Five minutes to the stage: The White Mandingos




The White Mandingos recently rocked Afropunk Festival in Brooklyn, New York. The band includes Murs, formerly of Living Legends, Sacha Jenkins, veteran music journalist and former editor of Ego-Trip Magazine, and Bad Brains bassist and founder, Darryl Jenifer. The short interview was shot just before they got on stage. Their debut album The Ghetto Is Tryna Kill Me has been getting praise across the board. It’s like listening to something that should’ve been made already, but for some reason it hasn’t. It’s a personal look at black identity, while addressing the national consciousness. Sacha has called it “heavy negro spiritual.”
