LOS ANGELES (Atlantic Records) - They may be platinum-selling recording artists, but the members of Nappy Roots
still hold true to their Kentucky origins.
The group attended a Democratic rally last weekend in Louisville with special guest, the Honorable Jesse
Jackson. A shared love of music originally brought Nappy Roots
together during their days at Western Kentucky University.
The group has a history of involvement in political activism, including the completion of a public service annoucement for the PAX Organization's "Speak Up" campaign against weapon-related school violence.
