Shabazz the Disciple was the first voice in "Diary of Madman," the debut album from The Gravediggas. In one verse, Shabazz killed you, stomped on your corpse and threatened to buck you down if you tried to haunt him. It wasn't one of those rhymes you easily forget.
Shabazz built on his notoriety and released two singles on Penalty Recordings. He was promoting his first track,"Death be the Penalty," when he came to the Phono Booth Record Store in 1993.
Shabazz explains his opening verse on the Gravediggas single along with the religious imagery and symbolism in his debut clip.
