Wiki

"Country Grammar" is the debut single by the rapper Nelly, produced by Jason "Jay e" Epperson. It was released in 2000, taken from Nelly's 2000 album Country Grammar. It peaked at #7 in both the US and UK and hit #56 in Sweden. "Country Grammar" introduced a unique and also unheard of Midwestern twang influenced by Nelly's Missouri roots. The song's melody and chorus were taken from a song popularly sung by children with clapping games called "Roller Coaster". On the clean version, the word "shit" is backmasked, and most of the explicit words would be replaced by appropriate words.

Fellow St. Louis rapper Jibbs would later use the same tactic employed by Nelly in creating his first hit single. He would go on to imitate the popular children's song "Do Your Ears Hang Low?," with his song, "Chain Hang Low".

The song also references Beenie Man's 1998 dancehall single "Who Am I (Sim Simma)" with the line, "Keys to my beemer, man, holla at Beenie Man".

The song was also parodied in the TV show MADtv.
