Tell 'Em Why You Mad: The Nelly & DMX Edition

Nelly hit up a radio station recently to do promo for his upcoming Brass Knuckles album. But some kind of way the conversation got thrown to his controversial "Tip Drill" video. And Nelly went off on the lady radio host. Check it out above. And did anybody else get slightly turned on by his forcefulness? Maybe I should have kept that to myself... DMX has officially lost his damn mind. He cursed out the Miami court judge today while he was facing his sentencing...or something. i can't really keep up with his Olympian style wrap sheet. He said, and I quote, "I ain't going back to no f*cking jail!". Peep the video for yourself:

I just want to know if he growled afterward.

ok . as a female AND a

ok . as a female AND a SPELMANITE i have to say that all of us DO NOT feel that way . i think it was VERY stupid that Spelman wouldnt let him come speak and educate and raise money or whatever it was that he was tryna do because of a video that he made . this is an issue that im really pissed about because i feel like nobody is putting a gun to these video chicks heads and telling them to shake their asses on camera or whatever whatever ... like he said ... he did a service to those women looking for work . BOTTOM LINE

I think the real problem with

I think the real problem with what Nelly said is that he never once acknowlegded that it is degrading to have women in his video play the typical and in this case even more extreme, role of sex object willing to please and do anything for their male counterpart. So many people were offended by that video, and even if some of you weren't the fact that he doesn't sympathize in the least with why it is offensive is disturbing. Listen we all know that females in rap videos are almost always cast just to shake their ass and entice the willing audience. We know that the women who auditioned for this probably knew what they were agrreeing to but the question is does that make is less offensive and insulting? I mean if a white man paid a brotha top dollar to act a fool and reaffirm negative sterotypes about black people is he wrong for doing it even tho the individual agreed to it? Lets think of it in a different light. People will do almost anything for money. When you lure folks with money you might get them to do some pretty low skeezy things but in some way you might also exploit them. Nelly is a superstar millionaire, and although these women may have had no problems doing the video, he had all of the control in it. All of it.

Damn, 3 years after the fact

Damn, 3 years after the fact & people still wanna mess with the man over a damn video, I'm pretty sure Nelly did'nt force those sisters 2 do the things they did in the Tip Drill video, in fact it's kinda ironic that Nelly got all that flack over the video from females who @ the same time were probably supporting & defending R. Kelly when his "video" was leaked. Damn, the brother apologized enough times already, let it go. I agree with Kitty, the "educated" sisters need 2 realize that the sisters in the video R ADULTS!!!! let them be held accountable 4 their actions, & honestly they should be ashamed 4 disrupting something positive like a bone marrow drive 2 protest what these grown women CHOSE 2 do, 2 this day, I feel that was very inconsiderate & definitely not the time nor place.

[quote comment="184724"]And you know, I usually don't give a damn what people think about me (black women) but you know, with some of your opinions on the Nelly situation, I know a lot of people would consider black women dumb and worthless. Yes, its that serious. Yeah, its the women signing up to be in the videos but no matter what ya'll say, they represent us. And seeing that they mean nothing to you and you are praising Nelly like he is God, that shows a lot. And for all you saying theres nothing wrong with the video (16 year old chick who called it softcore porn like it was cool) I suggest you get God in your life.[/quote] lmao i do not think soft core porn is cool but it's the truth (though i have male friends who say that when uncut was still on they just muted it and watched it like free porn...that's probably TMI)..and i have plenty of god in my life who allowed me to be honest enough to say it in the first place :) So once again i do believe Nelly is kinda wack but people are defending him because he isn't the cause of this problem and bringing the video up just separates us even more cuz i'm sure we all have more important things to worry about in our own lives

[quote comment="185228"]I’m not offended by Nelly sliding a credit card down that girl’s ass because guess what? SHE GOT PAID FOR IT. All those women in that video knew what they were getting into. It’s not a secret: MEN LOVE STRIPPERS. They are visual & physical. That is what men like. Worse things happen in the strip club that don’t even make it on TV. All you “educated Black women” need to realize that your reality doesn’t exist for those video girls. You can’t even understand the psychology behind it because you all are too busy being posted up on your pedestal. Yes, Nelly should have more respect for women. But I don’t believe that’s his entire attitude about all women. Men respect women who respect themselves. And I am sure all of the women were told before they shot the video what they were about to do. Nelly has had his name dragged through the mud over this one video. Has anyone done the same to 50 Cent, Snoop Dogg, etc? They all have uncut videos. And have they done the same to the females in the “Tip Drill” video? No. So stop harping on something that is so terribly old. And I don’t think Spelman was right for booting Nelly out like that. If they had a problem with him before he came, then they should have canceled the event and let him hold it somewhere else. Also, I find it hard to respect CERTAIN Spelman women, when they are also a part of the female population that’s right along with the video models shaking their asses to degrading music & what not. I agree that the event could have possibly helped save his sister’s life. Somebody may think I’m being dramatic, but whatever. Get at me when you’ve lived through watching a loved one die & it could have been prevented. I agree completely! ^^^^^^ Okay especially when I have videos of the same women protesting nelly on tape at party's acting like the chicks in the video and at least the girls in the videos are not snorting coke like the heffas I have on tape so again I WILL SAY HYPOCRITES[/quote] haha can i see those vids?

Like many have already said,

Like many have already said, everybody needs to stop acting iike little girls and stop being so sensitive..Yes it is unfortunate that black women are portrayed as hoes, bitches, whores...yes we know it sucks.. but of course we all know everybody needs a figure to blame and Nelly being that figure. These are grown ass women who know exactly what they would have to do. We as women need to cut the bullshit and stop playing this helpless, weak victim role as though its entirely the men's fault. Nelly is a grown ass man, that is doing grown man things with grown women. Get over it. In my opinion he is not wrong for doing the video as well as saying that he would do another one again. There are dozens of other artists that have done the same thing and I don'tsee them catching heat. Celebrities, I don't care how popular they are, are not responsible for the actions of women, or men. Women and Men are responsible are responsible for their own actions. Grow the f*ck up

Where hypocrites because we

Where hypocrites because we demand more respect for yourselves. It wouldn’t be that big of a deal if it just stayed on the TV. But it doesn’t it is in the homes. And next time you might want to use the spell check because it’s hard to take someone’s comments serious if you have to correct their comments. I’m just saying don’t take it personal. Oh I am not taking it personal not all and I was trying not to get caught fucking off at work so I was not able to correct my typo's. But you too should check before you post because I am sure you meant we're and not where and also maybe you should practice what you practice what you preach and not take a video that was meant for entertainment purposes personal I mean after all it was not your ass that was swiped with the card. I am just saying don't take it personal.

It’s obvious we can't leave it up to anyone else; especially the Black men in our world that are suppose to uplift and empower us. But they want us to do it for them. Someone has their priorities mixed up. And then they wonder why other ethnic groups disrespect us because they do and we act like we are fine with it.

I rarely ever seen them shown in degrading ways. As far as white women being degraded in music videos, for every negative image of white women shown on television you can always turn to the next channel and find a white women as a doctor lawyer,or a teacher. With black women the range of our images is very narrow in the media. Hip hop is now very mainstream and other countries other culture take the video's to be true portrayal of what black women really are. To me black male rappers that are degrading women in their music and video's are sellouts. White men own these record companies, young white males are the man ones buying the cd's. So there feeding into what white males want to see and hear. Black men who do this don't have respect for black women or for themselves. Any other black men that defends rappers degrading black women is ignorant and it sickens me that someone actually thinks it's ok to call a black women a bitch, slut ,whore, needs some serious psychological help!

I give Nelly his props for standing up for himself & making some valid points. Did I like the Tip Drill video, hell no, so I didn't watch it. I don't like 90% of the videos out these days, that's why I don't watch. The fact is, all the people who protested him & his video haven't changed anything. It's still happening today, so why make it his issue? He's moved on, why can't you?? And like he said, every women in that video made the decision to be in it. They were not forced.

FYI, her skirt is probably knee length but because she is sitting down its mid thigh. We shouldn't even be talking about her clothes because what she is wearing has nothing to do with the fact that Nelly overracted and blew it out of proportion. Second, "just needin' some dick" is part of life. As grown women, just because you want sex that means you are a tip drill? WTF? Then I guess everybody on this board is a tip drill.

[quote comment="184461"]I am

[quote comment="184461"]I am soooooo soooooo soooooo sooooo sick of the you are degrading women argument - Nelly has a point and a good one at that. We still listen to the music and watch the videos - so where's the beef. Also - how damn old is Tip Drill??? there is an entire porn industry that makes money off these hoes and NOBODY is putting them on blast. its about personal responsibility...nothing more.[/quote] I totally agree, people act like he is the first one to do something like this. If i were him talking to that girl, i would have asked her is this all she has to talk about, and if so i would have been out. He has to talk about this EVERYTIME he is interviewed! Damn! if you dont like what he is doing, dont watch it and tell your daughters not to imitate it either! Look, the reality of the situation is, there are females who do the types of things in his video in real life,everyday, women do it to survive, to feed thier kids, to go through school, and because they want to be seen. We cant blame Nelly for putting it on a screen. it has to start with the females. They have options, they are given choices, nobody told her she HAD to, even if Nelly did put some money in front of her. That just shows that she really needed that money for whatever reasons. Hell, most females be jammin to rap thats talkin about bitches and hoes, all that. and lets face it, there are really bitches and hoes out there, and those are the types of females that are talked about. I dont get offened, thats not my name. whatever this is the song that doesnt end, yes it goes on and on my friends...

After reading the majority of the iggnorant bullshit in the comments I understand . . . . the majority of black women on here condon this and his mess, talking about it`s the womens FAULT or to each this own . Do you not understand that this is ultimately hurting you in the long run , of how society views us ? ! It`s sad i know but that`s the sad truth . a black women is more than just her body . on another note . . . a credit card through the ass = references to slavery, the lack of respect for the black womens body ..etc. AS WOMEN HOW THE FUCK CAN YOU NOT BE OFFENEDED ? !? !?! ?! ?! ?! ? we most def. need to do better , spellman had it right . ___________________________ btw to the female who said kids aren`t smart enought to listen to common , what kids do you talk to honestly =/ I`m 15 and i LOVE and comprehend everything .

Nelly is sexy, yes. That

Nelly is sexy, yes. That aside he is a whack MC, just my opinion and I'm entitled to it, damnit and though I feel him and the point he was making, homegirl was DEAD ON. I'm sorry, you can't pick and choose when to be about something substantive and when not. God rest his sister's soul, but how would Nelly feel if when she was here and she went to the club with her girls and a dude tried to swipe a Credit Card down her ass 'cause he saw that shyt on TIP DRILL?! Or if some lil dude did that to his daughter? It's foul, and yes!, birds will do anything for a dollar,BUT you have the world as your platform (not them!) and you can CHOOSE to employ the birds for your video or not! pick one brutha!!! You either Weezy'n it up, or you have COMMON SENSE, pun intended. Don't try to over talk the sister and justify some BS with something else that's unrelated. We've got to do better people!!! Just got to... & DMX, I can't even....I won't even....I'm done, next!.....

And you know, I usually don't

And you know, I usually don't give a damn what people think about me (black women) but you know, with some of your opinions on the Nelly situation, I know a lot of people would consider black women dumb and worthless. Yes, its that serious. Yeah, its the women signing up to be in the videos but no matter what ya'll say, they represent us. And seeing that they mean nothing to you and you are praising Nelly like he is God, that shows a lot. And for all you saying theres nothing wrong with the video (16 year old chick who called it softcore porn like it was cool) I suggest you get God in your life.

If Nelly was Yung Berg would

If Nelly was Yung Berg would he be getting defended like this? Or if he was the ugliest thing in hip hop, would he have all these supporters? I completely understand that the women allow theirselves to be degraded but Nelly slided a credit card down a woman's ass. HE HAS NO RESPECT FOR WOMEN. Support his whack ass? Hell no. His lyrics have no depth. He has no talent. The only thing he got going is his looks which I'm not into. I'm not gunna lose sleep at night for this shit and neither should the radio host. And to the dumbass who said if she wasn't "ugly" she would be in that video, nah, honey, theres plenty of attractive women who don't have to take off their clothes. Have you ever heard of college? A lot of young women attend and get degrees to become doctors, lawyers and so on. A lot of you females up in here ignorant as hell. I suggest some of you find out what life is really about.

THOSE BLACK WOMEN WHO "CHOOSE" TO BE TREATED LIKE WHORES GET NO LOVE FROM MYSELF, BUT WHY DONT THESE SO-CALLED GROWN ASS BLACK MEN CONDEMN THEM OR DISCOURAGE THEM FROM DEGRADING THEIR BODIES...LEADING THEM IN THE RIGHT PATH????!!!!!! I CANNOT LOOK AT SHIT LIKE HIS SEAN JOHN CAMPAIGN WITHOUT THINKING ABOUT THIS GLORIFIED COON TRYING TO JUSTIFY HIS FILTHY CONDUCT!!! THE BLACK MEN WHO PROMOTE IT AS WELL AS THE BLACK WOMEN WHO USE WORDS LIKE BITCH AND WHORE AS TERMS OF ENDEARMENT NEED TO BE RE-EDUCATED IN BLACK AMERICAN HISTORY. SEND THEM OVER TO THE MOTHERLAND AND SEE HOW MEN AND WOMEN CAN CO-EXIST AS EQUALS---KINGS AND QUEENS LIKE THEY SHOULD BE AND HOW THEY CARRY THEMSELVES!!!!!!! NELLY TRYING TO MITIGATE HIS ACTIONS BY TALKIN ABOUT LUKAEMIA AWARENESS DOES NOT CHANGE THE FACT THAT HE MADE A VIDEO LIKE TIP DRILL AND HOW HE SAYS HE'D MAKE ANOTHER ONE LIKE IT. I REALLY DONT GIV A FUCK ABOUT 90% OF RAP MUSIC CUZ MOST OF THESE NIGGAS IS WACK AND ARE JUST PLAYING OUT LIKE A SLAVESHIP/MINSTREL SHOW ENTERTAINMENT. AND THE LIKES OF LUDACRIS WANNA GET ALL CONSCIOUS AFTER DOING SHIT LIKE "I WANNA LICK U FROM UR HEAD TO UR TOE" AND "PUSSY POPPIN ON A HANDSTAND". HONESTLY IM GLAD OPRAH DONT INVITE THESE BUFFONS ON HER SHOW. IF MORE BLACK WOMEN HAD HER MINDSET WE'D BE A LOT MORE POSITIVE AND WELL RESPECTED.[/quote] I agree with some of your points, but what about BET? They actually had a one hour show dedicated to those types of videos. Nobody sad anything to Bob Johnson at all...[/quote] girl i was talking to my mama bout that earlier..vh1, bet, and mtv are owned by black folks who like to make their own look foolish just to sell to the masses (i.e. Uncut, Flavor of Love, etc). Its been like that since the beginning, slaves werent stolen, they were sold. I mean maybe she shouldnt bought it up, but that video is what nelly is most known for.. I dont care for or condone any of that but they will be others ignorant enough to think thats cool. But it was totally out of line for him to use vulgarity!!! Ill be glad when theres positive portrayals of black folks on tv (other than car commercials and all..). Bernie Mac show cause a bit of controversy with the caucasions but it was probably like the last show weve had on tv with a great portrayal of a black family. and PLZ! I do agree, it is the girls choice to do that![/quote] No VH1, BET, and MTV are run by white folks all under the umbrella of VIACOM [as is Nickolodean (sp?)]They select the host/ actors to 'best' represent the group they are after on each channel-- obviously this is all based of off mostly stereotyping unfortunately--- although BET USED to be black owned I want to say it was 99 when B Johnson sold it at the same time he purchased the BObcats in North Carolina--- thats all I wanted to say but I agree with everything else :)

At the end of the day, those

At the end of the day, those women did make their own decision to be in the video . . . they are grown ass women and knew how they would be portrayed. THEY chose to audition for the video, THEY chose to put little to no clothing on, and I can pretty much guarantee they were not forced. You sit here and argue in their defense but if they're not arguing right along with you . . it's basically pointless. So you can sit here and put the blame on Nelly but when is some of the blame going to be put on those grown ass women too?

Who had the nerved to mention

Who had the nerved to mention Oprah?She brought on the KKK, a rapist and a professional whore on her show and that professional whore we all know claim what the industry that made her now degrages, but she was degrading herself for sleeping with married men.So whoever made that statement it is invalid. Summary: Raise your damn kids.Period.

[quote comment="184542"]OKAAAAAAAAAAY Im outta here. If yall ignorant asses arent PAYING ATTENTION TO WHAT IVE FULLY WRITTEN, then I can't help. I cannot believe I'm being accused of taking sides with video vixens. For the final time (for those too slow to even read all I've said here): I am condemning rappers AND the women who choose to do this crap. They CHOOSE to be called bitches at the expense of ordinary black women. We have to put up with stereotypes cuz of them and their asses showing in the videos. The white man disrespects us in everyday life, cuz hes probably been exposed to these stanks in videos (not to mention Flavor of Love too) and thinks we're all sex objects--NO THANKS to these stupid women (so called grown ups) exercising their FREEDOM OF CHOICE :roll:[/quote] DAAAAMN IM LATE LOL...Well i'm a 16yr old african american female and when i read these comments i laughed all the way down the page. I respect what a lot of u r sayin and after hearin soo much about it i watched the damn tip drill video...that aint nothing but softcore porn. I can't imagine y people get so upset over nonsense like this and especially y they think that "the kids" are being influenced by it. Matter of fact i completely resent the fact that the lady i'm responding to(even though she left) sed kids aren't smart enough to understand common. If u raise ur kids wit common sense this video won't matter..im geussing the girls participating in the vid are compensating 4 sumthin

Why does eveyone hate on

Why does eveyone hate on Nelly for the Tip Drill video? It was an adult video for adults. He didn't put up a poster in the video that read, "This is how all black women act"! Black people always jump on other black people when they don't agree with what their doing. Do you think white people act this way when Pamela Anderson or Brittany Spears act a fool!! NO, b/c they know they do not represent all white women.

It's as simple as

It's as simple as this... Nelly made a disgusting video that degraded and disrespected black women. Black women didn't appreciate. Therefore we should do the following: STOP BUYING AND LISTENING TO MUSIC MADE BY PEOPLE WHO HAVE NO RESPECT FOR YOU! Black women need to WAKE UP and stop spending our money on people who degrade us. They swipe credit cards between our ass cheeks in videos and walk down the red carpet with white women. When will we get it through our heads! Furthermore. If Nelly wants to create borderline porn videos, than he should be prepared to deal with the stigma that comes along with it. Therefore don't be surprised when a group of BLACK WOMEN don't want to see you perform in a concert at their ALL FEMALE COLLEGE. What he did is no different than Don Imus trying to do a fundraiser at Howard Univ. I don't care what your purpose was. You are a pariah and you need to be treated as such. If you want to make adult entertainment than expect to be treated like anyone else from that work. This rappers want to make trash and then be treated like respectable people and looked up to. Nope. Your not a respectable person and that's why you get treated the way you do. Respect is something that is earned. All to often, black wome give it away for free. Finally. I don't care if 5000 women were willing to exploit themselves in that video. IT'S HIS VIDEO. Unless these women tied him down and force him to record the song and directed the video, he and only he is responsible for the content. It's funny how he talks about the need to talk about these young girls who are on the pole, as if that absolves the fact that he shouldn't be in the business of exploiting people - period. Who care if that women mentors girls or not. It doesn't release you of your obligation to be responsible artist. This is why i barely f*ck with hip hop. Self absorbed a**holes, with rocks for brains who make their money exploiting black women for the profit of white men.
