Right now, Nelly is very recognisable IMHO,

His monotone playground / skip rope / chant vocals
His repetitious "bubble funk" grooves - (vaugely like Prince's 'Sign O the Times")

See what these cats use for:

Snares
Kicks
Hi hats
Bass sounds

As e-cue says they CHANGE it all the time! The sound palete from which they chose is VAST. The genre doesn't have the fixed standards for basic sounds that classical, rock & country engineering must adhere to.

This "engineering beauty" is of course at extreme odds with the lyrics, which are often disturbing.

So Dave, get any recent Nelly album.
