Shabazz Palaces dropped by The New Parish this week for two nights to celebrate the release of their second-full length album Lese Majesty. Serving as an unofficial record release party, Tuesday night’s headlining show marked an important moment for the experimental hip-hop collective out of the Pacific Northwest. After catching the attention of the renowned Sub Pop Records back in 2011, Ishmael Butler — who some may know as “Palaceer Lazaro” or “Butterfly” during his time with Digable Planets — and Tendal “Baba” Marair have built a fan base that has grown far and wide since its 2011 debut Black Up. Kory Thibeault was in Oakland to catch the duo’s second show before Butler and Marair headed north for their native Seattle.
