I recently had the opportunity to work with Fantastic Negrito.
I had an all-access pass to film the Grammy-winning artist at The UC Theatre.
When I sat down with Fantastic Negrito before the show, he told me that we need to be bold. He said that Oakland fosters fearlessness - and that the onus was on us to be different.
Kim: What is the trap?
JR: A place in the 'hood that if you stay there too long you get trapped there. The people and circumstances bring you down.
How do you go from being with somebody in the morning, going to sleep for four hours, then waking up to find out they died? I don't think people understand this pain. Berkeley PD knows us all by name. It didn't take them long to figure out who did it.
