5.0 out of 5 stars A Hip-Hop Revolution!!!!, 30 Jun 2002
By A Customer
This review is from: Nellyville (Audio CD)
This album is possibly one of the greatest albums ever made, with versatile beats and even Nelly singing! Instead of dwelling deeply on his past, Nelly celebrates where he is at right now with songs like 'Splurge', but still recognises the tough times in songs like 'Say Now'. Nellyville takes hip-hop to a whole other level...
The skits on tracks 2, 8, and 19 are funny however many times you hear them (and I've heard them plenty of times)unlike many album skits...
'Nellyville' is an excellent opening track depicting Nelly's world where even the Projects' are rich...
'Hot in Herre' Nelly meets the Neptunes and makes another hit(need I say more?)...
'Dem Boyz' A harder sounding beat, but still one you can dance to...
'Oh Nelly' Again, one of the harder beats but still gets you bouncing...
'Pimp Juice' A rocky hip-hop one, Nelly put this one on cos his daddy liked it...Pimp juice is anything that attracts the opposite sex (Get the album to find out the details!)...Nelly SINGS on this one, and be scared, he's actually quite good...
'Air Force Ones' Very very catchy...
'On The Grind' Catchy, bouncing, bouncing, bouncing...
'Dilemma' This song features Kelly from Destiny's Child proclaiming her love for Nelly (?!)...The beginning doesn't do the song justice, with Kelly singing 'Nelly I love you, I need you, Nelly I love you, I dooooo' which makes the song seem like a complete farce. However, once it actually starts, the mix of Nelly rapping about falling for a woman who already has a man and a son, and Kelly's brilliant vocals, plus smooth beats, make it a great song...
'Splurge' is a song for Nelly's haters...'You see the magazines and me on your TV screen and you think you know me but you really don't'...it also celebrates Nelly's rise from the bottom all the way to the top ...'but I, I'm feeling good about myself, so I, I splurge a little'...the chorus gives the song that good old Nelly charm of using the catchiest melodies ever known to mankind to put across his point...
'Work It' features NSYNC's Justin Timberlake's vocals, and if you thought an ex-boyband member on a hip-hop album would never work, you had better think again! Nelly took a huge risk in challenging the stereotype that a pop artist and a hip-hop artist can never mix...This is as hot as 'Hot in Herre'...'Come on Come on, Clothes, Come off Come off'. With Nelly's usual lyrical wit and Timberlake's vocals reaching heights they've never been to before, this song is yet another Nelly masterpiece...
'Roc the Mic rmx' is bound to get you bouncing, with a Busta Rhymes style beat in the background and yet another catchy chorus. I've never heard the original, but this is great...
'The Gank' sees Nelly singing about a girl who has left him...but there's a twist at the end! Funny, but also great musically...
'5000' is a skit, but I have no idea what they are saying on it cos there is a lotta laughing! Something to do with 5000 dollars (?)
'#1' Nelly hits back at the critics with YET ANOTHER HIT!!!!...
'CG2' the sequel to 'Country Grammar' is yet another celebration of Nelly's rise from the bottom...as catchy as the original, but original enough not to mistake it for the first version...
'Say Now' is a VERY melancholic song, with a slightly puzzling choice of chorus...'Say Now, Can you Hoes Come out to play now'(?). Despite the chorus, this is a very evokative song to balance out all the partying on the rest of the album...
'Stick Out Ya Wrist' is Nelly's gift to all the UK fans only...ENJOY!
