Exclusive: Grammy-Winning Rap Star Nelly To Visit 90210

Grammy-winning recording artist Nelly — whose “Just A Dream” recently topped Billboard’s Pop Songs chart — will hang with members of the West Bev crowd when he guest-stars on The CW’s 90210.

The rap star will appear as himself in an episode airing early next year, when Dixon (played by Tristan Wilds) and Navid (Michael Steger) get wrapped up in the music video shoot for the song “She’s So Fly,” which like “Just A Dream” is off Nelly’s brand-new 5.0 album.

Nelly is but the latest recording artist to pop up on 90210, which in the past has welcomed the likes of The Veronicas, The Script and N.E.R.D. And make no mistake, he is no stranger to acting, having recurred on CBS’ CSI: NY as police informant Terrence Davis.

Now in its third season, The CW’s 90210 airs Mondays at 8/7c.
