    Product Details

    Summary

    Herein bumps and soars Lese Majesty, the new sonic action of Shabazz Palaces. Honed and primal, chromed and primo. A unique and glorified offering into our ever-uniforming musical soundscape. Lese Majesty is a beatific war cry, born of a spell, acknowledging that sophistication and the instinctual are not at odds; Indeed an undoing of the lie of their disparate natures.

    Lese Majesty is not a launching pad for the group's fan base increasing propaganda. It is a series of astral suites, recorded happenings, shared. A dare to dive deep into Shabazz Palaces sounds, vibrations unfettered. A dope-hex thrown from the compartments that have artificially contained us all and hindered our sublime collusion.

    These reveries were sent to Palaceer Lazaro and Fly Guy 'Dai in the year of gun beat battles in excess; In a succession of days, whilst walking in dreams and in varied transcendental states....(every minute of every day is filled with observation and composition. In action). Songs are committed and gathered by robots at Protect and Exalt Labs, a Black Space in Seattle, Washington.

    The visual features of Lese Majesty are resultant of the gleanings of fellow Constellationaire, Nep Sidhu.

    The Black Constellation squads up, protects and exalts the messages within, and colludes accordingly. We thank you.

    Comment: So glad I bought this used...it sounds like this dude just made ONE BEAT! ONE SINGLE BOOM BOOM CLAP - BEAT! And put a whole bunch of sh*t over it for the time span of 45 minutes, Dropped the beat out when he got tired of hearing it, and then finally set up the mic and started saying a bunch of weird or repetitive sh*t over it. This album bores the hell out of me, and I wish to god I had bought anything else. Anyone giving this praise is f*cking deaf... if you can make it past the first 3 nauseating tracks. Congratulations - you beat my record. Please, let's stop endorsing sh*tty hip hop albums, I don't care if this guy is a Digable Planet, this album sucks.

    Comment: The dopest. For those who remember the golden age, late eighties, when biting wasn't acceptable, this is originality. This is the future. Love it from start to finish. Takes big brass ones to do your own thing. Love the black new wave sound. An actual hip hop album with rap songs not just beats and rhymes. Completely different vibe and sound from the last album, but is Shabazz. Spaced out dope sh*t. Took me a minute to get with it. Squares wouldn't feel it.

    Comment: Doesn't even pretend to be rap, spaced out Gonjasufi type sh*t. Indecipherable EDM crapfest, put down the Koran and pick up the Molly. Bullsh*t.

    Comment: Good album from start to finish. I like that they still aren't copying anyone's style at all and doing it 100% their own style on a major (not hip hop label). One of the very few Seattle hip hop artists currently that actually gets played on the radio that doesn't sound exactly identical to the next guy. Seattle's current style of hip hop that actually gets exposure on the radio unfortunately only includes 16 and 17 year old rappers that rap slow and copy down south fake thug BS with only 4 topics, weed, codeine, hoes and money. At a time when Seattle's hip hop scene is at it's all time worst in history these guys are keeping it real without having to say it while the next Seattle hip hop artist has to say how real they are wile keeping it real fake.
