The White Mandingos “Black Girl Toof”

The White Mandingos “Black Girl Toof”

The-White-Mandigos-By-Mel-D-Cole-web

I’m so serious about this release and I’ll tell you why. As it turns out, my new favorite “white” black militant band’s most recent vinyl pressing “Mandingo Rally” has a really, really soft B-side. Not soft in a “Yo son, you mad soft” way. I mean soft in an easy-listening kind of way. Not that 80’s ballads or smooth Jazz radio station sh*t either.

If you know anything about Hip-Hop, Rock or vinyl in general you’ll know that the term B-sides usually, though not all the time, translates into “overlooked gem” (as in rare grooves and B-Sides). So check it. “Black Girl Toof” is the name of this R&B shea-butter-cream of a track and man does it lather on well. And without getting too homoerotic for the bros or too *hubba hubba* for the “Mandinguettes” reading this, I’d like to just go on the record and say that the sweeter side of The White Mandingos is greatly appreciated. It’s also very historically¬†accurate, articulate and introspective. Love’s confusing. Having your dad smoke crack is confusing. Being black in America is confusing. And sometimes combinations of all three really f-ing suck. Fortunately for us, The White Mandingos don’t. Enjoy the tune comrades!

Dear Black Baby Jesus please bless the White Mandingos.

Sincerely,

Rat Lord
