Overview

Now that the Dirty South has shifted attention away from the East Coast-West Coast axis, hip-hop prospects are rising from points all across the map. COUNTRY GRAMMAR, the debut disc by Nelly, introduces the hip-hop world to the sound and slang of St. Louis, a Midwestern city affectionately called "the Lou" or "the Arch." Pumped full of hyperactive beats like those of Hot Boys production wizard Mannie Fresh, COUNTRY GRAMMAR will appeal to fans of Juvenile's Cash Money crew. Nelly, however, spices up the 808, electro-funk with tasty samples, acoustic guitars, and live percussion. While most of the tracks are built around R&B hooks, Nelly proves on "Ride Wit Me" that he's got enough pop sensibility to gain radio airplay. And with a flow that alternately tackles rugged street stories ("Greed, Hate, & Envy"), bouncy, club-worthy cuts ("St. Louie"), and thug-redemption slow-jams ("Lovin' Me"), Nelly is an all-around crowd pleaser. So ya heard. Don't sleep on St. Louie. Michael Endelman

There's a lot of hardcore rap out there, but the rapper who really re-invented the meaning of hardcore rap was Nelly. When he came out I really didn't know what to expect, mostly because I listen to a wide variety of music and most of the hardcore stuff I've heard wasn't all that it's cracked up to be. But when Nelly came out I bought the album just for laughs, only to see that it was great. The down n' dirty songs like ''Country Grammer'' and ''E.I.'' dominate, but then there's songs like ''Ride Wit Me'' that ease off a little. Overall, this is great!

Nelly is a sensational hit among hip-hop kids right now, maybe its the way he raps or the beats in his song. He has proven that he can hold his own when it comes to the hip-hop scene.

Nelly's c.d. Country Grammar is one of the best c.d's that I've heard in a while. He takes on the rap world with his new mid-western style. My favorite tracks on this c.d is ''Luven Me'' and ''Batter Up.'' Each of these songs have a beat that lures you in, also like every song on Country Grammar. Every lyric actually means something. Unlike many other rappers out there he makes sense and doesn't sound like a bunch of boys screaming and shouting to try to get their ''point'' across. Nelly also features on the upcoming St. Lunatics (his group from back in he day). Basically it's like this..Nelly is the next hot thing out there!

Nelly has really been an inspiration to me. I don't ever remember being a fan of someone this much. His CD is really very good and it is better than we think if you just sit down and listen to it, you will fall in love just like I did. Nelly keep doing your thing. Mad love here for you, fo shoe' E.I.

I have to admit, I would've bought this CD no matter what...Nelly (or Cornell as he was back in the day) and I went to school together at U. CITY HIGH in St. Louis. He is blowin' up! Look out for the St. Lunatics release..that's where it all started with 'Gimme What You Got'!

The Nelly cd is the bomb to listen to. Almost all the songs are cool and the cd never gets old. Country Grammar, Batter Up, and E.I. are my favorites.
