The White Mandingos, whose lineup features Murs, Darryl Jenifer from Bad Brains and Sacha Jenkins SHR, talk industry in their new track “Warn A Brotha,” which you can stream below. The song comes from their debut album The Ghetto Is Tryna Kill Me, out June 11 on Fat Beats.
“The Ghetto is Tryna Kill Me is our Tommy,” says guitar-playing White Mandingo Sacha Jenkins SHR. Jenkins SHR, who is a huge Who fan, cites the group's 1969 rock opera as a definite influence on Ghetto's voice. “And “Warn A Brother” is a 2013 take on “Pinball Wizard.” Murs is the black Roger Daltry meets the black Eazy E…Darryl is the black John Entwhistle. Listen to this tune over a weekend and, depending on your religious beliefs, you could wind up having a Black Sabbath.”
