In 2017, local rapper Case Bargé issued a music video for “Manifest,” a tune that addresses issues such as politics, religion and “today’s media.” Last year, he followed it up with a music video for the equally profound “You & I.”

Now, he’s just released yet another ambitious music video. This one is for the track "Ascension.” Clevelander Santino M Cash shot the video in Los Angeles.

In it, Bargé heads out to the desert on a spiritual journey to a tree where he meditates. The video ends with a clip of Bargé's baby boy walking on the beach.

Next month, Bargé will perform as part of the Museum of Contemporary Art's 50th anniversary celebration that takes place on Feb. 9. He'll also perform on Feb. 23 at Brite Winter Fest with local musicians Jul Big Green and Niko serving as his backing band.

Bargé's EP Transcend will come out in March.
