Nelly’s second studio album was even more successful than his first, debuting at number one on the US Billboard Charts, selling 714k first week on it’s way to being certified 6 times platinum in the US.
The record featured a total of six singles: “#1”, smash hit “Hot In Herre”, even bigger smash hit “Dilemma,” posse cut “Air Force Ones,” “Work It,” and “Pimp Juice.” The album was nominated for 3 Grammy’s in 2003: Album of the Year, Best Male Rap Solo Performance and Best Rap/Sung Collaboration. “Hot In Herre” and “Dilemma” both won their categories.
The album is a loose concept based on a fictitious city named “Nellyville.” The title track pulls the entire thing together, before Nelly begins to extrapolate on his own position inside the community, chasing girls, spending money, going to the club, and selling pimp juice.
In 2014 Nelly used the name to create his own reality TV show based around his family.
