Why mess with a good thing? That's Nelly's M.O. on his sophomore disc, Nellyville, which makes the most of the same catchy, nursery-rhyme style flow that propelled his debut album, Country Grammar, to multi-platinum status. The St. Louis rapper also sticks to the same subject matter with a new batch of tunes about partying, dodging haters, and kickin' it with the ladies. Adding to its appeal, Nellyville is peopled with an A-list of guest stars, including Justin Timberlake on the wah-wah guitar-accented "Work It" (perhaps returning the favor for Nelly's appearance on 'N Sync's "Girlfriend" remix, which earned the boy band more urban radio airplay), Kelly Rowland of Destiny's Child on the Bone Thugs-N-Harmony-reminiscent ballad "Dilemma," and hit makers the Neptunes, who contribute their signature, highly electronic production work to the go-go-inspired single "Hot in Herre." Still, in an effort to defend his street cred, Nelly comes through hard on "Roc the Mic (Remix)," which features Rockfella Beanie Sigel and takes a humorous jab at old-school rapper KRS-One. But even when he's trying to play the bad boy, Nelly is still one of rap's music most jovial MCs. So if you like your hip-hop danceable and lighthearted, you'll enjoy the ride to Nellyville.

I think that Nelly's newest album entitled "Nellyville", is a great compilation. Nelly, in my opinion, is a great all-around artist. I like how he brings his whole crew, the St.Lunatics, onto his album to help promote them. I also like how he gives proper respect to St.Louis, his hometown, on every single song. In this album Nelly isn't letting people talk bad about him and get away with it. "I strike a nerve in old MC's wantin a comeback I got the strength that he's lost and that's fact."These are lyrics that were supposed to be a comeback on KRS-1. KRS-1 said some stuff about Nelly that he didn't like and got back at them with these lyrics. Then KRS-1 said some more stuff about Nelly and claimed that they were the best rappers. Nelly put his comebacks in his hit song #1. Another thing that I like about Nelly is that he raps to some very nice beats in his songs. Some of poeple's favorite songs are Dilemma, Hot in Herre, and Air Force Ones. My personal favorite song on the album is CG2 (Country Grammer #2). Some of the very few things that I didn't like was that you don't get to hear by himself a lot; he has cameos in almost all of his songs. I also think that Nelly should do more tracks with female artist, as he did with Kelly Rowland in Dilemma. Another thing that I would like to see is Nelly doing more remixes like he did with the "Roc the Mic" remix. Anyway, I thought that this was a great overall album.

Nellyville is the greatest c.d. i own! nelly is so hot and he has the best music! i think everyone should buy it!

Although Nellyville is good overall, there is far too little Nelly on this album. That being said, his duo with Kelly Rowland in Dilemma is ultratight, easily the highlight of the album. Without a doubt, this album secures Nelly's status as the King of Hip Pop.

What's up with people giving this album 5 stars, that aint right. This album is decent, just like his first one, but its lacking a real bumping track like ''country grammer (hot s***)'' This album just sounds way too pop, especially with an appearance from Justin Timberlake from 'nsync. What the heck was nelly thinking? Well i guess nelly aint really more of a thug than timerlake anyways. The bottom line is that nelly is just a sellout and this album is more pop than it is hip hop, but im sure it will still sell atleast 5 mil cause all these trl kids are gonna buy it like crazy.

Another recommendation from Head Cashier in the Woodinville, WA store. We used some of this music for a Ladies Night Out party with firemen from a recent calendar shoot. The Ladies loved it. Caroline's recommendation was spot on............. Sandy Johnson

Y'all need to cop this album outright. It's totally worth the seventeen-zillion dollars I paid at Sam Goody! >:( Oh well. Tracks #1-19 are the best so far. :) BUY THIS.

Hey...I've heard the pre released choruses of all of Nelly's new songs on Nellyville...they are so good! He has more of an R&B feel to em than his last album. Still, it's tight. If you liked ''Luven Me'' and ''Utha Side'' on Country Grammar, you'll love this album.
Guest More than 1 year ago
My Boo (Nelly aka Cornell Haynes Jr.) is the best! And Nellyville is a tight new joint! Everybody should get it!

Country Grammar was the hottest debut CD by any artist. How does Nelly follow up to that? He makes the hottest and most anticipated album of the summer. With the release of his #1 single ''Hot In Herre'' and the soon to be #1 song ''Dilemma'' there is plebty of songs to be put up as #1 jams. 4 Sho dirty. If you dont got this album then go cop it soon. E.I.

If you are looking for the ideal summer album, ¿Nellyville¿ is for you. With this follow-up to his first hit album, ¿Country Grammer,¿ Nelly has brought forth a whole new group of sure-fire hits that will have everyone on the dance floors. With tracks like ¿Dilemma¿ and ¿Work It¿, featuring Kelly Rowland from Destiny¿s Child and Justin Timberlake from `NSYNC, this album brings Pop to Hip-Hop and broadens the horizons for all fans of music. An exciting element of the CD is that it also has a new feature called the ¿VIP Backstage Pass¿ which offers exclusive content to those who purchase the CD, such as remixes of songs and videos that can only be seen through the Backstage Pass. Hot tracks and cool insider info¿ ¿Nellyville¿ certainly has a lot to offer to anyone ready for a good time.

Truthfully, i was quite dissapointed wit this album. It definitely isnt five star material. ''Country Grammar'' & ''Free City'' was better than this in my opinion. I felt the album had too many slow songs. But it still does have some decent cuts on it, dont get me wrong. ''Dilemma'' quickly caught my hear. Also ''oh nelly'' ''roc the mic'' ''Cg2'' Peace OUT!!!
