What lives within the mysterious Shabazz Palaces


Shabazz Palaces offers rays of hope, too. The chimerical glow of "Blastit" and the dreamy melodica of "Sparkles" posit the group's soulfulness as innate qualities worth defending with blood. On "A Mass," Palaceer raps, "Sometimes I hate my life, wish I ain't love it so much."
