Twitter is a place for good, not just evil trolling.
After TMZ reported that Nelly owes $2,412,283 in back taxes and SPIN calculated that it would take 287,176,547 streams on Spotify or another similar streaming service to get him out of debt, the rapper's fans on social media proved they're up to the challenge. Let's just say, if you hear "Hot In Herre" bumping from every car or pair of earphones on your way home from work today, you know why.
If this doesn't affirm your faith in humanity, nothing will:
