Shabazz Palaces - Black Up

And one of the MCs from Digable Planets (previous post), Ishmael Butler, has a new project. This is hip hop way out of left field, with strange production and odd vocal effects here and there, though it never veers into "weird for the sake of being weird" territory. The whole album just has a strange feeling about it, like its some kind of afrocentric aliens work or something. Really cool album though, one of the more interesting releases of 2011.
