Radiohead Channels a Fourth Dimension with Extraordinary Performance at Shrine Auditorium

With out even reading the bio on Shabazz Palaces’ new album, Black Up, I instantly thought of one of my favorite hip hop acts, Digable Planets. The rhymes were as smooth as hot buttah’ on a bread roll and the beats were exotically tight. After doing my research I was even more stoked to learn […]
