St. Louis Rapper Nelly Walked Bradley Beal To Elementary School

When Wizard’s guard Bradley Beal was a young boy, St. Louis’ rapper “Nelly” would walk him to elementary school.

According to Michael Lee of the Washington Post, Bradley Beal and Nelly had ties before all the glitz and glamour started to set in. It’s a great coincidence, however it’s a part of Beal’s childhood that the Wizards’ guard hardly remembers.

“I knew who we was, but I didn’t know,” Beal said of the now 39-year-old Nelly. “He used to walk me to school sometimes, when I was a little kid. He wasn’t as big as he is now, but he was an up-and-coming rapper and eventually ‘Country Grammar’ came out” in 2000.

“Nelly was a former star athlete at University City High in suburban St. Louis, where Beal’s mother, Besta, was a physical education teacher and athletic director. So, Beal can’t remember the first time he met Nelly, only that it was “ages ago.”

The St. Louis rapper “Nelly” currently owns a portion of the Charlotte Bobcats and was actually in attendance this past Tuesday when the Wizards had beaten the Bobcats with the score of 97-83.

It’s funny how we all think the world is so big, but in actuality, it’s so small.

  1. Nelly may well be Beal’s father , I mean if Ludacris and D Wade are acknowledging the fact that they’ve fathered kids while being involved with someone else . This might be the rapper’s way of acknowledging that as well . LOL,LOL,LOL !!! Isn’t owning a stake in the Bobcats similar to owning shares in a soon to be defunct entity ? I mean what have the Charlotte Bobcats achieved since being bought by Michael Jordan ? Left you a response with regard to what you felt my thoughts were on the Redskins’ hiring of Jay Gruden .

      Can’t disagree with you because the Bobcats have done nothing since inception. About Nelly and Beal, you always seem to find the comedy in everything.
