Shabazz the Disciple or Scientific Shabazz, is a rapper from the Red Hook Houses of Red Hook, Brooklyn.[1] He is an original member of the Sunz of Man and Da Last Future.


Shabazz is possibly best known for his guest appearance on the 1994 Gravediggaz hit single "Diary of a Madman," and for his controversial 1995 single "Death be the Penalty." He formed the duo the Disciples with Killah Priest, and later formed Celestial Souljahz with Freestyle of the Arsonists.[2]

Shabazz released a handful of singles in the mid-90s, such as "Death be the Penalty", "Crime Saga", "The Lamb's Blood" and "Street Parables", in anticipation of his planned 1998 debut LP on GZA's GZA Entertainment imprint. However, the label folded and his relationship with the Clan soon strained, leading him to cut his Wu-affiliated ties.[3] He is also known for being an influence on the late Big Pun.

Shabazz finally released his debut album, The Book of Shabazz (Hidden Scrollz), in 2003, featuring his past singles "The Lamb's Blood," "Crime Saga," "Street Parables," and "Organized Rime Part 2," as well as the single "Red Hook Day" b/w "Thieves in da Nite (Heist)." In 2008, Shabazz formed the group T.H.U.G. Angels with fellow Sunz of Man member Hell Razah and producer Ayatollah. The group's debut, Welcome to Red Hook Houses, was released July 8, 2008, on Babygrande Records. Shabazz has a new album coming out in 2011 called Thug Bible LP
