When Cats Claw

Make a list of every metaphor you can come up for outer space and it has most likely been used to describe Shabazz Palaces.  Truthfully, I still can’t come up with something concise to tell you readers what to expect.  The only solution to this quandary is to listen and judge for yourself.
