This video has sent me into a Shabazz Palaces/Digable Planets death spiral this week. In case you don’t know, Shabazz Palaces is a new Subpop group w Ishmael Butler from the 90′s hiphop group Digable Planets.
Also, this is Subpop’s awesome description of SP’s most recent album: Black Up is the new sonic move from Shabazz Palaces. Like rich velvet hijabs or gold threaded abayas. Luxury as understood by the modest. Shabazz Palaces. If Bedouins herded beats instead of goats and settled in Seattle instead of the Atlas Mountains, this would be their album.
