New Kids On The Block Perform At The Tacoma Dome

How many “Hot In Here” downloads does it take to get St. Louis rapper Nelly out of debt?

Over 287 million.

Fans rallied around the midwestern lyricist after word spread that the reality dad slipped into some serious debt. TMZ reported the Nellyville artist is over $2 million in the gutter with the IRS.

When news hit, a social media funding campaign hit Twitter to encourage downloads of his hit song to help the rapper break even with the government.

We will see if this social rally helps the rapper get out of his tax debt.
