Today, to celebrate the beginning of a new partnership with burgeoning label Man Bites Dog Records, Philadelphia rapper Curly Castro is releasing his new song "My Beloved." This spring, Curly Castro will release his free album, FIDEL, through Man Bites Dog, and though "My Beloved" won't appear on that album, the song, which finds Castro collaborating with rapper Open Mike Eagle and producer Ricky Radio, serves not only as a warm-up for that official project, but also as a fine example of the music that fans can look to expect on the album.

"Tea Breakz and Zoot Beats" is my debut release and it is a 13 track instrumental journey. This album really just for me represents being your own person and doin' your own ting and investing love, time and effort into your craft and artistry to make something that is a valid expression of yourself, strictly no front or ulterior motive. "Tea Breakz and Zoot Beats" is a collection of audio pleasure for your eardrums ranging from some Chillin' Billin' beats perfect for kickin back after a tedious day and wrappin a zooby while you reflect and take a breath - to some straight boom bap bangers ta get your head noddin' and them flows tricklin'.
