Shabazz Palaces Announce Sub Pop Debut
Published Mar 08, 2011Last September, iconic indie imprint Sub Pop announced its foray in to the world of hip-hop through the signing of Seattle's Shabazz Palaces. Led by former Digable Planets rhymer Ishmael "Butterfly" Butler, the Seattle-based hip-hop project were all set to follow up their 2009 Of Light and Shabazz Palaces EPs with a full-length sometime in 2011. Fast-forward a few months and you will find the band are now ready to drop their Sub Pop debut, Black Up.
