Bowling Green, Ky.’s Nappy Roots haven’t truly been on, so to speak, since their sophomore release, 2003’s Wooden Leather. But over the past year or so, the blue-collar, southern-fried rap outfit has shown flashes of pure country rap goodness. And from the sound of their latest track — the celebratory and inspirational “Congratulations” — it appears that Nappy Roots’ recent stream of solid material will only continue this September when the quintet releases Nappy Dot Org. The album will feature production entirely from Organized Noize, the same Atlanta-based crew behind all of Outkast’s Southernplayalisticadillacmuzik, TLC’s “Waterfalls,” and much more.
You can stream “Congratulations” below. Nappy Dot Org drops Sept. 13.
