The latest discography by Fantastic Negrito è Grandfather Courageacoustic version of the acclaimed fourth studio album White Jesus Black Problems (Storefront Records, 2022) which earned him a nomination at the Grammy Awards 2023 in the category Best American Roots Performance for the individual Oh Betty.

Part love story, part history lesson, the extraordinary White Jesus Black Problems is an enthralling ode to the strength of family and the enduring resilience of humankind. Inspired by the interracial - and illegal - love story of his ancestors, a white servant girl and a black slave in 1750s Virginia, the album's tracks are daring and thought-provoking in addressing issues such as racism, capitalism and the true meaning of freedom, without ever losing sight of the desire and determination behind the narrative. Each track alone can sum up the meaning of the entire album, but analysing the album and its accompanying film as a whole leads to a much more transcendent experience, one that challenges knowledge about our identity, where we come from and where we are headed.

Virgin Radio is the official radio of the Italian stages of Fantastic Negrito.
