Nelly put the Midwest on the map for hip hop in 2001, with the release of his debut album Country Grammar. He’s since released 5 albums, won numerous Grammys, owns two clothing lines and has a blossoming acting career. Though he’s influenced by LL Cool J, Rakim, Run DMC and more, Nelly considers his unique rap style a more jazz-influenced style of hip hop.
