Why is it getting so Hot In Herre, all of the sudden?
Nelly fans are streaming the 2002 hit about stripping down in the heat as a way to help the rapper make some extra money, and are encouraging others to do the same on social media. The idea originated with a SPIN magazine story claiming the hit song would need to be streamed 287 million times in order to pay down a hefty IRS bill reported byTMZ.
Citizens of Nellyville have taken action.
