"White Jesus Black Problems" Film Premiere + Q&A and Acoustic Performance
Three-time Grammy-winning singer, songwriter and musician Fantastic Negrito (neé Xavier Dphrepaulezz) is releasing his most ambitious project to date, White Jesus Black Problems, on June 3 via his own label, Storefront Records. To accompany the full-length studio album, Fantastic Negrito created an entire companion film set to the music. White Jesus Black Problems was written, recorded, and filmed in Oakland, where the artist grew up and currently resides. The multi-media project is based on the true story of Negrito’s seventh generation white Scottish grandmother (Grandma Gallimore), an indentured servant, living in a common law marriage with his seventh generation African American enslaved grandfather (Grandfather Courage); in open defiance of the racist, separatist, laws of 1750s colonial Virginia.
