Shabazz Palaces – “Fast Learner” (Feat. Purple Tape Nate)

These Overlooked Black Women Shaped Malcolm X’s Life

The anniversary of the Feb. 21, 1965, assassination of Malcolm X was surrounded by a renewed wave of interest in the black nationalist leader’s life and death — particularly with the release of the recent Netflix series Who Killed Malcolm X? and the subsequent news that the Manhattan District Attorney will review the investigation of his death. But while the Netflix series attempts to provide a broad overview of his life, political activism and relationship with Elijah Muhammad and the Nati...

Porter's Head: Rapper Porter Ray on His Latest Hip-Hop Opus, 'Eye of the Beholder'

None His talent caught the eye and ears of a kindred spirit, Ishmael Butler of Shabazz Palaces and Digable Planets, who clearly saw much of himself in the young upstart. Indeed, Porter Ray possesses a similarly skewed vision of hip-hop upheld by his far more experienced mentor. But Ray is wise beyond his years, exhibiting a firm sense of self which translates effortlessly in the recording studio. Butler, also an A&R at Sub Pop Records, brought the young rapper onboard at the label in 2015. Ray'...

How an invite-only meeting at Apple's luxury loft in New York set the stage for one of the world's biggest subscription businesses (AAPL)

JPEGMAFIA playing Afropunk BK & other dates (stream his great album 'Veteran')

He's inventive as both a producer and a rapper, and he gives Veteran an experimental, abstract feel that should have Shabazz Palaces fans at the edge of their seats. But he also rivals any handful of conscious rappers and hardcore rappers, dishing out lines about racism, the alt-right, politics, and gentrification that are dripping with venom.

Shabazz Palaces - "Since C.A.Y.A." (Singles Going Steady)

Adriane Pontecorvo : Afrofuturist imagery and lyrics that occasionally distort into the abstract make for a dark and dissonant vision on "Since C.A.Y.A." Thundercat's guest bass dances with electronic beats, and the whole track winds back in on itself from every direction over its course, a spherical world of hip-hop for androids and aliens. Those space-age synths are what really make this an attention-grabber, but even aside from them, it's a fantastic cacophony. [8/10] ...
