Before Verzuz, Ali Breaks Down The Real Ludacris Vs. Nelly Battle On Instagram  was originally published on

1. The “Air Force One Sneak Diss”

In the first post, Ali talks about how Ludacris “sneak dissed” Nelly at the beginning of his hit single “Stand Up.” He says that Luda’s stomp in the huge Nike Air Force 1 shoe was his way of saying he “stomps harder in his Air Force 1’s.


2. Country Grammar vs. What’s Yo Fantasy?

In Ali’s next post, he posts a clip of Nelly’s chart-topping breakout hit “Country Grammar” and says that Luda did the same exact thing in his breakout single “What’s Yo Fantasy.” On IG, Ali said “We dropped country grammar a few months later he tried to duplicate it 😂😂😂😂😂… 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.”

3. Luda Does Country… Like Nelly?

In 2004, Nelly teamed up with Country star Tim McGraw for the song ” Over and Over.” What did Luda do a couple of years later? He teamed up with country star Jason Aldean on the remix to his hit “Dirt Road Anthem.” Hmmm

4. Farm Animals, Mo?

Yea, while it wasn’t the first time ever… We talking about Farm Animals. On IG, Ali said “Then it only got worse from that point….. I mean he started stealing everything we did….. even if we did something like put farm animals in our records …..then guess what he would do next??? … yes you guessed correctly he would put farm animals in his record. I’m not lying, I’m not making this stuff up see for yourself !!

5. P-Poppin’ Vs. Tip Drill

Things that make you go hmmm? In 2000, Nelly releases the BET Uncut classic song and video “Tip Drill.” In 2003, Ludacris drops “P-Poppin” but the story on why Tip Drill was created should be told on the big screen if true.
