The St. Lunatics
|Origin||St. Louis, Missouri, United States|
The St. Lunatics are a rap crew from St. Louis that was runned by rapper Nelly and comprised of his hometown buddies Ali, Murphy Lee, Kyjuan, City Spud, and Slo'Down, who left. They were formed in 1993 and came out with their local hit "Gimme What U Got" in 1996. Then, they bursted on the music scene with Nelly with the release of his solo album Country Grammar but City Spud was arrested and sentenced to 10 years in prison for robbery. So far away from the members of St. Lunatics, Nelly introduced the world to his crew when the crew released their debut album Free City in 2001 with hits such as "Summer In The City" and "Midwest Swing". Then Ali released his solo album Heavy Starch in 2002 and Murphy Lee released his solo album Murphy's Law in 2003.
