Regarded as one of the most insightful artists of our time, musician, activist and actor Mos Def has captured the attention of critics and audiences alike with a celebrated body of work that has crossed all artistic genres – from music to the Broadway stage, film and television. From his legendary 1998 Black Star collaboration with Talib Kweli to his acclaimed first three solo albums - Black on Both Sides (1999), The New Danger (2004) and True Magic (2006) - which were credited with bringing hip-hop back to its soapbox roots, Mos Def has remained one of righteous hip-hop's leading lights.

His latest solo effort to date, the 2009 masterpiece The Ecstatic, finds the esteemed rapper further showcasing the intelligence, international fluency and unique ability to keep listeners on their toes that has set him apart since day one. Featuring the trio of singles "Life in Marvelous Times," "Quiet Dog Bite Hard" and "Casa Bey," it was universally hailed in the press by the likes of Esquire ("Because there is no better lyricist (or deliverer of lyrics) in music. Not hip-hop. Music."), SPIN ("The Ecstatic is easily his finest full length since Black on Both Sides"), TIME ("...full of the rhythm, exuberance and wit Mos Def showed on his early records.") and Giant ("a lyricist whose command of wordplay and delivery has ranked him among hip hop's elite...[The Ecstatic] is ahead of its time.")

Continuing with its vinyl reissue campaign UMe will be reissuing this hip-hop classic back on the format for the first time since its original pressing.
