"Nelly's (@derrtymo) 'Country Grammer' by far has influenced my career as a producer, artist, a creator, as a whole! Besides it being such an amazing body of work, I'm born and raised in #StLouis, Missouri. The album touched me in different ways. It let me know how possible and how close to reality it was to achieve success. It was the first CD that my mom ever got me that had the "parental advisory" sticker on. Before that, I had Romeo and Bow Wow CDs, and then I had 'Country Grammer.' I remember having a purple CD player and played it everyday, all day, everyday, for a long time. Even after 'Nellyville' came out. That's another one of my favorite albums." - @metroboomin

"@MissJillScott's 'Who Is Jill Scott? - Words And Sounds, Vol.1' is the first album my dad let me listen to that was not #jazz. I was in 4th grade and it was the first time I heard a woman combine and connect storytelling. It was powerful, how much storytelling, how much intention, how much confidence, how much vulnerability, Jill had. She was so big! Her energy was so big! Her mind was so big! She changed my life." - @sza
