St. Lunatics Member Ali Accuses Ludacris Of Throwing Shots At Nelly & Stealing His Style

The two Hip Hop legends are set to go hit-for-hit on Saturday at 7 pm ET.

(AllHipHop News)Β Ludacris of Disturbing Tha Peace is going against Nelly of Derrty Entertainment in the next Verzuz. Even though Verzuz curator Swizz Beatz insists the series is more about celebrating classic music than the two artists going head-to-head, this weekend's Instagram Live event may have some (hopefully resolved) personal baggage attached to it.Β 

Nelly's business associate and St. Lunatics member Ali took to Instagram to accuse Ludacris of constantly stealing from the "Country Grammer" hitmaker during their respective musical runs in the 2000s. He also claimed Luda was subliminally dissing Nelly in music videos like "Stand Up" featuring Shawnna.

Ali wrote:

Ok, you knew I was eventually going to start telling the truth..... Ludacris has been throwing little shots for years ..... This was one of his little Diss moments ...He was TRYING to say β€œhe stomps harder in his Air Force 1’s”.... πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚ .... I Personally have NEVER liked him and ALWAYS thought he was a pure 🀑!! (That’s just how I looked at him) ....

In a separate post, Ali added:

Ok, more truth.... Little Chris has been stealing from us since day one {Swipe}.... We dropped country grammar a few months later he tried to duplicate it πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚... The exact same thing.. walking back in front of the cars ... .. and then he used to have the nerve to not want to speak when we seen him. πŸ€¦πŸ½β€β™‚οΈ... like hoe ass ni€€a...”we see you stealing our whole sh*t .... you that mad that you can’t even speak ??!?? πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ€‘πŸ€‘πŸ€‘πŸ€‘πŸ€‘πŸ€‘πŸ€‘!!!!! FOH (These are all Ali’s views... This is not Nelly Talk’n, Murphy Lee or any of the Other Tics..... this is all me .... I never liked him !!!and Never pretended like I did !! Nope , that’s Fake !!πŸ€¦πŸ½β€β™‚οΈ

Yesterday, Ali also uploaded a selfie video where he further discussed his issues with the DTP label co-founder. TheΒ Heavy Starch album creator stated, "Ludacris used to steal our sh*t so much, I used to be like, 'N*gga, would you stop.'"Β 

He went on to suggest that Nelly released the controversial "Tip Drill" song in 2003 as a way to draw attention away from Luda'sΒ "P-Poppin" single. Apparently, some of the supposed tension between the St. Lunatics and Ludacris at the time was connected to the beef between St. Louis representatives Nelly and then-DTP artist Chingy.

Both Ludacris and Nelly have been keeping it cool publicly in the run-up to their Verzuz matchup. Luda posted an old photo of himself and his upcoming opponent with a caption that read, "Classic sh*t." Nelly spent the last two days promoting the battle to his followers.
