Nellyville is a reality series that premiered on BET in November 2014. The show revolves around the life of Grammy award-winning rapper, Nelly, and his family. The series is named after the rapper’s 2002 hit song ‘Hot in Herre’ that features the line “I’m going down, down, baby, your street in a Range Rover’ – the same Range Rover seen in the opening scene of the show.

The show takes viewers inside Nelly’s home and his world beyond music. The series captures the everyday struggles and triumphs of Nelly's family life, including his relationship with his children, particularly his two eldest, Nana and Shawn Ash, whom he had with his ex-girlfriend. Shawn is a football prodigy and Nana is a budding entrepreneur. Viewers get to see their challenges as they grow up in the spotlight while trying to find their niche in life.

In addition to focusing on his family, the show also highlights Nelly's music career, his love life, and his desire to give back to the community. Nelly is seen juggling his busy work schedule while still finding time to spend with his family. We get an exclusive behind-the-scenes look at Nelly's creative process in the studio, his collaborations with other artists, and his performances on stage.

Throughout the series, Nelly shows his philanthropic side by giving back to the community. Viewers witness him supporting various causes such as education, healthcare, and empowerment of underprivileged youth. In one episode, he even gives one of his fans, a young girl battling cancer, the chance to meet him backstage at a concert.

The show also features a supporting cast of Nelly's family and friends, including his brother, sister, cousins, and longtime friend and personal trainer Quinones "Q" Miller. In each episode, his family and friends offer their perspectives on the music icon's personal and professional life. The cast dynamic is entertaining, with family members engaging in lighthearted banter and playfully teasing one another.

Nellyville is also notable for its representation of black families on mainstream television. With many reality shows of the genre often stereotyping black families, Nellyville portrays a positive image of a loving, supportive, and successful African American family.

While the show may be about Nelly, it’s clear that the real stars of the show are his children. Throughout the series, we see them grow and mature in front of our eyes, going through the same struggles and challenges that many viewers can relate to. One of the standout moments of the series is Nana's graduation party, where Nelly gives a touching speech that highlights the importance of hard work, persistence, and education.

Overall, Nellyville is an entertaining and heartwarming reality series that offers an intimate look into the life of one of hip-hop's biggest names. The show is a testament to the rapper’s commitment to his family, his music, and his community. It’s a must-watch for fans of Nelly, as well as anyone looking for a positive representation of black families on television.

Nellyville is a series that is currently running and has 2 seasons (29 episodes). The series first aired on November 25, 2014.
