Hip Online spoke with the Nappy Roots ahead of their release of Watermelon, Chicken, and Gritz’ on Tuesday. The group explained the delay of getting the album out since they’ve been signed since 1998 saying, “The world wasn’t ready. The late ’90’s was more bling and a lot of diamonds. I ain’t anti-bling, but that isn’t what we are on. We are more about representing ourselves. The world wasn’t ready for us, but we weren’t ready for the world either. We had to grow up; we had to mature musically and as men. We went through a lot of changes, but its time.”
