Owwwww shiiiiit! Official soulfoodcook Mos Def dropped the fantastic new album 'The Ecstatic' featuring some beats Madlib made under his Beatkonducta-moniker. This combination of lyrical and musical genius results in a number of absolute bangers like 'Auditorium' (ft. UK oldschool rap phenomenon Slick Rick) and 'The Embassy'. Mighty Mos' topics and delivery on these tracks immediately remind us of the 'BlackStar'- and 'Black on Both Sides'-albums we absolutely adored. I can't say the whole album is as brilliant as these 2 tracks, but if Dante keeps on focusing on music these next years we might see the return of the real black star.
