TIMELINE

  • NellyNelly was born Cornell Iral Haynes, Jr. in Texas and hails from St. Louis, Missouri. Nelly's desire to become a famous rapper began to come true in 1993 when he formed 'St. Lunatics' with Kyjun, Murphy Lee, Ali, Jason, and City Spud. It took 3 years, but the group eventually found some success with the 12" single "Gimme What Ya Got." The group decided that more success for them may happen quicker if Nelly was viewed as a solo artist. The decision worked with Nelly landing a record contract with Universal Records. Nelly also became known for his philanthropy working to increase awareness and rally support for bone marrow donations. The efforts are in honor of his sister who suffered from leukemia.
