Nelly Heading to Oklahoma City

By:  Addie Hayes, Editor/Lead Writer, Regional Music Journal

Grammy Award winning rapper and songwriter Nelly will be performing at the Diamond Ballroom in Oklahoma City on Wednesday, June 26th, presented by DCF Concerts.  Nelly began his career with hip hop group St Lunatics in 1993 before releasing his debut solo album Country Grammar in 2000.  The single “Ride wit Me” was a top ten hit and the album debuted at number three on the Billboard 200.  Nelly went on to release Nellyville in 2002, which produced his number one hit song “Hot in Herre” and “Dilemma” (ft. Kelly Rowland).  He went on to win the Grammy for Male Rap Solo Performance for “Hot in Herre” and Rap/Sung Performance for “Dilemma”.  Other songs from the album include “Work It” (ft. Justing Timberlake), “Air Force Ones” (ft. Murphy Lee and St Lunatics), “Pimp Juice” and “#1”.

In 2003, Nelly won his third Grammy for Rap Performance by a Duo for “Shake Ya Tailfeather”, a song recorded for the 2003 Bad Boys II soundtrack.  Nelly released two albums on the same day in 2004, Sweat and Suit, both of which debuted on the Billboard 200 chart at number 2 and number 1, respectively.   He went on to release Brass Knuckles in 2008, 5.0 in 2010 and M.O. in 2013.  In recent years, Nelly has kept busy with his acting career, but fans can expect more new music from the rapper.  He will be making a stop in Oklahoma City before kicking off his 2019 North American tour with TLC and Flo Rida on July 23, 2019.
