One of the biggest rappers of the 00s, Nelly has racked up dozens of chart hits by blending his distinctive Midwestern drawl with a melodic fusion of hip-hop, R&B and pop. Born Cornell Iral Haynes, Jr in Austin, Texas in 1974, Nelly formed the hip-hop crew, St. Lunatics, while at high school, before signing a solo deal with Universal in 2000. Later that year, he released his debut album, Country Grammar, which thanks to the success of singles “Ride Wit Me,” “E.I.” and the title track, sold nearly nine million copies in the US alone. St. Lunatics’ first studio effort, Free City, arrived a year later, and was followed by Nelly’s acting debut in the hip-hop drama Snipes, and guest spots on hits by Jagged Edge and ‘N Sync. The latter’s Justin Timberlake then returned the favor on Nelly’s 2002 sophomore, Nellyville, which like its predecessor reached number one, and spawned two chart-topping singles in the shape of the Grammy-winning “Hot In Herre” and Kelly Rowland duet, “Dilemma.” Nelly’s purple patch continued in 2003 when Bad Boys II soundtrack cut “Shake Ya Tailfeather” also hit the top spot, and a year later he occupied the top two positions on the Billboard 200 with the R&B-themed Suit and hip-hop-focused Sweat, both of which were released on the same day. In 2005, Nelly returned to the big screen to star in Adam Sandler comedy The Longest Yard and scored yet another number one with a track from his Sweatsuit compilation, “Grillz.” Nelly kept relatively quiet throughout the next three years but picked up where he left off in 2008 with fifth album Brass Knuckles, adding to his tally of chart smashes with collaborations with Fergie and Akon. Keri Hilson, Chris Brown and T.I. were just some of the guest stars who appeared on 2010’s 5.0., which was then followed by Nelly’s first ever official mixtape, O.E.MO., and a more pop-oriented seventh LP, 2013’s M.O. Having previously scored a massive hit with Tim McGraw duet “Over and Over,” Nelly then made another unlikely move into the country genre when he teamed up with Florida Georgia Line on a remix of their breakthrough single “Cruise,” before adding hip-hop mogul E-Ruption in interweaving drama Reach Me and police officer Glen Donner in mystery thriller A Fall From Grace to his list of acting credits.
