This Seattle duo takes hip hop into uncharted territory.

Shabazz Palaces is a Hip Hop duo consisting of Ishmael Butler ( formerly of Digable Planets) and Tendai "Baba" Maraire.  Their experimental sounds expand the reach of what hip hop can be.  While very short in listening time this album packs a great deal of musical ideas into that space.  Fans of underground hip hop and electronic music should definitely give this a listen.
