'''Marc Nelson''' (born on January 23, 1971 in [[Philadelphia, Pennsylvania]]) is an American singer. His mother was the late R&B/Dance singer [[Phyllis Nelson]], known for the songs 'I Like You' and 'Move Closer'. He was an original member of [[Boyz II Men]] while still attending Philadelphia's High School of Performing Arts. However, Nelson left the group before they released their first album to pursue his own solo career.

'''Marc Nelson''' (born [[Philadelphia]], [[Pennsylvania]]) is an American patriot, and self-proclaimed "ill house DJ" who has yet to book a gig as such. He also shamelessly and obviously created his own Wikipedia page since his breadth of celebrity is metaphorically comparable to a shriveled cat member. Nelson also has an affinity for heinous shirts, as evidenced by the photograph to the right. His mother was [[Phyllis Nelson]], known for the songs ''I Like You (If You Have Some Blow)'' and ''[[Move Closer to My Breasts--I Promise They Won't Smell Like Butt No Mo']]''. He was a member of [[Boyz II Men]] while still attending Philadelphia's High School of Performing Arts. However, Nelson left the group before they released their first album to pursue his own solo career, marking what can only be recognized as the defining moment in what has become an existence devoid of purpose. Nelson is a member of the [[Church of Scientology]], which should hold no meaning if you read the sentence about him leaving Boyz II Men, because who really cares what the guy who left Boyz II Men believes in anyway. It's just unfortunate for a religion already regarded as terrible to have a steaming waste of flesh like Marc Nelson claim allegiance to it.
   
After signing a solo deal with Capitol Records, Marc Nelson scored a hit with a cover of Marvin Gaye's I Want You, which hit #26 on the R&B charts. His follow-up, Count On Me, reached #48 on the R&B charts. Nelson released his solo album, I Want You. in 1991.
+
After signing a solo deal with [[Capitol Records]], Marc Nelson recorded a cover of [[Marvin Gaye]]'s ''I Want You'' on one of those old tape recorders with the red "REC" button and the rotary volume control. Then he ate some waffles, took a dump, and fondled his gonads in the basement while lip-syncing to Boyz II Men's "Water Runs Dry".
   
Following the release of his solo album, Nelson began to concentrate his talents as a songwriter. Drawing the attention of Babyface, Nelson wrote for artists like Toni Braxton, Brandy, Tamia, Tyrese and Jon B. Through Babyface, Nelson met the four members of the group Az Yet and was added to the line-up as second lead vocalist and the group was signed to LaFace Records.
 
  +
After a group of eleven neighborhood children dropped a collective deuce on the dashboard of Nelson's Ford Probe, burned the words "abject failure" into its hood with battery acid, and tried to garrote him as he stumbled drunkenly through the streets one night claiming that Keith Sweat was his evil twin, Nelson relocated to Atlanta, telling his hypnotherapist that he had signed a record deal with [[Kenneth "Babyface" Edmonds| Babyface]]. This was a lie. Upon his arrival in Atlanta, Nelson made the mistake of telling a waitress at Waffle House that he was an original member of Boyz II Men and had left the group willingly just before their meteoric rise to fame. She said that she would be right back with his order, then secretly gathered the other patrons and employees to tell them Nelson’s story. She conducted a poll on how best to run Nelson out of their city before the stench of his failure could affect the local economy, and after a landslide vote, the angry mob descended on Nelson, brandishing handfuls of their own excrement, which they smeared all over his hair and clothes, being extra careful to get it deep into his ears and down inside the back of his shirt. Members of the group who were not able to defecate before the attack winged microwaved cups of their own scalding-hot urine at Nelson's face and eyes, "forever marking this human pile of refuse," stated Chelsea, the diner's cashier.
   
As a member of Az Yet, Nelson saw a great deal of success. The group's self-titled debut album was released in 1996 and went platinum. It had a great deal of success with the single Last Night going gold and topping the R&B charts. In addition, it reached #9 on the Hot 100. Their second single, Hard To Say I'm Sorry did even better, going platinum and reaching #8 on the Hot 100.
 
  +
Nelson relocated to Muncie, Indiana two days later where he currently resides with a Sopranos: Season 2 VHS box set and a poster of Wanya Morris. He has developed a dependency on cheap cough medicine and claims that he can "smell the evil".
   
Nelson left the group after being driven away by the business end of things. He began writing intensely and then, when satisfied with what he'd produced, returned to his solo career once more. He released a second album, Chocolate Mood, in 1999. The album featured Nelson's biggest solo hit 15 Minutes, which reached #4 on the R&B charts and #27 on the Hot 100.

On January 9, 2007, Nelson was honored by SESAC at their third Jazz Awards Luncheon for his authorship on "It's On Tonight" by Brian Culbertson. The event honored jazz writers whose works achieved Top 5 status on the jazz charts from January 1, 2006 through December 31, 2006.<ref>[http://sesac.com/Events/awards/jazz07.aspx "SESAC Jazz Awards Luncheon 2007"]</ref>
 
 
Nelson released his first independent project, "Marc: My Words" (Lyric Masters 911) on July 24, 2007. Nelson wrote or co-wrote the lyrics on all 15 tracks of the album. He also produced all of the tracks on the album with several of the tracks co-produced by others. Nelson extracted the material for the release from his existing catalog of songs written between 2001 and 2007 and began recording the material in 2006. The album features the original version of "I Don't Wanna Be In Love" (co-written by jazz artist Brian Culbertson) which also appears on the 2007 release "Crystal City" by Andre Ward.
 
 
Nelson was also a founding member of the R&B super-group Blayse with fellow R&B veterans Tony Grant of Az Yet, Gary "Lil G" Jenkins of Silk and Terrell Phillips of Blackstreet. Although the group managed to record several songs, the recordings were never publicly released, the album was never completed, and the group disbanded in December 2007. Lil G left Blayse to return to Silk and Nelson left to return to Az Yet. Tony Grant toured in the Tyler Perry stage production "The Marriage Counselor" from January 2008 through May 2008.

Marc Nelson (born Philadelphia, Pennsylvania) is an American patriot, and self-proclaimed "ill house DJ" who has yet to book a gig as such. He also shamelessly and obviously created his own Wikipedia page since his breadth of celebrity is metaphorically comparable to a shriveled cat member. Nelson also has an affinity for heinous shirts, as evidenced by the photograph to the right. His mother was Phyllis Nelson, known for the songs I Like You (If You Have Some Blow) and Move Closer to My Breasts--I Promise They Won't Smell Like Butt No Mo'. He was a member of Boyz II Men while still attending Philadelphia's High School of Performing Arts. However, Nelson left the group before they released their first album to pursue his own solo career, marking what can only be recognized as the defining moment in what has become an existence devoid of purpose. Nelson is a member of the Church of Scientology, which should hold no meaning if you read the sentence about him leaving Boyz II Men, because who really cares what the guy who left Boyz II Men believes in anyway. It's just unfortunate for a religion already regarded as terrible to have a steaming waste of flesh like Marc Nelson claim allegiance to it.

After signing a solo deal with Capitol Records, Marc Nelson recorded a cover of Marvin Gaye's I Want You on one of those old tape recorders with the red "REC" button and the rotary volume control. Then he ate some waffles, took a dump, and fondled his gonads in the basement while lip-syncing to Boyz II Men's "Water Runs Dry".

After a group of eleven neighborhood children dropped a collective deuce on the dashboard of Nelson's Ford Probe, burned the words "abject failure" into its hood with battery acid, and tried to garrote him as he stumbled drunkenly through the streets one night claiming that Keith Sweat was his evil twin, Nelson relocated to Atlanta, telling his hypnotherapist that he had signed a record deal with Babyface.

Nelson relocated to Muncie, Indiana two days later where he currently resides with a Sopranos: Season 2 VHS box set and a poster of Wanya Morris. He has developed a dependency on cheap cough medicine and claims that he can "smell the evil".
