Today, Nelly and Prodigy celebrate their 37th birthdays. Who knew?

The "Country Grammar" superstar came in the game in 2000 when he debuted his first single and took over the charts. Now, more than a decade later — with five albums under his belt — the St. Louis rapper will most likely celebrate his born day like it's 1999.

And let's not forget about the Queens MC Prodigy, who dropped his first solo album in 2000 as well (H.N.I.C.). Now a free man after serving a jail stint recently, there's no telling what party the Mobb Deep member will throw to commemorate another day.

But either way, both have put in work in the game and XXL wishes both MCs a happy g-day!—Amber McKynzie
