Mos Def New Album, New Track “Boogie Man”

“The name of the album is The Ecstatic. I titled it after one of my favorite novels by Victor LaValle and I’m really excited about it — it’s a lot shorter than some of my previous work but it’s still really full. [Guests include] Slick Rick, Jay Electronica, Black Thought and working with Madlib.”

“For 2009, I got a couple of different projects on deck. Definitely looking forward to bringing ‘Def Poetry’ back to television for at least one more season. I’d like to do it in New Orleans in the ninth ward.” (Zune Insider)
Mos Def will release his Downtown debut, The Ecstatic, on Feb. 9. The first single, “Life in Marvelous Times,” hit iTunes as an exclusive on Nov. 4. (Billboard)
