Nelly is the latest Hip Hop celebrity to be hit with a big tax lien from the IRS. The St. Louis representer owes Uncle Sam more than two million dollars in back taxes.

TMZ reports:

Nelly might wanna tighten his belt, he’s staring down one of the biggest celeb tax liens we’ve ever seen … topping the $2 mil mark!

Uncle Sam nailed Nelly with a $2,412,283 federal tax lien in August. The tab is so big, the IRS could start seizing his assets and property.

He’s also got state tax trouble — earlier this year, the Missouri Department of Revenue said the St. Louis rapper owed $149,511 in unpaid state taxes from 2013. He originally owed a mere $113,533 … but interest is a b*tch.

Sources close to Nelly tell us he’s already working with the tax authorities to resolve the issues.

Nelly is not the “#1” when it comes to rappers having issues with the IRS. Lil Wayne, Lauryn Hill, Fat Joe and Iggy Azalea have all been hit with liens this year alone.
