THE SONG: Searching For Captain Save a Hoe.
WHO: Fantastic Negrito
WHY IT’S HOT: Laid back West Coast vibe coupled with enough funk to stretch all the way back East. Xavier Amin Dphrepaulezz aka Fantastic Negrito conjures up a summer day as we crawl towards winter. His falsetto delivery that occasionally dips into baritone is Prince-like. Great stuff.
WANT MORE? Check out… His reinterpretation of Leadbelly’s “In the Pines” offers a different side from “Searching for Captiain…” It also holds up to that “other” cover by a certain Seattle band. The video is a powerful, must watch.
