The White Mandingos "The Ghetto Is Tryna Kill Me" Cover Art, Tracklist & Album Stream
Exclusive Update#2: Murs, Darryl Jenifer and Sacha Jenkins' band The White Mandingos offers an exclusive stream of "The Ghetto Is Tryna Kill Me."
Los Angeles, California emcee Murs, Bad Brains' guitarist/vocalist Darryl Jenifer and ego trip co-founder, editor and artist Sacha Jenkins have formed The White Mandingos. The bi-coastal, multi-genre band have announced their debut, The Ghetto Tryna Kill Me, due June 11 on Fat Beats Records.
The trio's conceptual LP, produced by Jenifer and Jenkins, is told through Tyrone White, a band front-man from the Harlem's Polo Grounds Houses. "I think a lot of folks will be able to relate to Tyrone and his struggles," Sacha Jenkins said in a press statement. "He feels misunderstood- by his women, his friends, his people. And that misunderstanding sometimes affects who he is and who he truly wants to be. Should he not be playing this music because he's black? And who the hell is in the position to tell him what to do anyways?"
In 2012, Murs released a collaborative album with Fashawn, This Generation, as well as The Final Adventure, his said-to-be last joint album with 9th Wonder. Jenkins has helped relaunch ego trip in the digital space. Jenifer recently released his solo album, In Search Of Black Judas in 2010, in addition to work with Bad Brains.
