Shabazz Palaces’ debut album Black Up has become one of my favourite albums of the year. Made up of Ishmael Butler (Digital Planets), and Tendai Maraire, their unique brand of alt-Hip Hop earned them wide spread critical acclaim and with good reason. They merge experimental sonics with purposeful, thematic lyricism, crafting a well thought out, creative body of work.
Here goes the video for the albums title track – one of my favourites off the LP. Can’t go wrong director with Kahil Joseph on board either, fantastic visuals accompany.
