Fantastic Negrito – "Rolling Through California" Feat. Miko Marks (Official Video)



Listen to or buy “Rolling Through California” here:

Fantastic Negrito says: “It all came together on that fateful day September 9, 2020. Everyone in Northern California woke up to a blood red sun on an orange sky. The air quality was the worst we had ever experienced. It felt and looked apocalyptic. Everything came to mind; climate change, drought, water management. It was quite terrifying and it inspired me to write a song that would bring attention to how treacherous our yearly fire season is. I wake up in the middle of the night sometimes in fear of being trapped by fire. We must find the will to meet this environmental crisis.”

Fantastic Negrito has partnered with Defy:Disaster so that a portion of the song proceeds will go to support firefighters, first responders, and communities impacted by wildfires throughout North America. You can also donate here:

Lyrics:
Better Pack your bags better get out fast
Running from the California smoke and ash
Everything’s gone in the wink of an eye
Blood shot sun on an orange sky

Can you hear the sound ?
It’s burning to the ground
I can hear the sound
When I be rolling through California

Everything’s charred property and cars
They tried to get away but They didn’t get far
The air quality is looking bad
Everybody outside is wearing a mask

Can hear the sound ?
It’s burning to the ground
I can hear the sound
When I be rolling through California

5 years ago today it never was this way
We used to laugh and point at Arizona
While they played with their guns
We laid out in the sun
Ohhh how heavenly our paradise was

5 years ago today it never was this way
We used to laugh and point at Arizona
While they played with their guns
We laid out in the sun
Ohhh how heavenly our paradise was

Can hear the sound ?
It’s burning to the ground
I can hear the sound
When I be rolling through California

  1. Hi whoever is in the picture on the honest man video like I'm autistic and I'm really never wrong about this kind of thing I know your dad I has to be preacher for my neighborhood he has a ton of kids dude and they all have that same f**** forehead and that same eyes in the same you all look like I know your dad

  2. Damn! I am totally digging this! Halfway through I went to iTunes and bought this single and two albums… and I just subscribed.

    I dig the Prog aspect, melding different forms of music together in a way that they retain their own personalities while uniting together into a vibrant sound. Not many can pull that off successfully and this song does just that. I hear Country, Jazz, Blues, Funk, Rock and Gospel all rolled up into a killer song. I am digging it!

    Can't wait to see 'em live.
