Is this record worth a spin? Should I buy it? Will it add to or detract
from my credibility? Should I care?
I wish someone could break it down for me.

Shabazz Palaces- Black Up

Over-hyped space rap, stepped in static laptop beats, R&B samples, and found sounds from former Digable Planets dude. cLOUDDEAD was doing this ten years ago, albeit with murkier beats and self-effacing lyrics. This is definitely rap aimed at a white audience.

Buy this record if the club doesn't have vodka service and you want to burn one out in the parking lot but it's too cold.
