It’s not too late to snag tickets to multi-sensory experiences at the Charleston Wine + Food Festival (CHSWFF)! Music and food have always been the ultimate pairing, and the festival is featuring a whole bunch of ways to celebrate that great collaboration.
On Friday, March 3, Southern hip hop icons, Nappy Roots, will prove the case. Headlining Charleston Wine and Food’s Hip Hops: The ReMix, the band will throw down for guests gathered to sip and savor the night away.
Best known for their hit singles, “Po’ Folks,” “Awnaw” and “Good Day,” the two-time Grammy Award-nominated, and multi-platinum selling group consists of industry trailblazers Fish Scales, Skinny DeVille, B. Stille, and Ron Clutch.
The group also owns and operates one of the nation’s few black-owned breweries, Atlantucky Brewing in Atlanta. In 2021, Nappy Roots created a docu-style, reality-based television series called “40 Acres & A Brew” that won the award for “Best Episodic Short” at the Rome International Film Festival. Nappy Roots is currently finishing their ninth full-length studio album, which features the critically acclaimed singles “Random Thoughts” and “Box of Chocolates.”
Tickets for the CHSWFF are on sale with limited capacity for the event, which is also shining a spotlight on renown and celebrated brewers and chefs on a national level.
Hip-hop turns 50 this year, and CHSWF is raising a glass to the genre at That Yak. This event will be an ode to cognac and a celebration of its connection to rappers like Megan Thee Stallion and Tupac (RIP). This session, North Charleston’s Blue Note Bistro will feature a deep dive into cognac by inviting an expert in the drink and a Hip Hop guru to collaborate and make you taste—and listen—with new appreciation.
