"Batter Up" is a song by American hip hop group St. Lunatics. It is performed by group members Nelly, Ali and Murphy Lee and was produced by Steve "Blast" Wills. The song first appeared on Nelly's album Country Grammar (2000) and was later included on the group's album Free City (2001) as a bonus track. A remixed version of "Batter Up" appears on Nelly's album Da Derrty Versions: The Reinvention (2003).

The song's hook interpolates "Movin' On Up", the theme song of the television sitcom The Jeffersons.[1] The show's star, Sherman Hemsley, appears in the music video for "Batter Up",[1] initially as a sports announcer and later dancing with members of St. Lunatics.
