Nappy Roots: The Humdinger

Nappy Roots: The Humdinger

Jonathan Hay Publicityis working with the Grammy nominated, multi-platinum group, Nappy Roots, whose last August release of their long-awaited and critically acclaimed album earned them an impressive and well-deserved spot on the Billboard charts.

The Humdinger entered the Billboard Rap Charts at #7, the Billboard Independent Charts at #11, and the Billboard R&B/Hip-Hop Charts at #13!!

Hailing from Kentucky, the Grammy-nominated music group known as Nappy Roots exploded into the hip-hop scene with their massive hit single, “Awnaw” in 2002 from their platinum, Atlantic Records debut album titled, Watermelon, Chicken & Gritz. The group followed up with Wooden Leather, their critically acclaimed major label sophomore album, and have since worked with the who’s who of the music industry — such as Anthony Hamilton, Raphael Saadiq, Kanye West, David Banner, Lil Jon, and Jazze Pha, to name a few.

Like any true success story, there have been roadblocks and setbacks, but Nappy has more than cemented their feet and are here to stay. In their home state of Kentucky, Governor Paul Patton even sanctioned September 16th as Nappy Roots Day.

Nappy Roots are back again, exactly in the position they want to be in… as they gain artistic freedom in their careers, and land a new deal with Fontana/Universal Music Group.  Highly intelligent artists, passionate about political views and really wanting to make an impact in the world, the group is rooted in a return.
