The Black Constellation consists of Shabazz Palaces, THEESatisfaction and artist/director Maikoiyo Alley-Barnes. “Sparkles…Recollections Of The Wraith” is Part 12 of an installation dedicated to science fiction writer Octavia Butler. The visuals are luxurious in color and combine an earthly and ethereal reality awareness much like Butler’s sci-fi narratives.




Detroit-born but Minnesota based singer/rapper Lizzo is releasing her first album LIZZOBANGERS this summer. “T-Baby” is the first single from her collaboration with Lazerbeak,Ryan Olson and Cliff Rhymes.
