About Nappy Roots

No stranger to challenges, this four-man collective from Kentucky tackled their obstacles and in the process, their self-honest work emerged in the form of 7 studio albums and 14 mix-tapes. Since Nappy Roots has entered the music scene in 1998, they have remained real, humble, talented guys with inherent, undeniable southern swagger. Between touring and recording, FishScales, Skinny Deville, B. Stille and Ron Clutch have focused on consistently putting out quality hip-hop and now brewing beer. In 2018 Nappy celebrated opening their own Nano-Brewery called Atlantucky Brewing Company and is already taking the craft beer world by storm, garnering rave reviews on previous collaborations.
