Sub Pop-signed avante-garde rap group Shabazz Palaces unleashed a brand new song, “Bop Hard”, while making a stop at Seattle’s KEXP radio station the other day. The song features lush instrumentation and Palaceer Lazaro’s thought-provoking rhymes. If you aren’t already familiar with the group’s catalog, now would be a good time to check out their newly-released debut album, Black Up, out now via Sub Pop. It’s been hailed by many to be this year’s greatest rap album.
