Nappy Roots - Congratulations

Posted 5 years ago
Producer:
Organized Noize
Album:
Nappy Dot Org

While many hip-hoppers have to guard themselves at all times against the corrupting effects of fame and fortune, the Nappy Roots seem to have humility and gratitude flowing through their veins; whether it’s due to the Kentucky crew’s Southern upbringing, their religious faith or simply the accumulated wisdom of years, every record they put out attests to their uncanny ability to keep the game in perspective. No exception to this rule, the lead single off the Roots’ fifth LP finds Skinny Deville, B. Stille, Ron Clutch, Big V. and Fish Scales offering their Congratulations to fans for sticking with them through good times and bad. Over Organized Noize‘s wistful, string-laced instrumental, the group look back on their rise from poverty and struggle to national acclaim, even giving thanks for the tough periods that made their successes sweeter: “To everyone I know who ever came to a show, I kinda liked bein’ poor, ‘cause that’s how I met you.” Like what you’re hearing? Then keep it locked for the latest tunes leading up to the September release of Nappy Dot Org.
