Chances that St. Louis-bred rap star Nelly celebrated Father’s Day this month are a little slim to none if you take his recent sentiments about his father into account, which he exposed via Twitter on Saturday (June 24).
In a seemingly random tirade against his father, the Country Grammar artist called his father out for his what Nelly considers a deadbeat disposition. He revealed that his father wasn’t in his life as a child and suggests that he only shows up now for the cash payout. Nelly is a proud, self-proclaimed “Mama’s boy,” he boasted in another tweet, saluting her for always stepping up as a mother when he needed it most.
Fans were a bit confused as to where the scolding against his father came from so suddenly. But after The Shade Room posted Derrty Mo’s father in a Snapchat video with his former R&B songstress girlfriend Ashanti, suspicions arose that the clip could have been the trigger that set off Nelly’s Twitter censure for his dad.
