YO! TUNEDR RAPS
A lot of Hip Hop acts these days tend to follow a tried and trusted formula so it's rare to find an act like Shabazz Palaces who are original, innovative and fresh. They are among a rare breed of underground Hip Hop acts this year that have come through and are not afraid to break the mould. Although not a big fan, the rather rude and controversial, don't take him home to meet your gran, Tyler, The Creator and his crew are another example of an artist not afraid to push the boundaries. What I like about them is that they inject some life, in a genre which is increasingly becoming monotonous with pretty much everyone sounding and saying the same thing.
I've been listening to Shabazz Palaces's album, Black Up, over the last few months and it's taken a little effort due to it's non-conformist style but the obscure beats and soundscapes make for rewarding listening. In fact, if you ever wondered what what Hip Hop would sound like if it was on Star Wars this is it, Jabba the Hutt would book them.
