Shabazz Palaces & Flying Lotus – Vans Syndicate Short Film by Khalil Joseph

Fly Lo has exquisite taste in art and visuals. If you haven’t seen the original video for “Zodiac Shit” that was drawn up by the illustrator lilfuchs via commission from Adult Swim, you should definitely check that trippy number out. As for the avant-rap collective Shabazz Palaces led by Digable Planets/Cherrywine member Ishamel “Butterfly” Butler (who you see in this video), these guys have been making waves since they signed to Sub Pop last year. But they’ve turned those tides into something kinda tsunami-like since SXSW this year. The direction in the visuals for this Vans short is from Khalil Joseph, who also took the lead for Shabazz’s video for “Belhaven Meridian.” Skate + Sound = <3 4 eva.
