Where Shabazz Palaces’ debut Sub-Pop release, Black Up, was mesmerizing but at times a
bit challenging, Lese Majesty sees
the group polishing their sound just enough to make it extremely accessible,
yet completely unlike any other artist in hip-hop today. The beats are some of
the most expansive and brilliant we’ve encountered, and immediately bring to
mind some of the more abstract production concepts of the legendary, El-P. In
addition to the unbelievably wild song composition, Palaceer Lazaro continues
to meticulously craft lyrics that seem to perfectly navigate and weave through
these sonic masterpieces as only a truly brilliant rapper can.
