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.

On June 27, 2000 the hip hop world welcomed in their newest superstar. With the release of his debut album Country Grammer, Nelly made a permanent mark in the hip hop community. Nobody could have expected the album to spawn two #1 singles ("Country Grammer" & "Ride With Me") and go on to sell over 8 million units. That lead to a highly successful tour with Cash Money Millionares, Lil' Kim & Ja Rule as well as an even more successful solo tour. He quickly released the St. Lunatics album (an album that also contained Nelly and friends from St. Louis) which sold over 2 million units and help strong on the charts. He guested on countless tracks, dominated MTV & BET with appearences and kept his name strong while preparing to release his brand new album Nellyville.
With this release, there is absolutely no growth. He keeps the same formula for his sophomore album that he used to gain incredible amounts of success with his debut. The annoying first single "Hot in Herre" dominated urban & pop radio this summer, much like his "Country Grammer" did in the summer of 2000. However with the St. Lunatics by his side as well as the entire entertainment community, he is now positioned to take rap over completely. With high profile collaborations, the best producers money can buy & his untouchable southern charm (and slang) Nelly clones his debut album for more enjoyment.
The album includes some definet ..., like the St. Lunatics laced "Dem Boyz" & the Beanie Sigel/Freeway guested "Rock the Mic" [REMIX], while keeping the album commercial for radio airplay on tracks like "Pimp Juice" & this albums "Ride With Me", "The Gank". Another song that has been gaining incredible airplay is "Dilemma" the Pattie LaBelle sampled RnB collaboration with Kelly Rowland of Destiny's Child.

This LP is representative of the (mainstream!) hip hop nation today: all style and little substance. Obviously I'm not saying anything different than other fans of 'true' hip hop when I criticize Nelly...yes, he has been snarling in interviews lately about how grounded he is, how hard his upbringing is , "so don't say I'm not real"...but that has little to do with his actual music.
'Hot in Herre' musically is the tightest thing on Nellyville, I'll admit that. If only it were an instrumental. Same goes for 'Roc the Mic', which I always liked, and '#1'. But again, the lyrics take away from the pleasure.
See, altho I don't like hip-pop, I don't begrudge a man for doing what he feels (even if it's mostly motivated by flava-of-the-month mentalities). BUT-but, but but-since every top-selling rap album of the last 6 years or so has catered to platinum & auto collecting, hedonistic sensibilities, and as a result, the entire world now believes that this is ALL that hip hop represents...it makes me angry. It infuriates me, to be more accurate. I'm going on 30, though (ancient in rap years), so perhaps I'm just old and crotchety. But I still love hip hop. I want better for her.
Whether you realize it, this music paints a picture of its fans and of black people to everyone. (And tongue-wagging booty-chasing albums like this one are used by bigots to say "see?? see?? this is how they are!") Unfair but true. Almost makes me want to believe the conspiracy theories about how hip hop is purposely being watered down to a harmless potency. But then again, this happens to every 'created by the people' music, doesn't it?
Nellyville, as I mentioned, is on point musically. Can't deny that.
