Show Review

SubPop label-mate Chad VanGaleen lends his animation skills to the video for Shabazz Palaces' "Forerunner Foray." From dirty city blocks to an extra terrestrial world where pizza, the lakers, and ancient Egypt carefully collide.

Artist Bio

Shabazz Palaces are a Seattle-based hip-hop collective, led by Ishmael Butler aka 'Palaceer Lazaro' (once 'Butterfly' of jazz-rap group Digable Planets) and multi-instrumentalist Tendai 'Baba' Maraire, son of Mbira master Dumisani Maraire.

The group anonymously self-released two EPs, Eagles Soar, Oil Flows and The Seven New (referred to as Shabazz Palaces and Of Light) in 2009 before becoming one of the few hip-hop acts to be signed to the Sub Pop label and releasing their debut full-length album, Black Up to wide critical acclaim in 2011. Black Up was listed #1 in Seattle Times music columnist Andrew Matson's "Local Top #10" of 2011.
