Nappy Roots, Nappy Dot Org

The Nappy Roots haven’t retained the mainstream relevancy they first realized with 2002’s Watermelon, Chicken & Gritz and the “Awnaw” and “Po’ Folks” singles it spawned in the near decade since. In that time, though, the five-man Kentucky-based group has continued to churn out solid soul-drenched countrified offerings and again do so with their latest opus, Nappy Dot Org.

Coming with their signature country boy sound, the quintet reaches new depths with this 11-track offering. With the collaborative efforts of Atlanta’s Organized Noize orchestrating production on the entire album, it has a track for every mood. “The Legend Lives On” is a proper reintroduction where, assisted by Big Rube and backed by bluesy strings, the collective mark their return. The single “Hey Love” is a deep and smooth joint, which is followed up with the party-ready “Pete Rose,” alongside Khujo Goodie.

Later, recalling Nappy’s roots from their debut album, “Give Me A Sign” gives voice to everyday people, far from the typical money-and-bitches lyrics to which today’s generation has grown accustomed . With Nappy Dot Org, the crew supplies plenty of impassioned and relatable raps that reaffirm that past talents still connect today. —Amber McKynzie
