    Comparing and contrasting images of the city with a tropical enclave, human practices versus underfed, processed animals, the latest video by Shabazz Palaces is not for a particular song from Black Up, but the entire album. Drawing from snippets of multiple songs, neither the perplexing visuals nor the luxurious yet crunchy audible stays in one place for long. Through this freedom, no demand to stick to a solitary vision, the video says a lot, drawing on racial themes and devising eternal allegorical links—that everything here "points to a connection in space."
