New Shabazz Video + Tour Dates

Shabazz Palaces have made quite the impression over the last year or so since the unheralded release of their first EP in select Seattle record stores. 2011’s Black Up was a resounding success, and the duo is now one of the most critically acclaimed groups in both the hip hop and Pitchfork crowds. Part of the Shabazz appeal is their unique visual aesthetic and today, we are graced with visuals for Black Up standout “are you… can you… were you? (felt).” The video features some beautiful Seattle imagery, a beautiful protagonist, and more. As if the video isn’t enough to satiate our need for savant, the duo announced a few dozen new tour dates across the US, Canada and Europe.
