Shabazz Palaces are an American, Seattle-based experimental hip-hop group led by Ishmael Butler, aka Palaceer Lazaro (formerly Butterfly of jazz–hip hop group Digable Planets) and multi-instrumentalist Tendai "Baba" Maraire, son of Mbira master Dumisani Maraire.

The group anonymously self-released two EPs, 'Eagles Soar', 'Oil Flows' and 'The Seven New' (referred to as 'Shabazz Palaces' and 'Of Light', respectively) in 2009 before becoming one of the few hip-hop acts to be signed to the Sub Pop label and releasing their debut full-length album 'Black Up' to wide critical acclaim in 2011.
