Nelly Mayweather

Mayweather’s beefs with rappers (T.I., Nelly and 50 Cent) maybe better than his in-ring opponents. The crux of his beef with Nelly has to do with Nelly dating his ex-fiancee Ms. Jackson.

Almost all his outside of the ring beefs have to do with women. Nelly was on ESPN’s Highly Questionable to say he has no beef with Mayweather, but then dropped a jab of his own at the end, no pun intended.

All of this stuff is silly, but to the specific point about Mayweather dropping out of High School, it didn’t have anything to do with his intelligence, but his family situation.

“I basically raised myself,” Mayweather says. “My grandmother did what she could. When she got mad at me I’d go to my mom’s house. My life was ups and downs”. His father says he knows how much pain his incarceration caused his son, but insists he did the best he could. “I sent him to live with his grandmother”, he says. “It wasn’t like I left him with strangers”.

Boxing became Mayweather’s outlet – a way to deal with his father’s absence. As the elder Mayweather served his time his son – with speed and an uncanny ring sense – put all his energies into boxing, dropping out of high school. “I knew that I was going to have to try to take care of my mom and I made the decision that school wasn’t that important at the time and I was going to have to box to earn a living”, Mayweather says.

You would hope at some point everyone could all get along, but I doubt that is going to happen.

    Most of Nelly’s friends were High school drop outs. I can name like 4 guys from Real Husband’s of Hollywood that are HS drop outs. I’m not understanding Nelly’s point.
