Product Details

Summary

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. Forward thinkers but nostalgic for a sparer time when ancient astronomers only recognized five planets. Hip hop. Black light uses electromagnetic radiation to eradicate microorganisms, but shabazz didn't come to kill a sound, just to shine their own incandescent lamp on this. Hear. Hard and clear. Fifty thousand years in the making. Honorable.-palaceer pink gators. Produced by Knife Knights.plcrs at Gunbeat Serenade Studio in Outplace Palacelands. It was recorded and mixed in Lixx-alog by Blood.

Comment: One of my favorite Hip-Hop albums of 2011. Pure avant garde sh*t. Huge comeback for Butterfly, thought he was gone by the wayside. Him hooking up with Knife Knights.plcrs and creating music will influence the future of hip hop!

Comment: Utterly and absolutely brilliant. The ep Of Light was an amazing feat in its own right and I was worried the shabazz wouldn't be able to live up to the promise they initially delivered, but here it is, and it exceeds the creativity, innovation, and invention of their first release. Yep, we've got a true winner here.

Comment: this album listens like a self explanatory 5 ... Butterfly fro Digi Planets to Camp Lo, to Cherrywine, so unreleased sessions continues to make Hip Hop cooler than hipsters, swag, and whatever slang is pop culturally used to say who got that Jazz

Comment: most innovative hip hop LP in history, beautifull from start to finish. Free press and Echo ruled hard. I wish more artists climbing the geniality of Butterfly

Comment: This artist, plain and simple, is the NEW SHIT! As underground Hip-Hop fans, we all search for the groundbreaking, creative stuff that is different from the 4,000 albums we're heard before, and this guy CHANGES THE GAME. DO yourself a favor and buy all of his stuff NOW, you can thank me later.
