    WATCH: Shabazz Palaces – “Black Up” Album Video Presentation.

    Shabazz Palaces - the creative seed of Ishmael Butler, formerly of Digable Planets - drops a compellingly artsy "Album Video Presentation" that our friends at Complex premiered earlier, but we couldn't resist re-posting. Alternating images both soothing (e.g. meditative ocean waves at dawn, lush rain forests, long-shadowed greenhouses) and jarring (e.g. slaughtered pigs in a butcher shop, folks queued up despondently on a Brooklyn BX street corner, prone bodies in the aforementioned lush rain forest) - and accompanied by passages from SP's inspired Black Up LP - it's either a poignant commentary about humanity, or the lost wonky episode of Lost . We celebrate its merits in either case.
