"It's getting hot in herrrrrre!" Chart topping, Grammy winning rapper Nelly is headed back to Waco, TX, and it's about to be real.

Sunday, Nov 21st, Nelly will be performing at The Backyard Stage, Bar and Grill located at 511 South 8th Street in Downtown Waco.

Nelly is known for rocking the bandanas, band aides, and white Air Force Ones. He took the world by storm in the early 2000's along with his group the St. Lunatics. He had hits for days and was always a ladies favorite.

By the way, even though he's known for promoting St. Louis and putting its hip-hop culture on the map, did you know Nelly was born right here in Texas? Yeah! He was born in Austin.

When Nelly dropped Country Grammar in 2000, the East and West Coast rap scenes dominated the airwaves and hip-hop culture. Nelly put the Midwest in the spotlight, while rappers here in his birthplace of Texas were rising to prominence as well.

Country Grammar ended up being a massive success, and that reputation propelled the follow-up album, Nellyville, straight to #1 when it was released.

Check out a few of my favorite Nelly Songs below. Did your favorite make the list? If not, sound off and let me know!

12 Rappers Who Are Also Actors

Growing up, I was always a fan of L.L.Cool J.

I even had the cassette tape of his first album and used to rewind it over and over, writing down the lyrics.

This was the mid-80s, and that was a little over 30 years ago. (Geez).

I brought up my admiration for L.L. Cool J to prove how long he has been around and to use an example of how much he has been a major contributor to the culture of hip hop, whether it's been movies, music, or TV.

Then there's Ice Cube, who is now known for his movies as opposed to his music.

Queen Latifah and Will Smith, who were hip hop stars, were also able to cross over to network TV and then to film, paving the way for hip hop artists today to do the same.

Here are 12 noteworthy rappers who are also successful actors, presented in no particular order.

(By the way, we're not ranking them, because they all have their different strengths.)
