Shabazz Palaces – “Forerunner Foray” Video

Seattle art-rappers Shabazz Palaces only ever make great videos, and their new clip for the Lese Majesty track “Forerunner Foray” is a fine entry into a growing body of work. The singer-songwriter and animator Chad VanGaalen put together the video, which uses the racial and astral themes of Shabazz Palaces’ music and turns them into a supremely bugged-out psychedelic collage. The video has no narrative connective thread, but it should keep you riveted regardless. The 2001 floating space-fetus might be the most normal thing we see during this clip. Suffice to say: This is a video where Magic Johnson rides a giant pizza slice through the galaxy. Watch it below.

Lese Majesty is out now on Sub Pop. Also worth noting: Shabazz Palaces will perform, and cut a live record, at Jack White’s Third Man headquarters in Nashville 1/17.
