Description

White Boiz formed initially out of mutual admiration. Krondon and Shafiq found themselves on the same page mentally, in deep talks for a year and a half on race and the state of blackness in white America.

Neighborhood Wonderful sets those talks to music-a 14-track conversation between the two, and also among master teacher Moors and every day hustlers and ghetto fighters. At times Afrocentric and Blaxploitation, and occasionally simultaneously so, the album is an exploration of lives and neighborhoods that are known to be dark, yet possessing brilliant dualities that make us who-and why-we are. The overall approach is an all-inclusive “one nation under a groove,” but the street knowledge in the music and the recorded conversational interludes go beyond just the funk.

The soundscapes in Grammy Award-winning producer Shafiq’s production are multifaceted, and even at their most melancholy, undeniably funky. As an MC, Strong Arm Steady crew member Krondon is relatable from the street corner to the temple.

Throughout Neighborhood Wonderful, White Boiz deliver a message of pride, reflection and self-awareness, like the phantom punch you didn’t see coming that catches you right on the chin-nonambiguous, brutally honest and unapologetically black.
