Nappy Roots – Po’ Folks (w/ Anthony Hamilton)
Today’s throwback is Po’ Folks featuring soul-crooner Anthony Hamilton. The single “Po’ Folks” is from their album ‘Watermelon, Chicken & Gritz.’ Since Nappy Roots entered the music scene in 1998, they have remained real, humble, talented guys with inherent, undeniable southern swagger.
After the international success of 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.
All my life been po’
But it really don’t matter no mo’
And they wonder why we act this way
Nappy Boys gon’ be okay ~ Po’ Folks
Po’ Folks was released in 2002 and It peaked at number 21 on the charts. Anthony Hamilton’s performance, as well as the success of the song, is credited for launching Anthony Hamilton’s career in mainstream music.
