5.0 out of 5 stars A Look Into Nellyville (6/26/02) June 26, 2002
Format:Audio CD
Cornell Haynes is back with his follow-up to his multi-platinum LP "Country Grammar." This time he introduces us to his utopian world he calls "Nellyville." Nelly's vocals along with beats from probably THE most underrated hip-hop producer, Jason Epperson (Jay E.) look to make this album just as successful as his first. Guest spots on "Nellyville" include "Country Grammar" skit man, Cedric The Entertainer, LaLa (I believe to be the same LaLa from MTV's Direct Effect), King Jacob, *NSync'er Justin Timberlake, Destiny Child's Kelly Rowland, Beanie Sigel, Freeway, and also, of course, his fellow St. Lunatics (Murphy Lee, Ali, & Kyjuan).
Track by Track Review:
1. "Nellyville": Pretty solid track in which the Mayor Of Nellyville, Nelly, explains this hip-hop star utopia. I don't think it would make a strong single, but it would be interesting to see a video for this one. Ranking: 7 out of 10
2. "Gettin' It Started"(Skit): Ced the Entertainer try's to show his game with LaLa, but fails to fulfill her want for the "Nellyville" CD. Not that funny of a skit, except for the Akinyele comment by Ced. Nelly should have used the same concept as the "Country Grammar" skit sequences. Also, since when is a song the first track on an album and a skit the second.... 4 out of 10
3. "Hot In Herre": Probably the most overplayed song everywhere in the world currently, but, the Neptunes produced track still is a pretty hot track which is a good first single for this album. 8 out of 10
4. "Dem Boyz": Nelly and the rest of the Tics put this one together and it seems to be their theme song of sorts. But, this song seems to cut short at the end, most likely for needed space on the CD. 6 out of 10
5. "Oh Nelly": A catchy hook by the Lunatic's next big thing: Murphy Lee, and a phat beat by Jay E.

2.0 out of 5 stars There's No Way I can Explain This Album September 18, 2002
By "r-a-h"
Format:Audio CD
After purchasing Nelly's first album, "Country Grammar" and the St. Lunatics' "Free City," and not being able to stop listening to it, I was really anxious for "Nellyville" to come out. And yet, what a surprise, I was disappointed thoroughly. When I first listened to the CD, I could only go up to the first nine tracks, because those were the most listenable.
The album goes completely downhill after "Splurge." The last four songs except "#1" seem like they were made just for added content and not for classics.
Now, with the exceptions of "Nellyville," "On The Grind," "Dilemma," "Splurge" and "Air Force Ones" I can't listen to any of the songs and I skip over tracks like crazy.
I liked "Hot in Herre" as much as the next person when it first came out. Now that song is so over-played, I can't even watch the video now.
And how do you know when a rapper decides not to stay hip-hop?
The answer: When he does a track with the lead singer for a pop band. Now, I know that Nelly was featured in the Girlfriend Remix, which I still, to this day despise that song. So, Timberlake returns the favor...Yada Yada Yada. This song is the worst track on the album and had no business on a "hip-hop" album period.
Had Nelly gotten rid of tracks such as: "Dem Boyz", "Work It," "CG2," "Say Now" and the unfunny skits, this sophomore attempt then would at least have had definite potential to top the debut album.
So, unless you're a big Nelly fan, disregard this album and pick up "Free City" and "Country Grammar."

1.0 out of 5 stars Nellyville is nowhere near the Bronx.... July 7, 2002
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
I'm the last person to hate on someone else, I'm happy that Nelly made it and is makin $$, but he is not a real hip hop artist, he is not real hip hop. I didn't have a problem with him even though he was making songs with N'SYNC, stealing nursery rhymes and putting them in his hooks, and has no kind of lyrical flow but hey, if horrible music is making you rich, do your thing. But due to his recent beef with KRS-ONE and claiming himself the #1 rapper in the game, I am now officially hating on this man. How can you diss a legend like KRS-ONE? That's against the rules, MCs like him paved the way so you can make money and buy that corny jewelery you wear. If we build a hip hop Mt. Rushmore tommorow, KRS will be the face on the right next to Rakim. If you are a young fan of rap music and are unfamiliar with this man, download "step into a world" and just listen to hip hop at it's greatest, he is sick with it. And not only that, but now Nelly acts like he can touch KRS. What the hell is he smokin?? If you really want it, stop saying things in magazine articles and step up and battle the man. I hope they put it on pay per view, cause I would easily pay [mounds of money] to see a true MC just embarass a kid who has no idea what he just started. Nelly gets no play in any true Hip Hop heads stereo, the only time I will listen to him is at the club (and that's sometimes). How garbage is his new single "Hot in Here?" Anyway, I had to let out my frustrations because rappers like Nelly are the reason why hip hop is in a major slump. So please, Nelly, call KRS and beg for forgiveness (and take that damn band-aid off your face....)

I really loved this album! One of the best from Nelly! Aww, and it was pre-factory rap, i.e. Nicki Minaj, which makes it even better in my book! :)
