Fans stream Nelly to help him pay off $2.4 million debt

Published On September 14, 2016 | By Kendal Malewicz | Entertainment News

NELLY reportedly owes the IRS over $2.4 million, and the Internet has responded with a #SaveNelly movement.  Basically, fans are streaming the heck out of Nelly songs . . . trying to help him raise the money to pay off Uncle Sam.

The thing is, artists make almost NOTHING from streams, so a crowdfunding campaign would’ve been better.  A payout for a single stream is LESS than a penny, between $0.006 and $0.0084.

So, Nelly would need people to stream “Hot in Herre” more than 287 MILLION TIMES to pay off the debt . . . and that’s IF he’s lucky enough to get the richer end of the payout range.  If not, he’ll need closer to 500 MILLION to cover it.
