Mt. Tabor Theater

Nappy Roots are a Kentucky hiphop group that met at college in the mid-'90s. The turn of the century found them capitalizing on major label interest, due in part to the success of Southern acts such as Ludacris, Master P, and OutKast. Their major label debut, 2002's Watermelon, Chicken & Gritz, went platinum and allowed them to tour the world, although subsequent albums did not replicate their former glory. Their most recent full-length, Nappy Dot Org, is a welcome return to form, with all production handled by hit producers Organized Noize. Local emcee Serge Severe has recently returned from performing high-profile stage and radio shows in New York City, where his management resides. Severe is one of the most talented lyricists in Portland, and his intelligent wordplay, combined with his punishing delivery, sends the don't-sleep meter to code red. RYAN FEIGH
