#NowPlayingAtGhettoMangaHQ THERE GOES THE NEIGHBORHOOD by TankAndTheBangas

I fell in love with Tank (frontwoman of Tank and the Bangas) along with the rest of the world when the latest amazing band from NOLA appeared on NPR's Tiny Desk Concert Series in 2017.  Equally comfy rhyming or crooning, the tiny artist whose vocals and lyrics are as heavy as her name has only blossomed into a more and more impressive artist since then.  

Tank and the Bangas' new video There Goes The Neighborhood tackles one of the black community's most persistent specters with the cheerful melancholy I've come to expect from them.

There Goes The Neighborhood (Official Video)

"We couldn't do nothing but wave and whisper
Watch and whisper 'White folk coming.
Better watch Big Mama house, before they figure us out...'"

That shit hit different for me.  As I type this, I'm sitting in my Gramma's house... She passed on years ago, and we always make sure someone from the family lives here, as we work together to keep the house up.  

After all, this is House-Flipping country.  

But we are fa sho NOT giving up Gramma/Big Mama's house to the gentrifiers.

So anyways, I hope you enjoy the video.  Even though I'm SURE Tank 'nem made it just to encourage me.

He even writes and draws his own comics, like Dare: The Adventures of Darius Davidson, Spontaneous, and Manchild when he gets around to it.

THE MELANITES follows a pantheon of super powered beings that take an interest in the development of Earthly society, and the response of human gangsters, civilians, and authorities to the presence of these mysterious demigods. Whatever their origins, the Melanites have landed for better or worse.
Written by Tyger Ra-Seth Moore and Corance Davis.
