We could sit around all day and debate what Nelly’s best song is. Truth be told, there’s probably about 5-6 that I’d consider his greatest whenever they come on SiriusXM Fly. It just depends on mood and whether I’m doing 42 in a 35 (bad boy life) on my way back from Taco Bell or sitting in traffic praying I don’t shit my pants at 6:30 in the morning. I’m starting to think the two scenarios I just laid out are related…
County Grammar came out when I was 14 and I couldn’t wait to get my driver’s license so I could listen to the entire album in my dark green Pontiac Grand Prix (again, bad boy life). There were so many great hits on that album: E.I., Thicky Thick Girl, Ride wit Me, Batter Up, and of course, the album’s namesake Country Grammar. For today, Country Grammar gets the bump because of the Darnay Scott Bengals jersey seen throughout the video.
Before he was the featured back in Adam Sandler’s prison offense, Nelly was the soundtrack of our junior high and high school years. If you think I didn’t rock a pair of Air Force 1’s because of Nelly, you’re crazy. Now Mac get the hype on first site like, white on whites. Looking back, I should’ve gotten a different color. No 17-year-old should be trusted with a pair of white shoes and be expected to keep them looking crisp and presentable for more than a few weeks. I did my best.
I hope a little Nelly gets you in a great mood so you can attack this week like a St. Lunatic. Next time he comes on the radio, I hope you’re doing 7 MPH over the speed limit and not trying to defuse a ticking Taco Bell belly bomb in rush hour traffic.Follow @BennyMacBlog
