Shabazz Palaces have shared a homemade video for “Chocolate Souffle,” a cut from their forthcoming album, The Don of Diamond Dreams.
The captivating five-minute clip, directed by David Shields and James Nugent, features MC Ishmael Butler rapping to the camera amidst a variety of trippy Snapchat filters and disorienting edits. “My phone’s really not that smart,” the rapper repeats on the chorus.
Shabazz Palaces previously released the Purple Tape Nate-assisted song, “Fast Learner,” which will also appear on The Don of Diamond Dreams. The upcoming album will be the duo’s first full-length release since their 2017 LPs Quazarz: Born on a Gangster Star and Quazarz vs the Jealous Machines.
The Don of Diamond Dreams arrives April 17 via Sub Pop. Watch the video for “Chocolate Souffle” here:
