Nappy Roots Return With 'The Humdinger'

Kentucky Hip-Hop collective The Nappy Roots have announced the release of their third album, titled The Humdinger.

The Humdinger will be released independently on the group’s own Nappy Roots Entertainment Group, which is distributed by Fontana.

The Hip-Hop quintet, now consists of Skinny Deville, Ron Clutch, B. Stille, Big V and Fish Scales, since group member R. Prophet left the group to pursue a solo career.

Now, The Nappy Roots are aiming to match the success of their initial releases.

The group’s debut album Watermelon, Chicken & Gritz and the follow-up, Wooden Leather have sold over 2 million copies combined.

"When you think of Nappy, you think raw and untamed," said Nappy Roots group member Fish Scales of the album’s latest sound. "But you also think pure and natural.”

The first single from The Humdinger is “No Static,” while the group’s song “Good Day” from DJ Greg Street’s upcoming album on Interscope Records will be serviced to radio outlets shortly.

The Humdinger is due in stores August 5.
