Bio

Shabazz Palaces are a Seattle-based hip-hop collective, led by Ishmael Butler aka 'Palaceer Lazaro' (once 'Butterfly' of Grammy award winning jazz-rap group Digable Planets) and multi-instrumentalist Tendai Maraire, son of Mbira master Dumisani Maraire. The group anonymously self-released two EPs, Eagles Soar, Oil Flows and The Seven New (often referred to simply as Shabazz Palaces and Of Light) in 2009 before becoming the first hip-hop act to be signed to the Sub Pop label and releasing their debut full-length album, Black Up, in 2011.
