Nelly is in debt to the IRS for over $2 million, and his fans have rallied together to help him out. Fans are now trying to dwindle Nelly's $2.4 million tax lien by listening to "Hot in Herre" over and over again.

On Monday the #HotInHerreStreamingParty took over social media and had people offering all sorts of tips to maximize their streams:

But how many streams does it take to get to the center of an IRS debt? According to Spin, a boatload. If we're looking at how Spotify pays people $0.006 to $0.0084 per stream, Nelly would need at least 287,176,547 to get the IRS off his back. But that doesn't even include loyalties and publishing that has to be paid, too.

Yeah, good luck with that. But I guess it's good to be rich and to have fans.
