Rap star Nelly was apparently in town earlier this week, and he made it rain in a local strip club, according to TMZ.

The gossip site reports that Nelly hit up V Live off Stemmons on Monday night (and into the wee hours Tuesday, we presume) and dropped $31,000 worth of singles in the place. You can see the video on TMZ's site. But do you really want to?

No word on why Nelly was in town. The last time he performed here was in May, on tour with TLC and New Kids on the Block. Update: Central Track has solved the mystery -- Nelly was in town for an appearance Sunday at the Rio Room in Uptown.
