On October 2nd, Krondon and Shafiq Husayn, will release their Neighborhood Wonderful album under the group moniker, White Boiz. The seeds for collaboration began in 2011 when the Strong Arm Steady MC and SA-RA producer linked up at Shafiq’s home. Deep talks on race and the state of blackness in white America placed them on the same page mentally, which allowed the musical connection to fall into place with early recordings and appearances on separate solo projects in 2013.
Neighborhood Wonderful is a 14-track conversation between the two which explores the lives, neighborhoods, and every day hustlers and ghetto fighters that make up these communities. The album also serves to challenge the ideas and meanings behind what is “White,” how it’s used in different contexts and how it’s been used to place power in the hands of a few, while separating everyone else. Guest appearances on the album also include Thundercat (Brainfeeder), Anderson Paak (NxWorries, Dr. Dre’s “Compton”), Chace Infinite, Blu, Iman Omari, and others.
