Early Life

Nelly was born on November 2, 1974 in Austin, Texas, where his father was serving in the military.

Family

When Nelly was 7 years old, his parents divorced. Nelly moved with his mother from St. Louis to University City, Missouri when he was a teenager. When she was still in high school, Nelly formed Saint Lunatics, a hip-hop group that enjoyed local popularity with their single “Gimme What Ya Got”. Nelly decided to go it alone, after a big record deal failed to show up.

Career

Nelly began his music career with Midwest hip-hop band Saint Lunatics, in 1993 and signed to Universal Records in 1999.

The album debuted at number three on the Billboard 200 and went to the top at number one. Country Grammar is Nellie’s best-selling album to date, selling over 8.4 million copies in the United States. His next album Nellyville spawned his debut singles “Hot in Herre” and “Dilemma” (featuring Kelly Rowland).

Nelly runs the non-profit 4Sho4Kids Foundation. The Jes Us 4 Jackie campaign was started in March 2003 by Nelly and his sister Jackie Donahoe after Donahue was diagnosed with leukemia. The campaign is trying to educate African Americans and other minorities about the need for a bone marrow transplant, and to enroll more donors.

Donahoe lost her battle with leukemia on March 24, 2005, nearly two years after the campaign began. In 2010, Nelly endorsed the Do Something’s Tackle Hunger campaign. In a public service announcement he filmed for the cause, Nelly challenges teens to fight hunger by collecting a million pounds of food for the holiday season.
