Why one-on-one you can't hold me if your last name was Hanes
You can’t go against him or hold him back from winning no matter what.
“One-on-one” is a common basketball game where one player faces another player.
“You can’t hold me if your last name is Hanes” can be interpreted in one 1 of 2 things:
- Hanes is an underwear brand. Nelly’s making the point that not even tight underwear can hold him back, or perhaps it can’t hold his big junk.
- Marques Haynes was a basketball player for the trick team Harlem Globetrotters. By continuing the one-on-one basketball reference, Nelly says that even an elite basketball player like Haynes doesn’t have shit on him.
Also : Nelly’s last name is Haynes
