This was easily one of my favorite tracks from 2009. I mean it doesn’t get much better than Mos and Kweli on a Dilla beat. The video itself is pretty simple, but it goes nicely with the single off of the Grammy nominated album. I really hope Ecstatic wins Best Hip Hop Album, but I’m not sure if he will win. This will not be the last we hear from Talib Kweli and Mos Def, as there is supposed to be another Black Star album in the works. I’m not expecting it to drop soon, but maybe at the end of the year. Let’s hope.

Music doesn’t get much better than this. Mos Def, Talib Kweli, and J Dilla all on one track is just mind blowing. Mos Def’s album The Ecstatic drops next Tuesday but it leaked today. Unfortunately there are some rumors circulating the web waves that Mos has pushed the album back to August because of the leak. I find it kind of unlikely since it is so close to the release date. Besides the leak, I really can’t describe how nice this song is, you just need to listen to it. It is kind of short, but that is how most J Dilla songs are. RIP J Dilla, this track is amazing.
