Nappy Roots ft. STS - Dippin & Dodgin
The Nappy Roots have been on something of a a Booth hot streak lately – judging by the reader response to mixtape cut P.O.N. (off SMKA‘s The 808 Experiment (Vol. 2)) and recently-released lead single Ride, the Kentucky quintet’s latest full-length will make 4/20 a good day for both the stoned and sober. In the meantime, the Southern heavyweights are back on our front page to tide fans over with a new, unreleased cut which finds Skinny Deville, Fish Scales, B. Stille, Big V and Ron Clutch Dippin’ & Dodgin’ alongside Philly/Atlanta dual representative STS (formerly known as Sugar Tongue Slim). Here, Tree Sound beatsmith Blake‘s funky keyboard-guitar sample sets the stage for verses that, though less focused than those the Nappy Roots delivered on their last couple features, come packed with enough agile braggadocio to please discerning lyrical heads. Will D&D be another entry in the group’s DJBooth hit parade? That’s for you to decide. In any case, readers who like what they’re hearing should remember to take a detour to the record store and grab their own copies of Pursuit of Nappyness while out on the all-important 4/20 snack run.
