For those unfamiliar with the musical résumé of Mos Def, we suggest you check out his legendary work on Black on Both Sides, which provides all the introduction Booth-heads should need. On February 10, 2009, this talented emcee will return with his fourth solo album, The Ecstatic. On the project’s first single, Mos paints a visual picture of Brooklyn, New York, in 1982, complete with all the low-level apartments, street scuffles, and love lost that, to the artist born Dante Smith, add up to Life in Marvelous Times. To match his classic lyricism, producer Mr. Flash supplies a beat that screams “epic” – fitting for a comeback record that fans have been longing for. Check back with the Booth over the next three months for more Ecstatic features and an exclusive interview.
