Emerging from the rubble, few expected Palaceer Lazaro (aka Ishmael "Butterfly" Butler formerly of Digable Planets) to gain such notoriety with Shabazz Palaces. Unparalleled by any musical act, Shabazz Palaces constantly pushes the limits of funk, hip-hop, jazz and world music, straying away from typical song structures in favor of more creative endeavors.

In 2010, Seattle publication, The Stranger, honored the group with the first ever Music Genius Award. "Shabazz Palaces don't have to tear up the block; they energize the scene without breaking a sweat," states Larry Mizell, Jr. of The Stranger.” - UndergroundHipHop.com

“The beats here take equal cues from the blown-out sci-fi dystopia of Company Flow, the harsh static antagonism of Anti-Pop Consortium and Dälek, and Los Angeles' Brainfeeder collective's head-swimming ganja burn. Impeccable reference points-- and the way they're synthesized is impressive-- but these abstract beats have never been easy to convincingly rap over. But Lazaro handles it with intensity on every track here, moving with the rhythm no matter how irregular it may be.” - Pitchfork
