This is some very intriguing music. I am still learning about Shabazz Palaces as we speak.

Very straight forward, yes, but nearly every word has a deeper meaning to it. One could spend forever trying to analyse their songs.

Max Peters says:

when kinge took off his glasses it got me thinking of stringer bell haha

SuperMario16bit says:

This is the guy from Digable Planets? That is sick love Reachin’ and Blowout Comb. Glad most of the guys like this, unlike Death Grips however heheheheh.

MrsPlaidpants says:

Stringer Bell with the dramatic look away.

What’s so hard to understand about Shabazz? The lyrics are pretty straight forward.

MrConshunce says:

I subscribed off the strength of this one video. I love the idea that you guys flesh out every point and the mention of Def Jux was definitely appreciated. Let me get to the other videos!

Sulfuric Acid says:

c-town is right… this is an excellent album for cannabis consumption.

dark field says:

brings me back to when hip hop was fearless and could go anywhere and do anything.

mttpdgtt says:

‘you just kanye’d the fuck out of me’ hahaha

Trill Swayze says:

The record label definitive jux lead by El-P the reason why he mentions them is because of there different approach to hip-hop with having a experimental old school hip-hop meets electronica type production to and mostly a different take on hip-hop throughout the whole label.

Dhyan Patel says:

Beezy looks like Akon and Kanye West mix.

Verty says:

>he owns beats by dre
What a foolio.

Dan Citi says:

It is definitely hip-hop, but very much outside of the box in all the right ways.

Baku Takamine says:

I love this show because it reminds me stupid of me and my cousins, the way they bitch at each other for interrupting and other stupid shit like that haha it’s great, it’s real shit.

Rajay Visavadia says:

I love how the actual album is playing quietly in the background

Michael Puro says:

I think it bumps in the whip

DigiFrat says:

This was one of the best albums I’ve heard Ever!
I just wish this was one of those 20+ minute episodes.

Track 2 slams in the whip soo good.
