Two EPs and just a pair of local shows into their existence, Shabazz Palaces -- the Seattle hip-hop duo featuring Digable Planets' Ishmael Butler -- have inked a deal with Sub Pop Records. Their full-length debut is due via the label sometime next year.
In a press release this morning, Butler, AKA "The Palaceer" and "Palaceer Lazaro" says:
"I think we both have a lot of love, appreciation, respect and energy for music and for each other. Recognizing the fact that business is necessary for maximizing exposure to it, I think we mutually feel that doing business is less a 'job' and more an opportunity to exercise those feelings in dope ass ways."
