As I said earlier, I was going to be at Best Buy at some point today purchasing the new Mos Def album, The Ecstatic. Well, I went earlier and only found seven albums left, which is a pretty good sign that Mos has been doing good on sales so far. After having The Ecstatic playing in my car non stop for the past four hours, I am quite pleased with the quality of music on the album. Mos Def, you have done it once again, but honestly, I am not too surprised because you are one of the illest emcees.
I really do encourage you to get out and to buy this album. Mos Def’s The Ecstatic is an album of pure poetry, lyrics, and flow, and if you like hip hop whatsoever (not the bubble gum, Soulja Boy/Flo Rida kind), then get out and support the Boogie Man. If I were asked to rate the album, on a scaled of 1-10, and 10 being the best, I would easily rate it with a 9.
Also, if you are too lazy to get out and support Mos, then check out Amazon, and download the MP3 version for only $3.99.
As a side note, I bought the Lady GaGa album as well. I am very pleased with the quality of her album as well.
