Nelly is one of the celebrity mentors in The CW's reality singing competition series "The Next: Fame Is at Your Doorstep."

Nelly, who will be releasing his highly-anticipated sixth studio album in fall 2012, charged onto the hip-hop scene in the summer of 2000 with his groundbreaking debut album, "Country Grammar," much to the delight of the legions of fans that now rank him among hip-hop's premier artists. Ranked No. 3 on Billboard's definitive list of the best-selling artists of the 2000s, Nelly has not only sold more than 30 million albums/singles, but he also tied with Elton John for the most consecutive weeks at No. 1 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart by a male solo artist.

Beyond music, Nelly also released a fitness DVD called "Celebrity Sweat" in September 2010, and his hugely successful Apple Bottoms clothing line for women has expanded to include fragrance, handbags and accessories, footwear, intimates, swimsuits, plus sizes, scrubs, sunglasses, optical, jewelry, girls wear, and infant apparel. In addition to recently acquiring the rights to the Troop clothing line, Nelly is the CEO of his own label, Derrty Ent., co-owner of the Charlotte Bobcats NBA expansion team, and founder of two non-profit organizations, 4Sho4Kids and Jes Us 4 Jackie.
