Taking his stage name from a college nickname based on his Mandinka West African ancestry, Mandingo debuted in West Coasts Booty Talk #9 in 1999. Mandingo is Mississippi born, but moved to LA as a child. In 2008, he returned to his native south and started a lifestyle brand called fred NICE, based in Atlanta. His big cock, which is said to be the largest in the industry today, ensured him a spot in porn history. Just how big is he, anyway? Sources vary, saying he's anywhere from 11 to 14 inches long.
