Nappy Riddem

Nappy Riddem brings the familiar rhythms of reggae, hip hop and the Caribbean to new levels of soul, traversing the soundscape with songs of freedom, tribulation, love and happiness. Founded in 2009 by well-known vocalist Mustafa Akbar and DJ Rex Riddem, they released their first album One World Sovereignty on the Fort Knox Recordings label in 2011. The debut album received international radio acclaim, was featured by High Times and Okay Player and has been remixed by some of the hottest producers. Nappy Riddem is a global project and influences can be heard from their backgrounds in Trinidad, Brazil, South Africa, and Europe.  All of the members met in Washington, DC and their love for Chocolate City funk is what ties it all together.
