Once a hip-hop group’s members achieve big-name status, it’s only a matter of time before they decide to record solo albums. That time is rapidly approaching for Kentucky’s best known hip-hop group, the Nappy Roots; though R. Prophet left the group to focus on his solo venture, Skinny DeVille and Fish Scales have remained loyal to the movement while preparing their debut as a duo, 40 Akerz. The first single, We Out Here, embodies everything we’ve come to love about the Louisville quintet; over Sol Messiah‘s easygoing organ beat, Skinny & Scalez bring their trademark Southern-fried style as they discuss how far they’ve risen (both financially and spiritually) from their origins. If you enjoy We Out Here, stay tuned to DJBooth.net for plenty more coverage leading up to the summer release of 40 Akerz.
