Although I’ve never worn a durag, I must say this is by far genius of The Alchemist. A video that displays fifteen people sporting their durags fifteen different ways. I felt a sense of familiarity with the people that were in this video. You would too. It’s quite rad to see all of these people simply because they all each seem to have a unique story about them. The video’s director Ricky Shabazz and the Boom Bap Boys did an excellent job with the focus of it.
No matter how different we all are, we can still share the same tendencies no matter what the circumstance. We may cut corners to look good, but at least us folks try. The video set in sunny side California features cameos by Evidence of Dilated Peoples, an hysterical scene of self-proclaimed rap singer Action Bronson rocking the “Shiesty Albanian Rag” as he swipes a wave brush across his beard and bald head effortlessly. My personal favorites were the “Nomadic Rag” and the “Urban Ninja Rag”. These are the most common styles that I witness.
