Fifty years later, as artist Topaz Jones debuts his 2nd album, DON'T GO TELLIN' YOUR MOMMA is a view into his and America's Black Identity through twenty-six individual scenes, each representing a letter and Topaz's corresponding update to their meanings.
With vignettes ranging from traditional music videos to talking-head documentaries and experimental tone poems, DON'T GO TELLIN' YOUR MOMMA is as funky as it gets. Topaz Jones has done justice to updating The Black ABCs, discussing important social issues of our time.
