Last year, Shabazz Palaces created one of the most interesting sounds in hip-hop, and they did it without following trends or mimicking the cool sound. Since then, hip-hop has twisted itself up into some interesting shapes, but no one has come close to that unique sonic zone.
If you’re craving more of that style, check out Seattle’s Kingdom Crumbs. Focused more an overall aesthetic than a singular notion of lyricism or production, these guys have captured something pretty special. Watch the new video for “Evoking Spirits…” below, courtesy of Live For The Funk, then give their whole album (available for a price of your choice) a listen.
