N.A.P., which stands for "Niggas Ain't Playin", was a gangsta rap group from Indianapolis, IN, made up of Keylo-G, Ya-Yo, C-Rocc, Mel-Capone, Big Blu & Lil Muny.
They first appeared on a local tape by the House Of Villians in 1994 on Felony Records.
Then they released 3 albums between 1996 and 2002 ("Let's Get This Money" & "Straight Out The Nappy City", both in 1996 on Felony Records and "Nappy City Heavyweights" in 2002 on Platinum House Entertainment).
"Straight Out The Nappy City" (1996) was supposed to be taken from a forthcoming album, "Noth'n But A Come-Up" that was never released for some unknown reason. It's a shame because the EP is arguably the best release from Naptown...
N.A.P. also appeared on 2 classic midwest rap compilations, "Midwest Funk Volume 2" (1997) and the absolute must-have "Midwest Gatekeepers North/South G.I. Compilation" (1997).
Keylo-G, one of the founding members of the group, also dropped several solo releases since 2000 until he passed away in 2018...
