Nelly recently compares his Tip Drill video with Halle Berry’s Academy Award winnig sex scene in Monster’s Ball. Via SOHH:

“You look at Essence magazine, and they wouldn’t put a rapper on the cover. They wouldn’t put Nelly on the cover of Essence. Why? I don’t know. Would I like to do it? Of course I would. Why not? You wouldn’t put me on the cover because of the ‘Tip Drill’ video … that’s probably your main focus. But yet still, you put Halle Berry on the cover. She’s had a 15-minute sex scene with some white guy in front of a couch … I mean you can’t tell me that ‘Tip Drill’ was worse than watching that sex scene between Billy Bob (Thornton) and Halle Berry. You can’t tell me that. That was longer than four or five minutes. You feel what I’m sayin’?”

    I feel what nelly is sayin and that there is some truth to it.. IMO the whole “tip drill” thing was a bad look for him because it made him seem like a wannabe because if u look at his career in the begginning he was a more “wholesome rapper” so to speak he went from country gramma e.i…..to tip drill?

    Nelly is stupid. Many movies are made with sex scenes but it’s not degrading to women like nelly’s videos are. He’s so ignorant.

    he needs to sit down somewhere with his wack ass.

  • i know but..

    while it is true she had that scene with him..it was fake. none of the sex scenes in hollywood movies are real, or very few of them. Nelly was degrading in his video, but at the same time the girls let him do it so i dont place all the blame on him.

    “Nelly was degrading in his video, but at the same time the girls let him do it so i dont place all the blame on him.”

    Exactly. I cosign with you.

    Another rapper trying to use that tired excuse to promote their GARBAGE “music”. The movie wasn’t about her getting it on with Thornton and that lasted no longer than 4 mins. Second BODY DOUBLE!!! Third: How can you compare her role in the context of that movie to him disrespecting women by OBJECTIFIYING THEM!!


    I’m tired of rappers like him trying to find loopholes to justify their disgusting muisc. GO BACK TO THE HOOD HOMIE!! ONLY REAL ARTIST ARE NEEDED ON THE RADIO AND TV SCREENS!

  • nahnah

    he has a point. while i have no idea what he’s talking about regarding his music/movie, that monster’s ball movie was extremely sick, degrading, and uncalled for.

    she loses everything she had, and who rescues her? some racist hick. sorry, that movie WAS degrading.

  • closetcolumnist

    point blank nelly was wrong for further exploiting black women and embarassing our race the SAME WAY halle was wrong for fu**ing that crakkker on film for an oscar.

  • http://fu@gmail.com me that's who


    hello is name is COR-NELL…corny nelly….lmao i bet that was his nickname in skool..

    ^^^^^you shole’ right bmama you stay dropping knowledge cause i never would have put 2 and 2 together like that lmmfao corny ass……he should have been like TI and came up with a whole nother name for his ass….

  • FiyahCrotch

    Personally I found Halles’ sex scene and Nelly’s Tip Drill video and lyrics degrading to women!

    Body double or not, Halle should have demanded that there only be implied sex, meaning see some pants dropping,s ome kisses and then flash to morning w/2 adults under the cover waking up. That sex scene added nothing to the movie and I found it degrading to Halle..PERIOD.

    Nelly, Nelly, Nelly, ya’ can’t have ya’ cake and eat it too babe! You can either swipe credit cards up women’s asses or be seen as a respectable young brother, but both ain’t gonna happen.

  • http://fu@gmail.com me that's who

    notchavelli….what up dawg….

    ….and who big nasty ass is that nelly got his face so close to?????

  • Jauron

    Halle looks better than the broads in the tip drill video though.

    No Nelly, I don’t feel what you’re saying

  • elle

    Personally, I am not a fan of Halle Berry’s acting.

    But I don’t see how acting a part in a movie is the same as making videos swiping credit cards between a woman’s buttocks is in the same genre.

    Also, what has Nelly done to be on/in Essence?Even though Essence magazine lacks certain qualities in a whole.

    (Not downing Essence)

    I can see Essence interviewing him when his sister became ill, other than that what reasosns?

  • FiyahCrotch

    I wish the whole music industry would do an about face! No matter how much intelligent women boycott, it is gonna take the men of the AA/Hispanic community to really drive a change. Until these rappers stop glorifying naked booty, strip clubs,gangster lifestyle, cheating and baby mama syndrome then that is what we will continue to see!
