Usually I hate most of the trending topics on the internet, I can’t stand the Harambe jokes anymore, I don’t like the Arthur memes, but #SaveNelly? That hashtag is one that I can fully put my support in.
The hashtag started to trend when news broke that Nelly, one of the most beloved rappers of all time, owes $2.4 million in taxes. At first I thought, how could this happen? How could you not pay that much money to the IRS. Then I saw the hashtag #SaveNelly and #HotInHerreStreamingParty trending, and I knew I had to be a part of this movement. I may not be interested in the Presidential election that is happening because both people running are lizards, but this movement? I could be behind it.
The goal is stream any of Nelly’s music, preferably “Hot In Herre” enough to help the rapper pay off his insane debt.
Of course streaming barely pays anything so we as a country need to play “Hot In Herre” a total of 287,176,547 times, but most likely more times.
Nelly has a diamond record. Nelly had a ton of bops. Nelly needs us, we need Nelly.
Just put one of Nelly’s albums on repeat on Spotify, or whatever other streaming you can, and keep your computer on silent if you don’t want to hear it.
If there is one thing I think the internet can do, it is to play “Hot In Herre” over 200,000,000 times, together we can make Nelly great again.
