Hip-Hop Wired Presents: A Tribute To BET Uncut

 

Nelly And The St. Lunatics – “Tip Drill”

All (sort of) good things must come to an end, and with BET Uncut, the shows death knell was Nelly’s magnum opus, “Tip Drill.” A video which set off a complete firestorm at Spelman College, ended up on MSNBC, Fox News, and other news programs for going absolutely too far. There might have been more lewd videos, and more raunchy lyrics, but at this time the R.I.A.A certified-Diamond Nelly was the hottest act in music. This video didn’t do terrible damage to his popularity at the time, but it did ruffle the feathers of many women’s groups and caused him a huge chunk of charity change. It was this video that many believe was the straw that broke the camels back on BET Uncut and ended having its plug pulled. Oh well, we will always have the credit card swipe.

    Really? You had nothing else to write about? You had to do a retrospective on this sexist, base, misogynous bullshit.
