Now that the Dirty South has shifted attention away from the East Coast-West Coast axis, hip-hop prospects are rising from points all across the map. COUNTRY GRAMMAR, the debut disc by Nelly, introduces the hip-hop world to the sound and slang of St. Louis, a Midwestern city affectionately called "the Lou" or "the Arch." Pumped full of hyperactive beats like those of Hot Boys production wizard Mannie Fresh, COUNTRY GRAMMAR will appeal to fans of Juvenile's Cash Money crew. Nelly, however, spices up the 808, electro-funk with tasty samples, acoustic guitars, and live percussion. While most of the tracks are built around R&B hooks, Nelly proves on "Ride Wit Me" that he's got enough pop sensibility to gain radio airplay. And with a flow that alternately tackles rugged street stories ("Greed, Hate, & Envy"), bouncy, club-worthy cuts ("St. Louie"), and thug-redemption slow-jams ("Lovin' Me"), Nelly is an all-around crowd pleaser. So ya heard. Don't sleep on St. Louie. Michael Endelman
