Philly MC Curly Castro appeared with his Wrecking Crew collaborators earlier this year on the stellar LP Raheem’s Lament, and one of his standout moments in the project just got a music video treatment.

The hard-hitting dub / trap vibes of “Dreadlocs Falling” finds Castro rapping about his hairstyle of choice — though calling it just a “hairstyle” is reductive. Dreads are philosophy, spirituality, a lifestyle that gets explored in greater depth in a new music video.

Styled like a bootleg VHS compilation with flickering visuals and static transitions, the “Dreadlocs Falling” video intercuts footage of Castro with clips of famous people and their locs throughout history — Zach De La Rocha to Jae Crowder to Bob Marley to Jesus. Alongside Castro’s rhymes, they’re shown as a symbol of strength and source of Black power.
