Nelly and fellow hip-hop star Jermaine Dupri have donated more than $10,000 (GBP5,500) to needy children, after spending the same amount of cash at a strip club.

The HOT IN HERRE rapper recently revealed to fans at a New York City gig earlier this week (ends25NOV05) that he and Dupri were wracked with guilt after spending the huge amount of cash in a single night of revelry.

And to address the issue, the pair got together the following day to match the amount buying toys and delivering them to disadvantaged children.
