The 2004 beef between rapper Nelly and the women of Spelman College resurfaced in a recent interview. Nelly said the school “robbed him” of the chance to seek out a bone marrow donor for his sister when a bone-marrow drive was canceled after students protested on account of the explicit images portrayed in Nelly’s “Tip Drill” video. Nelly’s sister died of Leukemia the following year.
