Fantastic Negrito shares new single ‘Searching For Captain Save A Hoe (Feat. E-40)’

2x GRAMMY® Award-winner Fantastic Negrito has shared his new single ‘Searching for Captain Save a Hoe (Feat. E-40)’, a thought-provoking modern reinvention of legendary Bay Area rapper E-40’s 1993 classic, ‘Captain Save A Hoe’, accompanied by a video directed by Isaiah Frazier.
‘Searching for Captain Save a Hoe (Feat. E-40)’ is the latest single to be taken from Fantastic Negrito’s acclaimed new album, HAVE YOU LOST YOUR MIND YET?, available now via Cooking Vinyl and the artist’s own Blackball Universe. The track sees Negrito and E-40 – both Oakland icons and undeniable vocal powerhouses – creating history with an intense exploration of self that forces the listener to explore the concept of being emotionally vulnerable and the corresponding associations, labels, and mentalities humans often attach to that vulnerability.
“Working with E-40 is like working with a God of Hip Hop,” says Fantastic Negrito. “I am such a fan of his work. He is, and has always been so original. Light years ahead of what everyone was doing. I think people are just catching up with the genius of E-40.
“You have to be familiar with E-40’s work to understand the title ‘Searching for Captain Save a Hoe.’ For those who are not, I was reversing the role in the original ‘Captain Save a Hoe’ – Captain Save a Hoe was reformed and became a savior of men, and in the new song I am searching for him. I wrote the song from the perspective that I am the ‘hoe.’ Me and my fellow man. Because culturally we refer to women as ‘hoes’ when in fact we are the biggest hoes in the world.”
