Cornell Haynes Jr. is how the very well-known hip hop artist Nelly is really named.  He was born in St. Louis, Missouri on November 2, 1974.  Today, Nelly, a 32 year-old man, has two children, which are called Chanel, who is 10, and Cornell Haynes Jr. AKA Tre, 7.  On March, 2005, his sister Jackie died of leukemia.  Due to this reason, Nelly started a foundation for this illness.  Another Nelly’s facet corresponds to his acting career.  In 2002, he appeared in Snipes, an independent film.  Nonetheless, Nelly is best known for his really successful career in the field R&B and Rap.

Thus, Nelly debuted with an album called Country Grammar in 2002.  Without a doubt, this album got to be so incredibly successful that it reached #1 on The Billboard 2002 and on The R&B/Hip-Hop Albums, and #10 on the Top Internet Albums since he sold more than eight million copies.  Two years later, he launched two albums simultaneously.  These are called Sweet, which is a rap album that went platinum, and Suit, an R&B-style one.  Amazingly, both albums, on the very same week, debuted #2 and #1 respectively.

Throughout his artistic career, Nelly has won three Grammies and has been nominated 10 times, including Best Album Rap (2001), Best Rap Solo Performance (2001), Best Rap/Sung Collaboration (2002), Album of the Year (2003) and Record of the Year (2003).  The three awards he won are Best Rap/Sung Collaboration (2003), Best Male Rap Solo Performance (2003) and Best Rap Performance By a Duo or Group (2004).  Therefore, it is impossible to mention all the success he has experienced due to his high-quality productions.  However, what really matters is that Nelly is considered to be one of the best R&B and Rap artists ever.
