“Hot In Herre”
This No. 1 hit, produced by The Neptunes, uses a sample of Chuck Brown's 1979 funk classic "Bustin' Loose." It became a summer anthem, and won a Grammy for Best Male Rap Solo Performance. Nelly explained the lyrics focusing on overindulgence and a too-hot-to-handle dancefloor to Rolling Stone, saying, "People have enough to think about right now. I'm just trying to free their minds and have a little fun with it. I know you got your own problems; I got my own problems. Let's think of something else for a change."
