Description

Like their moniker suggests, the six-man hip-hop group known as Nappy Roots are raw and untamed, yet deeply connected to the musical past. The Kentucky-based collective (Big V, Ron Clutch, Fishscales, R. Prophet, B. Stille, and Skinny DeVille) first made a name for themselves with their two independently released collections – 1998’s COUNTRY FRIED CESS and and 1999’s NO COMB, NO BRUSH, NO FADE, NO PERM – as well as with live shows alongside such hip-hop stars as Digital Underground, Youngbloods, Jim Crowes, 112, Cashmoney Millionaire, 8 Ball, Ruffryders, MJG, Sole, and Twista. In addition, the group scored with their version of “Riches To Rags (Mmmkay),” which was featured on Atlantic’s 1999 release, MUSIC FROM AND INSPIRED BY THE MOTION PICTURE – SOUTH PARK: BIGGER, LONGER & UNCUT.

Now, with their long-awaited Atlantic Records debut, WATERMELON, CHICKEN, AND GRITZ, Nappy Roots are ready to spread their unique sound and vision from coast to coast. The group’s organically funky hip-hop stylings blend serious lyrical science and Dirty South grooves, notably on tracks like the ruminating “Life’s A Risk” and the block-rockin’ party anthem, “Ballin On A Budget”. Produced by such esteemed hip-hop studio whizes as Carlos Broady (The Notorious B.I.G., Lil’ Kim, Black Rob, India.Aire), Mike City (Sunshine Anderson, Bilal), the Trackboyz (Abyss), Jazze Pha (Ludacris, Too $hort), and Troy Johnson (Ray-J, Lil’ Mo), WATERMELON, CHICKEN, AND GRITZ is likely to propel Nappy Roots to the forefront of modern hip-hop and beyond.
