"Anyone who listens to the radio should remember hearing "Country Grammar", "E.I.", "Ride Wit' Me", and "Batter Up" on any given station when Nelly first debuted in 2000. He created quite a buzz when he first came out because he was a rapper but he wasn't talking about killing you, stealing from you or anything of that nature. He rapped about lighter subjects like sitting next to Vanna White on airplanes, getting paid off of country grammar and hanging with his friends, The Saint Lunatics.
"Country Grammar" is a decent album, but the only song that truly impressed me was "Ride Wit' Me." There are some other mentionable moments, but that's definitely one of his finest tracks to date. "Ride Wit' Me" has an amazing beat and melody. It defines "rider music" because of its laid back feel. The title track is another song worth mentioning. When this song debuted, I don't know how many people I heard singing that unforgettable hook. And who could forget the video which featured Nelly getting down in his Saint Louis Rams jersey and matching sneakers. "Greed, Hate and Envy" and "Tho Dem Wrappas" are alright songs, but not in any way memorable. Nelly lyrics are definitely not top notch. In fact, his rhymes are pretty weak often times. But what makes people continue to listen to him is his energetic delivery and inflections. He is a bit different from the average rapper because he makes plenty of party songs. Production-wise, there is nothing special about this album.
As a unit, this album is remotely enjoyable. If you were to purchase it, you would find a couple of numbers you liked, but you would also find dull moments. In all honesty, you want to purchase this one at your own risk.
Mikeisha's Top 5
