Biography

Bay Area-based singer/songwriter Xavier Dphrepaulezz rebooted his career in the 2010s by adopting the name Fantastic Negrito and pioneering a blues, hip-hop, rock, folk, and funk hybrid on his 2016 album, The Last Days of Oakland. This album arrived 11 years after X Factor, an album he released on Interscope under the name Xavier in 1995, but The Last Days of Oakland functioned as a de facto debut, showcasing an inventive, passionate musician who pulled together all the different, sometimes contradictory sounds within 21st century America and who played with the past as a way to comment upon the present. ~ Stephen Thomas Erlewine~ Rovi
