Hip-hop artist Nelly performs at Madison Square Garden on June 21, 2015 in New York City.

*Fans no longer have to worry about Nelly’s financial situation.

The rapper and reality star has signed a development deal with Fox and will join its cable sports channel FS1 as a contributor to “Skip and Shannon: Undisputed,” according to Billboard.com. He’ll begin appearing alongside Skip Bayless, Shannon Sharpe and moderator Joy Taylor on Tuesday, Nov. 1 at 9:30 a.m. ET.

The news comes one month after a $2.4 million tax lien was levied against the artist, and fans took to Spotifybelieving the constant streaming of his song “Hot in Herre” would help pay the bill.

The St. Louis native, however, has other revenue sources. He is part owner of the NBA’s Charlotte Hornets and stars in two TV shows: BET’s reality series “Nellyville” and Kevin Hart’s comedy parody “Real Husbands of Hollywood.”

“Skip and Shannon: Undisputed,” which features the theme song “No Mercy” from Lil Wayne, delves into sports’ trending topics weekdays from 9:30 am to 12 p.m. ET.
