Diamond Selling, Multi-platinum, Grammy award-winning rap superstar, entrepreneur, philanthropist, and actor, Nelly, has continually raised the bar for the entertainment industry since stepping on the scene in 2000 with his distinctive vocals and larger-than-life personality. Nelly entered the spotlight with the release of Country Grammar in 2000, spending seven weeks at #1 on the Billboard Top 200 and spawning the massive hits “Ride Wit Me”, “Country Grammar”, and “E.I.”. The album landed Nelly four Grammy Award nominations and sold over nine million copies worldwide. Nelly kept the momentum going with the 2002 release of Nellyville. The album debuted at #1 on top of scoring Nelly his first two Grammy Awards for “Hot in Here” – Best Male Rap Solo Performance – and “Dilemma” [feat. Kelly Rowland] – Best Rap Song Collaboration. He has since gone on to win multiple American Music Awards, a Nickelodeon Kids’ Choice Award, Soul Train Music Awards, MTV Video Music Awards, and was crowned “Top Pop, Rap, and R&B/Hip-Hop Artist of The Year” by Billboard.
Labeled the Jay-Z of the South by Pharrell Williams and the creator of Trap Muzik, T.I. undoubtedly possesses all the qualities and has the accolades to back them up as an artist, songwriter, philanthropist, and entrepreneur. With over 35 million followers on social media, 3 Grammy Awards and 4 #1 hit records, and 11 top ten hits like “Dead and Gone”, “Live Your Life”, and "Whatever You Like” under his belt, it’s easy to see why T.I. has enjoyed continued success as a recording and touring artist for the last 20 years. Outside of music, T.I. has also starred in countless blockbuster movies and top-rated television shows including ATL, American Gangster, Marvel's Ant-Man, and VH-1's T.I. & Tiny: The Family Hustle.
