Nappy Roots
Nappy Roots
One of the best-selling and most successful hip hop groups of all time,

Nappy Roots entered the music scene in 1998 and they have remained real, humble, talented guys with inherent, undeniable southern swagger. After the international success of their album Watermelon, Chicken, & Grits, selling over 3 million albums, the members of Nappy Roots were flying high while still acutely aware of how far it could be to the bottom should they fall. It is that practical and genuine presence of mind that helped them sustain touring as a group these last ten years. Building a vastly loyal fan-base nationwide, fans and friends can be used interchangeably when referring to their army of followers.

In an economically recessed climate, Nappy Roots has joined the rest of the nation in trying to understand and work through financial and emotional struggles. No stranger to challenges, this four-man collective from Kentucky tackled their obstacles and, in the process, their self-honest work emerged in form of 5 studio albums and 10 mix-tapes. As usual, Nappy Roots examine our alienable rights, reason, and truth through lyrical originality and voyage.
SHAME
Shame, a hip-hop artist talented in the art of lyricism and storytelling, aims to bring hip-hop back to its roots, while still keeping up with the evolution the genre has experienced. Inspired by hip-hop legends such as Q-Tip, Biggie Smalls, A Tribe Called Quest, Tupac, Big L, Nas, Mos Def, Eminem, Shame got his start in music by competing in rap battles and distributing his music through local college radio stations. Since then he has amassed new fans along the way with his high-energy stage presence and dynamic delivery.

He was born in Capitol Heights, Maryland, and now resides in Raleigh since 2013, where he continues to create music, and release projects such as, “The Sequence,” in February 2016 featuring the lead single “Still Ballin,” and his recent album “Genesis 98’“ in October 2018. Shame has performed at top venues throughout the Triangle area and beyond, including, Pour House, Imurj, Kings, Deep South, The Pinhook, The Lincoln Theater, Duke Energy Center, The Ritz and shared the stage opening for acts such as Bone Thugs & Harmony, Twista, Dave East, Yo Gotti, GhostFace Killah, Raekwon, Slum Village, Nappy Roots and more.
