Mos Def joined up with the Roots for a live version of “Casa Bey” on Jimmy Fallon’s show this week. Andrew Martin says of Mos Def’s newest album, “The Ecstatic feels like the album Mos has always wanted and intended to make. It’s experimental and progressive without being too left-field and isolating. It’s hip-hop without being a photocopy of what he’s released in the past. Simply put, it’s Mos being Mos: Equal parts oddball and genius, even with his flaws.”
