Shabazz Palaces - "Ham Sandwich"
Shabazz Palaces resurfaced just ahead of the new year to address police brutality and dress down crooked cops on the new track “Ham Sandwich.” The track stands on the sturdy shoulders of the classic drum break and channels the urgency of revolutionary cuts like Public Enemy‘s “Bring The Noise” and The Roots‘ “Panic” while retaining the otherworldly signature and inherent cool Shabazz Palaces fans have come to expect. Dense with buzzing subs and ghastly effects, “Ham Sandwich” finds frontman Palaceer Lazaro levitating as the Palaces broadcast their indictment of the pigs from a perch somewhere up above the fray.
