Product Description

NELLY NELLYVILLE

Amazon.com

When your debut album scans 8x platinum, why mess with the formula? That's what Nelly must have been thinking on Nellyville, as he virtually carbon-copies the Country Grammar template on his follow-up. This time around, though, unusually large chunks of his rhyme schemes are fixated on tales of his rise from rags-to-bitches. On tracks like "Work It" (which sadly features Justin Timberlake of toy band 'N Sync) and the title track, hip-hop's materialistic excess hits a fever pitch. Still, "bling, bling" never sounded so good over St. Lunatics in-house producer Jay E's beats.

Nelly takes his down-home St. Louis rap cadence to, er, identical heights on "Country Grammar II," one of the many similar-sounding sequels to original chart blazers "Country Grammar" and "E.I." The anthemic "Hot in Herre," whose hook implores hotties to get undressed over a poppy Neptunes beat, is the 2002 version of "Ride wit Me." Nelly even pulls a Q-Tip routine, mutating his already singsong delivery into full-on balladeering on "The Gank" and "Pimp Juice," with mixed results. KRS-One has called for a boycott of this album because he's decided Nelly has no respect for hip-hop elders, and, well, maybe he's right. But that won't stop this St. Lunatic from taking his fresh approach to commercial hip-hop to the nearest Chase Manhattan. --Dalton Higgins

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.

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.

I got to give it to Nelly, he had finally put St. Louis on the rap scene. I loved Country grammer, but this album is a step down. Some of the songs are just, ok. This album is not a total disapointment, but it lacking something. I would listen first before purchase.

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....)
