It’s been 20 years since Nelly dropped his debut album, Country Grammar, but if you watched his performance at the 2020 AMAs, you’d be forgiven for thinking it came out just yesterday.
The rapper and singer won plaudits for his live medley of three of his biggest songs, “Country Grammar”, “E.I.” and “Ride Wit Me”. Nelly even Brough out City Spud, who featured on “Ride wit Me” when it was released in 2001.
Though the performance was definitely a throwback, Nelly made fans feel like it was the early 2000s all over again.

Many even went so far as to comment on how Nelly doesn’t seem to have aged a day since he first appeared on the scene.
