Have you lost your mind yet?

Have you lost your mind yet? by Fantastic Negrito

Following up his grammy winning album, Please Don’t Be Dead, Xavier Amin Dphrepaulezz, known by stage name Fantastic Negrito, returns with a rhythm heavy exploration of funk, blues, and R&B. The album opens with Chocolate Samurai, a danceable track reminiscent of Prince. “I'm So Happy I Cry” and “Shigamabu Blues” are dense with blues and folk roots. Throughout the album, Xavier keeps his vintage sound elements modern with guest artists, including E-40 and Tank and the Bangas, and playful lyrics such as “Captain Save a Hoe” in his expressive voice.
