Nelly Responds…

Rapper Nelly came for me on Twitter today in response to my post titled “Nelly Lashes Out at Nicki Minaj and Universal Records”. He tweeted: “Wtf is @sandrarose talking about? I did not lash out @nickiminaj! I am a fan and have nothing but respect and luv for nikki!”

I respectfully retract my earlier statement as it appears that I was given the wrong information. Nelly would never disrespect a female artist. He was in fact lashing out at Universal Records out of frustration due to his record sales, and rightfully so if you under ship and under promote your artists.

“No artist has control over another artist’s budget. Nor are they responsible for how a label markets their artist!!,” he tweeted.

    The execs have power to pull from one artist budget to go towards another who they have a bigger investment in. If Nikki was over budget the funds have to come from somewhere that was already forecasted during planning stages. Nelly got shafted, but his music isnt that great anyway. The label knew Nelly wouldnt break into the top 5 with his album, so why pumped money into a failing album? It has to be recouped, so when Nikki does well then Nelly will to.

    One thing that I never understood with many artists is that an artist getting signed to a major is a business relationship but it is dominated by the label. The label looks only at numbers at BDS, Mediabase, Soundscan, etc. and whoever produces gets favortism. An artist can dictate how a label will maneuver budgets. During my tenure at MCA I learned that labels will sign a gang of artists and these non selling artist will support the selling artists, budgets get shifted all the time.

    But back to the beginning. If I was signed to a major and get an advance or made a sh!tload of money, I would invest my own money in my own promotions team, my own marketing. Yes there are some restrictions but you can hire your own radio person to make sure you record will produce #’s so that the label will pick it up.

    Unfortunately, many artists do NOT want to spend their own money on things like that. They wait for the label to do it. If you are serious about yours then I won’t put my destiny in someone elses hand sorry

    I didn’t know black women didn’t support him. I probably only know two of his songs, does he diss woman in them? I don’t watch music videos, does he degrade them in his videos?

    Nelly Nel!! calm down soldier and fall back…Sandra Rose has intelligent readers boo…we know you weren’t lashing out at Niki…now breath. You should use that energy to pound the hell out of your computer mouse until your spell check works again….Now that’s the real issue.

    I think majority of black women with morals stopped supporting him during Tip Drill, he was even banned from performing at a black college.
    For me, he has nothing I want to hear…..

    LMAO @ Black women not supporting Nelly!! C’mon with that mess. Alot of women (black/white/latina/asian) whatever claim they don’t support an artist whenever he has half butt naked women dancing in his video, but at the same time those are the same women that damn near drop their drinks and push you over to get to the dance floor and “drop it low” while reciting verbatim EVERY lyric in said “bytches and hoez” hot song of the week.

    nellys right, and i knew the “nelly mad at nikki” was a outright lie anyway. nelly is frustrated but nikki has nothing to do with it

    ImSuchaLady says:

    darkflava, you forgot that some of them will also throw their panties at the artists. I know ya’ll remember Tyrese being on the stage and not being able to see him through all of the panties.

  25. 25
    kdillon says:

    Thats another thing, I never understood the throwing of the panties…. I mean, the artist doesnt know who threw them. (I almost threw up)

    spongebobfan says:

    How long ago was tip drill? goodness people…
    also isnt nelly motown/universal and nikki youngmoney/universal

    Im sure they are clean panties I mean all the women wear skirts and pull off used panties :hurl: I hope not

    kdillon says:

    I think thats the point of the used panty throwing, the scent (ewwww). Throwing clean panties are pointless, and are they carrying the clean panties in their purses?

    And if they are…..WHY? What horrible childhood incident encourages you to want to do that.

    ..I don’t know about you…but if I see a female with a pair of underwear in her purse…I assume she’s on her period.

    kdillon says:

    @Choco
    I think they are used (lol)! SMH

    You guys have effectively killed the sexiness of the panty throwing tradition…

    kdillon says:

    … so I think we can all agree that the panties that are being thrown are used. Thats why Drake looks like Mask, he is always getting dirty panties thrown in his face and taking long deep breaths.
