Nelly Net Worth $65 Million

While studying in high school in 1993, Nelly together with Kyjuan, City Spud, Ali and Murphy Lee formed the hip hop group called ‘St. Lunatics’ thus opening Nelly’s net worth account. As the band’s career was not as successful as expected Nelly made a decision to begin a solo career. Nelly has released his first studio album ‘Country Grammar’ in 2000 under the label of Universal. The album increased Nelly’s net worth very significantly as the album was certified nine times platinum. Moreover, his second album ‘Nellyville’ was even more successful bringing fame and adding much to Nelly’s wealth and net worth. This album debuted at the first place on Billboard’s Top 200 Music Albums and received the certification being six times multiplatinum. Despite other famous awards ‘Nellyville’ received the Album of the Year nomination and Nelly won an award for the Best Male Rap Solo Performance and the Best Rap/Sung Collaboration for two singles from this album at the Grammy Awards in 2003. A year later Nelly won the Grammy Award again for the Best Rap Performance by a Duo or Group for his and Bad Boys II collaboration in a song called ‘Shake Ya Tailfeather. Due to a great demand, Nelly has released two albums in 2004 named ‘Sweat’ and ‘Suit’. Later on, Nelly increased his net worth releasing an album together with ‘St. Lunatics’ named ‘Who’s the Boss’ in 2006 and solo albums as follows ‘Brass Kunckles’ in 2008, ‘5.0’ in 2010 and ‘M.O’ in 2013. Despite Nelly’s outstanding career as a singer he also took part in several films including a leading role in ‘Snipes’ directed by Rich Murray, the supportive role in ‘The Longest Yard’ directed by Peter Segal where he also sang on the soundtrack. Nelly played in the episodes of ‘Crime Scene Investigation: New York’ and made the cameo appearance in ‘90210’ and ‘T.I. and Tiny: The Family Hustle’ also showed up in reality television series ‘The Next: Fame Is at Your Doorstep’. Now, he is listed as a supportive actor of the upcoming drama film ‘Reach Me’ directed and written by John Herzfeld.

Nelly has established charity organization 4Sho4Kids Foundation which helps sick children also educates people about the diseases and the use of transplants in order to have more donors. He has signed business contracts with companies like Nike, Reebok, Ford Motor. Nelly is the owner of Apple Bottoms, former owner of the Charlotte Bobcats.
