Fantastic Negrito Says It's Okay To Lose Your Mind Sometimes

Sep 14, 2020

Oakland’s Fantastic Negrito has gone from singing in BART stations to performing on stages around the world. The two-time Grammy winner’s latest album is "Have You Lost Your Mind Yet?"

"I don't want to fit into someone's repressed fantasy of how they see the world. So I love me."

This is his third full length album and first to top the Billboard Blues charts. In this interview, Fantastic Negrito talks about how his sound has evolved, his thoughts on mental health, and why he’s spending his time off stage farming.
