So feel me when I bring it
Sing it loud
I'm from the Lou and I'm proud

from Nelly – Country Grammar (Hot Shit) Lyrics on Rap Genius


Nelly, although born in Texas, moved to St. Louis as a teenager

Some lyric sites list this lyric as “I’m from the Loop and I’m proud,” which could be correct — the Delmar Loop, a district of St. Louis, is often referred to as “The Loop”

A reference to James Brown’s anthem: “Say It Loud: I’m Black And I’m Proud”
