Nelly has an important message that he wants to send out about single fatherhood on his BET reality series, “Nellyville.” Earlier today, the rapper stopped by The Real to talk about about raising his two kids and niece and nephew in today’s world.
“We are the only generation and I think this is where we have to realize the magnitude of what we’re doing. We are the only generation of parents that I mean we share the most with our kids!”
He continued, “You know, we share the same clothes, we play video games, we like the same things. You know, me and my son, we can literally be buddies. Like we wear the same shoes. You know, sometimes his clothes go a little far with him and my nephew, but they are always in my closet. And I dip down in their room and snatching hats, you know what I’m saying and little things. We talk about the same things. We like the same music, majority of it!”
“Sometimes they go a little far. but I still understand that you have to let the youth be the youth. You know, and you gotta let them make their own mistakes, but it’s also important to understand that umm… you know, you got to guide them!”
