"When you think of Nappy, you think raw and untamed," says Nappy Roots member Scales, explaining the hip hop sextet's unique moniker. "But you also think pure and natural." "That's what we are," chimes in partner in rhyme, Skinny DeVille. "Our name signifies our unwillingness to conform with fads. Once the fads die out, you always come back to the roots."
These Southern Hip Hop innovators from humble Kentucky roots have taken the scene by storm since their 1999 independent record Country Fried Cess. Their first major label release "Watemelon, Chicken, and Gritz" was the best selling hip hop album of 2002. Their 2003 release "Wooden Leather" featured production by Kanye West, David Banner, and Lil Jon and made waves in the charts. They have independently produced 3 albums since with 2010's "The Pursuit of Nappyness" having been their last album. Don't miss these Hip Hop legends as they make their way through Muncie on Thursday, May 30th!
