides not getting paid what he feels he was due, Slo’ also alleged that Nelly used him for his own capital gain by unequally rationing out the group’s financing. “Whatever we did, Nelly got half of that s—, and the rest of the group split that up.”
St. Lunatics was founded in 2000, and although Slo’ never actually wrote or recorded any vocals, he was known for being a hype man for the group. Following the release of their gold selling debut album, ‘Free City,’ St. Lunatics members like Ali and Murphy Lee went on to find marginal success via their solo efforts. The group is set to drop their latest album, ‘City Free,’ sometime this year.
