Mos Def - The Ecstatic
Regarded as one of the most insightful artists of our time, musician, activist and actor Mos Def has captured the attention of critics and audiences alike with a celebrated body of work that has crossed all artistic genres - from music to the Broadway stage, film and television. In 1996, Mos Def and Talib Kweli formed Black Star, whose debut release would become one of the most critically acclaimed hip-hop albums of a generation. Propelled by the brilliant "Life in Marvelous Times," THE ECSTATIC, his fouth solo album, marks Mos Def's long-anticipated return to pure rhyming. The album finds Mos as poetic and confident as ever. Guest appearances include Slick Rick, Talib Kweli, and the Neptunes' Chad Hugo.
