His The Last Days of Oakland scooped the Grammy at this year’s awards ceremony, with its guttural blend of rock and blues addressing social ills in modern America.

Fantastic Negrito left home at 12, later working as a marijuana farmer before signing a record contract for almost one million euros.

He was run over by a car in LA., suffering brain damage and injuring his playing hand before scoring success with last year’s album.
