Mos Def – The Ecstatic

September 20, 2009

Mos Def - The Ecstatic LP (includes a free DL card for the whole album on 320kbps MP3)

Thank goodness Mos Def is back to his Hip Hop roots on his newest LP entitled The Ecstatic. He doesn’t disappoint with the usual thought provoking rhymes about topics most MCs wouldnt have a clue about.  The production is varied from track to track with Madlib, Oh No, Mr Flash and Preservation doing the majority of the arabic / indian / soundtrack flavoured music. The standout tracks for me are the collab with Slick Rick  – Auditorium (Rick the ruler KILLS it with the story telling) and The Embassy, but to be fair the entire LP is wicked. This is an album for peoples that were into Black On Both Sides or enjoy conscious lyrics…..
