Simmer down simmer down simmer down...

Mos Def was on Letterman last night (6/8) and rocked out on the timpanis performing "Quiet Dog." TOTALLY rocked it and made me love him even more. Plus the Fela Kuti intro was pretty sweet too.

As I said in my previous post, his new album The Ecstatic, dropped earlier today. It's pretty on point, minus a 3 song lull towards the end. After the track "Pretty Dancer" he kind of tunes out until "History" with Talib Kweli. Secretly (or not so secretly) I want there to be a Black Star reunion album sooo badly, so whenever Mos and Talib team up it makes me happy. The first six or seven tracks are definitely the best, and I'm sure they will move into my regular rotation quickly. Overall I give the album 3 1/2 out of 4....because maybe the 3 songs I hate will grow on me. But it's definitely a very very solid album. Buy it here...it's only $3.99....
