Hip-hop sensations Nelly and Vanilla Ice have been booked to perform at the Jackson County Fair on Tuesday, August 9th, 2016 at 7 p.m.
American rapper, singer, and songwriter Nelly made his debut in 2000, with his Grammy-nominated album Country Grammar, which spent five weeks at #1 on Billboard Top 200. In 2002, Nelly put his first two Grammy Awards under his belt when “Hot In Herre” broke the charts in 2002, and Nellyville went six times platinum. Beyond music, Nelly is a man of many ventures. He has created two different clothing lines, partnered with Nike to create a limited edition sneaker for the brand and is CEO of his own record label, Derrty Ent. Nelly currently stars in his own television show, Nellyville, which finished airing its second season on BET. Fans have been held over by a handful of singles and remixes since Nelly’s seventh studio album M.O. was released in 2013, while they await his eighth studio album release.
Vanilla Ice made his presence known as a rap/pop artist on the rise in 1990, and soon hit #1 on the Billboard charts with “Ice Ice Baby”. Vanilla Ice has toured around the world, and is a recipient of two MTV Awards and a People’s Choice Award. He has also tried his hand in the film industry, and has starred in a number of movies, television series, and commercials.
