Fans Are Streaming Nelly's 'Hot In Herre' On Repeat To Pay Off His Tax Lien


Nelly

It was recently revealed that Nelly is in some serious financial debt, owing more than $2 million in unpaid taxes which puts his assets at risk of being seized by the IRS. However, there may be a way you can help him without donating any money at all.

NellyCan Spotify help Nelly pay off his taxes?

As reported by TMZ, Nelly has been slapped with a massive $2,412,283 federal tax lien and he also owes an additional $149,511 in unpaid state tax according to the Missouri Department of Revenue. But a nifty idea has arisen online, suggesting that if fans were to stream his 2002 number one hit 'Hot In Herre' on repeat via Spotify, he may bring in enough bucks to pay his debts.

Nelly Jailed Over Weed In Tennessee


Nelly

 Nelly, aka Cornell Haynes - the quintessential southern rapper - has been arrested on drugs charges in Tennessee. According to Billboard, the Hot in Here hitmaker was pulled over by a state trooper on Saturday morning for not having two of the required stickers. 

The timing wasa bit unfortunate, though. According to the report, the officer smelled marijuana inside the car, which prompted him to search the vehicle. In the end, the vehicle contained five rocks that tested positive for meth, a small amount of marijiuana as well as drug paraphernalia. Several handguns were also found in the bus. Another man, Brian Jones, was charged with being a felon in possession of a handgun.

Various Artists - BBC Radio 1's The Nixtape Album Review


For our American readers, no, that's not a typo. 'The Nixtape' is a regular feature on BBC Radio 1's popular 'Breakfast Show'; a weekly segment every Friday morning where an hour of music, usually consisting of classics and barely-dated hits from the 90s and earlier 00s, are played. 'BBC Radio 1's the Nixtape' is split into two discs, each with a different style. The first is a rap/hip-hop compilation, with the second being more of a club/techno/house mix. While it's all the same 'Nixtape', the styles are divergent enough to demand a separate look at each.

Various Artists - BBC Radio 1's the Nixtape Album Review

The first half of the 'Nixtape' kicks off with some vintage swag in TLC's 'Creep' and Ashanti's 'Only U', starting the first CD squarely into classic 90s hip hop, before quickly launching into more conventional rap beats like A$AP Mob's 'Trillmatic' and the enjoyably hilarious 'Shake Ya Ass' by Mystikal, all of which ooze with vintage. The second portion of the album lands the big hits of the last two decades, featuring Sean Paul's 'Get Busy', Snoop Dogg's 'Beautiful', Busta Rhymes' 'Thank You' and Notorious B.I.G's 'Mo' Money, Mo' Problems', encompassing some of the most profound hip-hop in music history. It wouldn't have been a hip-hop album without Nelly's 'Hot in Here' or 'The Way You Move' by Outkast, but the latter half of the album had fewer memorable beats. 'Welcome to Jamrock' by Damian Marley and 'Nobody to Love' by Sigma stand out amidst a number of old school rap tracks, but few of the rest stood out as being particularly memorable after the repeated punches of the big hitters made their way.

The 'Nixtape''s electronic second half isn't bad, though it's something that's going to appeal more to die-hard fans than casual listeners. There aren't quite the same identifiable groups of music within disc 2, though there are equally a few stand-out acts scattered throughout. The soothing 'Rather Be' by Clean Bandit, the ivory-tingling 'I Wanna Feel' by second SecondCity, and an infusion of pop in 'Take Care' by Rihanna and Drake prompt all but the most lethargic listener to get on their feet and move. Where the first half of the 'Nixtape' had variety, the second half runs together completely. Perhaps this is an appealing factor for fans of club music, and maybe this would make the second half of the 'Nixtape' perfect for your next dance party, but it can be difficult to stay interested in an album when the songs begin to run together so cleanly.

Singing St. Louis' Praises: Budweiser Made In America Hit Missouri In Their Music Documentary Expose

Budweiser Made In America 2014 logo

The ever overlooked St. Louis, Missouri is our next stop for the Budweiser Made in America documentary series, and an appropriate point ahead of Jay Z's music festival.

Almost every major city in the United States has some sort of musical identity which is exactly that sort of thing that inspired Jay Z to create Budweiser Made in America festival. It's all about looking at different genres from all over the country and uniting them in two major cities: Philadelphia and Los Angeles. However, there are plenty of musically rich cities out there that just barely get noticed - even in spite of some of the major stars that have come out of them.

Everything That's Wrong With The Snoop Dogg And Psy Collaboration "Hangover"


Snoop Dogg Psy Miley Cyrus Nelly Tim Mcgraw Jimmy Kimmel

In one of the oddest collaborations since Nelly gave country artist Tim Mcgraw a call and asked to bring his Louisiana drawl to the R&B track “Over And Over”, Snoop Dogg has teamed up with South Korean viral success Psy to unleash the track “Hangover” upon the world. It’s not the first time the G-funk master has produced a piece of work with an artist from disparate corners of the music world. He has previously teamed up with Miley Cyrus for the track “Ashtrays and Heartbreaks” during the rapper’s ill-conceived stint as adopting the Rastafarian lifestyle under the moniker of Snoop Lion.

Snoop Dogg at TAO nightclubSnoop Dogg and Psy's collaboration has been widely attacked by both of their respective fans.

Debuting in the US on Jimmy Kimmel Live, the video attained over 3.5 million views in 24 hours and currently boasts viewing figures of almost 25 million. But such figures are small fry for K-pop megastar Psy, who has become the first artist to break the 2 billion mark on Youtube. The video itself depicts Snoop and Psy trying various purported South Korean cures for the after effects of excessive inebriation, as well as their clips from their hedonistic exploits from the day before. As for the music itself, it contains all the tropes of Psy’s previous opus- blaring synthesizers and a skewed chorus hook designed to burrow into your brain and resolutely refuse to leave.

The History Of Nelly's 'Hot In Herre'


Nelly

You’ve been hiding under a rock if you haven’t heard about radio station KVVF’s epic PR stunt. To announce the rebranding of the station as ‘Hot 105.7’ the station have been playing Nelly’s ‘Hot in Herre’ on repeat ever since 3pm on March 14th (can you imagine the royalties that guy is raking in right now?!).

The song originally came out in 2002 (man, that makes us feel old) on Nelly’s album Nellyville. Produced by Pharrell Williams and The Neptunes, the single uses a hook from Chuck Brown’s 1979 track “Bustin’ Loose”, as well as samples from Neil Young’s “There’s a World” and Nancy Sinatra’s “As Tears Go By” cover.

Nelly

An audibly starstruck Nelly has spoken about his experiences having met one of the three women who was abducted and held for ten years in Cleveland, Ohio. Amanda Berry, 27, was sixteen years old when she disappeared on her way home. She had accepted a ride from Ariel Castro; a man who abducted her, and kept her locked in his house where he beat and raped her repeatedly during her horrific imprisonment.
