Word on the curb is that Atlanta-based rap group Nappy Roots, the five-man hip hop collective responsible for the multi-platinum smash Watermelon, Chicken & Gritz, is currently at Dungeon East Studios working with the Organized Noize production team on a new CD.
In case you didn’t know, Organized Noize is the multi-platinum-selling award-winning trio consisting of Rico Wade, Ray Murray and Sleepy Brown that helped shape Southern Hip Hop with OutKast’s ground breaking Southernplayalisticadillacmuzik album.
Rico Wade explains:
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.
People are going to be impressed by this album.”
Nappy Roots’ new project marks the first time the trio has worked on an entire album in quite some time. Nappy Roots rapper Skinny DeVille speaks on the excitement of working with the legendary production team:
It’s an honor to be working with legends like Organized Noize. 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.
Well there you have it. Stay tuned for the fawnk!
