Missouri
twang".[50] AllMusic suggests Nelly's style is based largely on where he comes from - "Nelly's locale certainly informs his rapping style, which is as much country as urban, and his dialect as well, which is as much Southern drawl as Midwestern twang".[7] Nelly
Nelly
explains his method of writing in the book How to Rap, describing how he freestyles most of the lyrics before going back over them to "make it a little tighter",[51] he generally writes in the studio rather than at home,[52] he normally comes up with a chorus for a song before writing the verses,[53] and he likes to write to the music he will be rapping over.[54] AllMusic also notes his "tongue-twisting" hooks, which are also often sung rather than rapped.[55] Other ventures
