Nappy Roots

It wouldn’t be accurate to classify Nappy Roots as country rap, but the hip-hop group’s ties to rural Kentucky are reflected in the music, much the same way Compton defined NWA and Atlanta inspired OutKast. In fact, Nappy Roots has always embraced the same kind of genre experimentation that Big Boi and Andre 3000 loved so much, with elements of ’90s R&B and classic blues creeping into the mix. They’ve been independent artists for years now and they’ve also expanded their brand into microbrews, having released a handful of band-themed beers.
