Shabazz Palaces (2012)

Seattle, WA

Shabazz Palaces' forward-thinking, futuristic hip hop shines like a black light at a crime scene, illuminating teeming multitudes of microorganisms and cultures that thrive just underneath our everyday lives. There’s a luxurious, pan-worldly texture to their compositions, which weave below nomad rhymes and slash-and-burn verses.
