Nappy Roots Working With Organized Noize

The Nappy Roots have enlisted Atlanta-based production trio Organized Noize to produce their upcoming album.

Organized Noize members Rico Wade, Ray Murray and Sleepy Brown are best known for their work with OutKast, Goodie Mob and the rest of the Dungeon Family.

“We’ve been credited with creating the ‘Sound of the South,’ and Nappy Roots is considered the ‘Conscience of the South,’ so it’s great that Nappy wanted to work with us,” Wade said.  “People are going to be impressed by this album.”

No release date or title for the new album has been announced. The Kentucky collective’s last album, 2010’s Pursuit of Nappiness, garnered a Southern Entertainment Award for Indie Album of the Year in 2011.

“It’s an honor to be working with legends like Organized Noize,” said Nappy Roots emcee Skinny DeVille. “Nappy Roots is a family and Organized Noize is like our older cousins that we haven’t seen in a while, so the [sessions are] like a family reunion. We stayed true to ourselves, but Organized Noize has pushed our limits and taken the music to the next level.” —Lauren Carter

    Wow!!!!!! “and Nappy Roots is considered the ‘Conscience of the South,” Here’s a quote from Lauren” The Kentucky collective’s last album, 2010’s Pursuit of Nappiness, garnered a Southern Entertainment Award for Indie Album of the Year in 2011.” Now am I wrong but ain’t Kentucky smack dead in the Middle of the Midwest? i’m a ignorant Cleveland nigga but I learned enough in school that Kentucky is not the South That’s why music doesn’t have an identity because too many people trying to be what they’re not and forgetting where they come from. Sounds good though but real recognize real and some of you cat’s just ain’t from around here………..SMH!!!!!

      You know, I never took the time to even pay attention to where Kentucky was on the map, but, you’re right. The fuck’s up with that???

      Well your right about 1 thing, you are an IGNORANT cleveland nigga. Kentucky has southern qualities amongst it’s own unique ones. To say nappy roots is trying to be something there not is fucking stupid. You obviously dont know the first thing about nappy roots, their music or kentucky so dont fucking speak on it. Real recognize real? Naw i dont think so bitch.

          I didn’t say Kentucky was the south, but what I’m talking about is riding through the cut in a 77 lincoln, smoking a big fat dutch master, listening to nappy roots, with a shotgun in the trunk and a pistol under my seat in case I see you, drinking bourbon, grilling out, ballin on budget & a bunch of other shit you dont know about.
