It’s nice when people are happy, and Nappy Roots certainly embrace that attitude more than most rappers. Their song “Good Day,” a Greg Street-produced single off last summer’s Innerstate Music, is positive rap to the max, complete with a child-chimed chorus.
In addition to rhymes about cleaning up, dressing up, and generally feeling good, Nappy Roots offer hip-hop’s most barbecue-friendly Patron recipe: “orange Kool-Aid go good with Patron.” Sounds even better than the Incredible Hulk (Hpnotiq and Hennessy; it’s actually pretty good).
Rapper Big V gets even more culinary, describing all the fixins for a proper fish fry:
Church folk had a fish fry
Mustard, hot sauce
Light bread, french fries
Love for the big guy
Fried fish and fries? Sounds like a good day.
