Tonight: Nappy Roots at the Oriental
It has been a long journey for Nappy Roots -- the hip hop group formed in 1995 as sextet of friends, spent some time in the early 2000s on Atlantic Records during the radio boom of Southern rap and now run their own label as a five-piece.
Once the less-than-satisfying major label jaunt was over, the Kentucky-based dudes found freedom in their Nappy Roots Entertainment Group imprint, touring and putting out two albums in the last few years.The Nappy boys bring their rowdy and refined stage presence to the Oriental Theater tonight, with White Fudge and Broken Tongues. This show is eighteen and up, tickets are $12-15. Doors open at 8 p.m., concert starts at 9 p.m.
