Shabazz Palaces "Ham Sandwich"
Published Dec 31, 2014Didn't get your fill of Shabazz Palaces this year, even despite the release of their Lese Majesty LP? Well, the Seattle hip-hop crew apparently had one last trick up their sleeves for 2014, and have just issued a single called "Ham Sandwich."
Backed by a body-moving break and uncomfortably eerie bass tones, the track starts with rapper Palaceer Lazaro talking about getting no reception in a pig-filled place. An allusion to the choking death of Eric Garner at the hands of the NYPD follows ("Pull out the camera phones and choke you out this place") before the track closes out with the addition of various out-there clanks.
