Nelly Takes a Jab at Floyd Mayweather, Clowns Boxer for Being a Drop Out

It’s another week in the rapper vs. Floyd Mayweather Jr. drama; this time, Nelly's back in the ring.

The St. Lunatic, who is currently dating Mayweather's ex-fiancée, Shantel Jackson, addressed the issues he's been having lately with the undefeated boxing champ on ESPN's Highly Questionable on Monday (July 28), and went right for the jugular.

"I don't have a beef with Floyd Mayweather," Nelly insisted. "I think the whole thing is misunderstood. I try to understand where he's coming from, which is a little hard to do ... It's kind of hard talking to a guy who hasn't graduated from high school."

Mayweather has spoken candidly in the past about dropping out of high school to pursue his boxing career.

This latest blow comes days after Mayweather frenemy 50 Cent posted an image of Nelly and Shantel frolicking on the beach to his Instagram account along with the caption, "Nelly put this up @floydmayweather D-MN da n---a really took your lady Champ. It's @missjackson birthday. Smh, CHAMP I ain't gonna lie this motherf---er bad. You need to start operation GET THE B---H BACK. Right now !!!"

Nelly and Shantel's relationship went public in May, around the release of Nelly's song "Thanks to My Ex." Mayweather responded with a Twitter/Instagram rant claiming his relationship with Jackson ended because she aborted their children. Nelly then hit back indirectly, tweeting: Why be rich with poor character..?"

Play nice fellas. Hopefully this doesn't get physical like Mayweather and Atlanta rapper T.I.  over his wife, Tiny.
