Nelly The King Of St. Louis

Posted By on February 21, 2007

Rapper Nelly hasn't released a CD since 2004's double release, Sweat and Suit, but he's still St. Louis' all-time best selling artist. Nelly has sold more than 22 million records world wide – more than St. Louis natives Chuck Berry, Tina Turner and jazz legend Miles Davis combined. Additionally, the rapper's 2000 release Country Grammar has sold over 9 million copies, making it the biggest album to ever come out of St. Louis. Sheryl Crow is the region's best-selling female artist, with 16 million records sold.
