NELLY AIRED OUT BY ST. LUNATICS RAPPER ALI IN RESPONSE TO ‘ANOTHER SUBLIMINAL DISS’
Written by Nate Matthews on October 14, 2021
Nelly exploded into superstardom with his 2000 Country Grammar album, which debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard 200 and remained there for five consecutive weeks. Subsequently, the album became the ninth Hip Hop album to earn a diamond certification from the Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA).
But none of it would’ve been possible without the St. Lunatics— at least according to one of its members. On Monday (October 11), St. Lunatics rapper Ali shared an old interview of Nelly crediting Ali for helping him take a different direction with his music, a direction that led to unimaginable success.
He also accused Nelly of sending another “subliminal diss” on Sunday (October 10) that read, “It’s called a career and in it you have ups and downs…some never have ups themselves so technically they just never had a career. they just was apart of someone else. FACT!!”
