Back in January, Philly rapper Curly Castro made some noise in our studio alongside Zilla Rocca, his sidekick in 5 O’Clock Shadowboxers, for their Key Studio Session. Since that initial burst of energy, Castro has kept the momentum going between performances in support of his impressive, insightful debut long-player Winston’s Appeal; imaginative remix releases and a smokin’ one-off single (“TeenAger“); not to forget his contributions to the simmering Wu-Tang Pulp project.

Even with all that productivity, we’ve already got a taste of the followup full-length Castro plans to release next year. Check out the video for “They Call Me Castro” below – it was filmed by Mighty Joe Castro in October and November at Occupy Philly and at various locales in West Philly. Give it a watch and get psyched for Fidel, which will be released in early 2012.
