Nelly 2000-2003.

The first time I learned about Nelly was in fourth grade when everyone in the class shared their favorite artist or band. Still caught in the powerful gravitational pull of Hybrid Theory, I chose Linkin Park. Some random kid chose Nelly. I went on to become best friends with that kid. Coincidence? Probably not.

From 2000 to 2003, Nelly's dominance was rivaled only by Jay Z and Eminem. Click through the image gallery to revisit 10 of his most memorable tracks from that era.
