Nelly and Ashanti

Ashanti: Nelly Told 50 Cent To Apologize To Me At The 2007 MTV VMA's (VIDEO)

(AllHipHop News) Ashanti was the unsuspecting (and non-participating) bystander in the volatile beef between G-Unit and Murder Inc in the early 2000’s which led to her being dissed in numerous songs. However, Ashanti explains that there is no current disagreement with 50 Cent and Nelly is the reason for it.

While on DJ Whoo Kid’s Hollywood Shuffle, Ashanti explained how former boyfriend Nelly urged 50 Cent directly  to apologize to Ashanti at the 2007 MTV Video Music Awards in Las Vegas:

I would see 50 every now and again and I never had a problem. He didn’t seem like he had a problem. But, the first time we kind of ‘spoke’ so to speak, we were at the VMA’s in Vegas and Nelly was like ‘yo, you need to apologize to my girl.’ We were in front of everybody and you know, 50 has a personality, he was like ‘Ashanti I’m sorry! I’m sorry, Ashanti!’

Ashanti is preparing to release her fifth studio album BraveHeart on Februray 18th.

Check out Ashanti’s interview below:

If I’m going to walk past you and try to son me by saying “hey you need to apologize to my girl”/ even if I was going to do that action on my own, just on a man’s perspective I aint doing shi* if you try to front on me by telling me to apologize Real niccas do real things. You the type of cornball nicca I use to smack in the face just off GP for being a weirdo MOGUL HOEEE! QUEENS!


        Your the type of Loser Coward in his aunties basement acting hard because you’ve been bullied your whole life! Please forgive me for “YELLING” at the continued ignorance of us black people. Since your so proud of QUEENS & so tough, take a trip to the Southside of Chicago & find out how many people have ever smacked me Mr. Keyboard Killer/Internet Gangsta/Telephone Terrorist.

      • Jayson C Williams

        Y ya even respond to the idiot lol he’s lame

  • Crenshaw on my shirt

    Don’t sleep on Nelly. He was in those St. Louis streets before he started rapping

    • Jayson C Williams

      It’s a mutual respect between bosses. 50 used her for ammo never had a disagreement with her. You gotta respect a man who confronts you respectfully. Streets n at Louis ain’t got nothing to with it. Respect means more

  • wickedjones

    One thing about 50. He doesn’t disrespect black women, so it wouldn’t surprise me if he apologized to her.


      lmao you sound stupid like shyt

    • Havoc Wreaka III

      Real stupid

  • JON_JOHN1972

    this story is old 50 already said that nelly ask him to apologize to ashanti and it was not like nelly was tryin to ho 50 cause u know 50 was not going to go for that but nelly saw 50 & him and 50 is cool & ashanti was his girl at the time like real niggas do u look out for your lady and 50 never had beef wit ashanti so him saying he sorry is nothin

    • Wouurrr

      Not saying it happened but do you know 50? Cuz by the way you said “cuz you know 50 not gonna go for that” it would seem as if you hang with him everyday? Or do you just watch him thru internet & via mp3 & now think you know him or how or what he is/isnt?

      • Truth Powell

        lol oh man…..

      • I WILL BITE YOU!!

        lol everyone knows 50 don’t give a F… why are you so confused?

  • CanYouAllHearMe

  • Duke From Queens NY

    50 said sorry only because he didnt have any beef with ashanti, he probably wanted to apologize anyway. its definitly not because Nelly made him do it, yal know 50 dont give a F.

    • John Q. Public

      prolly wants to hit as well

  • chosenxeno

    I bet Nelly wouldn’t step to today’s King of New York, Kendrick Lamar.

  • brotha_man

    fif didnt have beef wit ashanti, she was just in the way. this is probably one of those situations where ashanti told nelly to talk to fif. nelly was nervous, rehearsed what he was going to say in the bathroom. while in the bathroom fif went up to ashanti and apologizes. nelly came out bathroom and back to seat…..just as he was going to lie to ashanti about having talked to fif. she kissed nelly and told him he was the best, for making fif apologize….dumbfounded nelly just rolled with it.

    The End.

    • W.E.B. Du Bois

      wow, you was right there! – post some pics!

      • brotha_man

  • All imma say is St. Louis is a very hard city to grow up in….don’t ever get it twisted just cuz our rappers don’t glorify the violence. Nelly prolly aint come at dude on no punking him type ish cuz he don’t seem like the type in my opinion, I know what side bruh grew up on tho so who knows. STL been hard tho…IJS. For the weak hearted, I would ask that you google it versus going there thinking its sweet cuz of Nelly lmao. These streets will def give you PTSD out here.

    • Michael Reed

      GTFO of here. Im also from STL and the “hard streets” you talk about are mostly glorified east STL violence. And guess what? People forget that’s actually Illinois. STL is taaaaaaaaaame.

      • Just from your statement I can tell you aint from there bruh, you prolly from St. Charles or something huh? News flash, that aint the Lou bruh. You ever been through Walnut Park or the surrounding areas? I bet you haven’t bruh and you know it too. Can’t believe the nerve of you lames nowadays, jeggings wearing ass nigga, you talkn to a dude that ran through east st and all over the Lou. Ya’ll new niggaz sumn else man, talking bout tame. I guess if I never left the porch I’d feel the same as you, you’s a big bowl of bitch potna.

      • fuckthisrapgame

        bruh what are you getting at, are you trying to brag about how dangerous and fuked up your city is? wtf… our gen is all fuked up.

      • First of all, I was simply pointing out the fact that people seemed surprised that Nelly would do such a thing as confront 50 cent. I basically was saying don’t let the smooth taste fool you because lil bruh never raps hardcore really, but everybody replied to me on some weak nigga shit so I was letting your jegging wearing weak ass generation know not to get it twisted just cuz bruh don’t seem like the type, I know my city and you have to be of a certain pedigree to make it there. Secondly, I am not of your weak ass generation sir, you niggaz wearing skirts and other feminine products nowadays so try again jr.

      • Michael Reed

        Oh my goodness, you hurt my FEELINGS. Ahahahaha. Keep living for “the streets”, I’ll keep stacking chips.

    • Wouurrr

      ..just like *insert city or country here*.

      I hate you niggas, i really do.

      • First of all lame nigga, you cannot just insert any city here or there and thats a fact. Its not hard to find the truth, I hate you type niggaz too bruh, titty fed and bitchmade, never been out the burbs. I stay down south now and this place aint nothing like my city, I like the fact I can say wsup to a bruh down here and they say wsup back, try that shit back home and see what kinda response you get. Its niggaz like you that wouldnt last a fuckn hr if you got stranded out of bounds. Man I hate pussass niggaz man. You’s a pop tart sweetheart, you soft in the middle.

      • st louie ant shit!!!

    • st louie full of puzzies bruh.. come to camden

  • RichFromBX

    this is how a chick gets a dude beat up – she’s presenting this story like Nelly got gully on 50 and 50 got shook…what probably happened is the two of them spoke like adult men and handled the situation like adult men.

    • nah it was prolly said in jist, and 50 was laughing while he said sorry.. lol..

    • killa

      true hard to believe anyway nelly dnt claim dat bitch he was in the club in my city fuckin my daughters stripper auntie while they supposedly was together Ashanti washed up she might as well sign up for LOVE N HIP HOP js

  • Ryan

    Man some of you guys are pathetic and make me laugh. You dont have to be a
    “G” to stand up for your women and confront somebody that said awful stuff about her and with 50 realizing he was wrong and saying sorry just shows that you can be MATURE unlike most of you idiots saying he should plain and simple when push came to shove it was the right thing to say. Big props to 50 that was a crazy beef in which she had nothing to do with anything.

    • man 50 was kidding you really think he is sorry?? like u think he suddenly realized he was sorry?? ahahaha he dont give a F!

    I don’t think it was nothing like that. Two men working out a situation and cooler heads prevailed. Now that is how bosses move. Why even bring this all up anyway?

  • ihatefaggots

    Nelly made it cool for pussies to wear bandaid on there face, lol remember that one

    • AlbertoRipRon
