Nappy Roots is an alternative Southern rap group from the United States. They were the best-selling hip-hop group in 2002. The group consists of Fish Scales and Skinny DeVille, B. Stille, and Ron Clutch. Scales was recently shot, kidnapped, and robbed in front of an Atlanta brewery.

Fish Scales is lucky to be alive after being shot, robbed, and kidnapped outside the Atlanta brewery he co-owns. According to police, two suspects robbed a customer in the parking lot before breaking into Atlantucky Brewery and forcing Scales into his car at gunpoint.

According to TMZ, the robbers then drove Scales up the road to his home in a nearby suburb, where he escaped after being shot in the leg during a struggle. Scales is one-fourth of the Grammy-nominated rap group. He is now resting in the hospital.

Nappy Roots released a statement in support of the rapper. Scales’ vehicle was recovered by police. However, no arrests have been made as of yet.


“Last night our brother, Scales was a victim of an attempted robbery on the evening of August 17 in Atlanta after closing our brewery, Atlantucky. We are blessed to say that he is stable and in good spirits after suffering a leg injury. Luckily, none of our dedicated patrons of Atlantucky were at the scene or harmed during the robbery. We are so thankful our brother is safe and on the road to recovery. We would appreciate some privacy as we are trusting the Atlanta Police Dept in the ongoing investigation. Scales also mentioned he is looking forward to getting back to work both on music and brewery.”

According to the rap group, Scales is eager to get back to work and into the studio. We wish him a speedy recovery. To get the latest updates, keep an eye on Thirsty.
