The Truth Music Daily Rap Banger: Mos Def – Travellin Man-Memories

First song we ever heard from M Deffa and quite frankly, if he never made another record after this we would still think he was a great rapper (on a random sidenote: Black on Both Sides > True Magic > The New Danger > The Ecstatic….yup, we said it)

    Whoa, you’re saying The Ecstatic is his worst album??? I was thinking it was the second best behind Black On Both Sides.

    Get em Coy… I was listening to that new Mos yesterday at it was hitting hard. Also, how about something from the Houston homie Scarface? I would love to hear something off of ‘The Fix’ (2002).

    Yeah, you definitely need to listen again. The Ecstatic is one of the years best albums (see: Grammy nod), if not the best imo along with OBCL2, The Foundation and BP3.

    Frankly, The Ecstatic is to 2009 what The Renaissance was to 2008. Yup.
