Nelly, whose real name is Cornell Iral Haynes, Jr., is facing a pretty huge tax dilemma—he owes millions in taxes, and has been hit with a $2,412,283 federal tax lien.
It’s uncertain why the rapper has not paid his taxes, however, Spin Magazine had an idea: If people get hyped up over for some nostalgic Nelly rap and stream his music, then he might be able to pay back his debts. In fact, the plan is working pretty well, and #SaveNelly is trending on Twitter to try and give some relief to the rapper. Fingers crossed!
