Emcee, actor, poet and activist, MOS DEF, releases his 4th studio effort "The Ecstatic". "The Ecstatic" features minimal guests (Slick Rick, Talib Kweli & Georgia Anne Muldrow) and production by Madlib, J Dilla and OhNo among others. It is a sharp return to form for Mos Def with cutting, socio-political rhymes and insightful, almost spiritual themes. Make no mistake, Mos is at his finest with delivery, cadence and lyrical dexterity. Standout tracks include "Superamgic", "Casa Bey", "Auditorium" (feat. Slick Rick), "Priority" and "Pistola". "The Ecstatic" showcases Mos as he expresses his love for the craft and steadily explores new soundscapes.
