VIDEO: Noisey x Shabazz Palaces

by Winston "Stone" Ford

We first brought you Shabazz Palaces back in March before their stint at SXSW. SInce then, the duo’s album Black Up is hands down my favorite hip-hop project of the year. Led by the former Digable Planets member (don’t call him Butterfly) and now Seattle-based Sub Pop records signee the duo creates some of the most ear-bending hip-hop I’ve heard in a long time. The new music focused brand Noisey caught up with the group during a performance at Seattle’s Neumos club.

The five part series blends live performances with a rare interview and a general overview of Seattle’s emerging hip-hop scene. Check it, and buy Shabazz Palaces’s Black up today.
