Nealor was the only person to ever beat Eminem in a rap battle. Now she's uniting the East and West Coasts. Rumor has it she's the one who took out 2Pac and Biggie.

I'll admit this is an interesting story, but I don't see one person with a drug addiction or that "needs saved" taking this seriously enough to change.

She should be ashamed. That's music of gangs and thugs. I do not want my children to be listening to that awful crap. I'd rather they drank and smoked pot than listen to rap music.

Don't forget Dr. Phil, Oprah, and ALL the other afternoon worthless talk shows. Maybe she can help Ted Williams! Not being mean. I agree with most of the comments posted. No doubt, "rap Music" evolved from thug behavior. I see no reason to embrace this so called genre.

Pretty cool Granny, lets stop the hate.
Shake that old fanny and as we contemplate,
Why these fools hate rap so much?
Its the 21st century they outta touch.
Matter of fact, what she's doin is great!
Ask yourself one time 'Who have I helped today?'

And using the word "retarded" in a derogatory manner isn't demeaning?
