The Nappy Roots crew have released another tune in the #somethingsgottagive series. The crew is working on an album, The 40 Akerz Project , with SMKA that is set to drop in March of 2015. In the meantime, have a listen:
Buffalo Stille said in a statement “[Nappy Roots Entertainment Group Vice President] Jonathan Hay approached me with this concept years ago to redo this song and I was all for it, as I’ve always known it could’ve been better. This is one of my favourite hooks I’ve ever written and I like it even more since it’s been revisited. It was great to work with Kanye and I’d love to work with him again. This is a great ten-year anniversary record.” This version was co-produced by Hay and Michael A. Smith.
The tune can be downloaded here.
Watch the video:
Kenneth Ryan Anthony, whose stage name is R. Prophet, was arrested by Kentucky State troopers outside of Elizabethtown on Monday night for resisting arrest at a traffic safety checkpoint. The arrest required multiple instances of tasing of Anthony by troopers. The Louisville native first achieved fame as a member of Nappy Roots and has left the group five years ago to begin a solo career. WHAS TV has the story.
