Bradley Beal says Nelly used to walk him to elementary school

Did you take the bus to elementary school when you were a child? Or did your mommy walk you to the front steps, making sure your shirt was properly tucked in and your face was free of jelly streaks? If you answered yes to either of those questions, well, you are not as cool as Washington Wizards guard Bradley Beal.

Why? Because Beal was walked to school be Nelly. Yeah, that Nelly.

The Washington Post has the story:

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.”


“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.

Do you feel old? I feel old.
