Multi-talented emcee Mos Def will return from a 3 year hiatus with his 4th studio album, The Ecstatic.
Mos debuted two new tracks courtesy of his Myspace page (www.myspace.com/mosdef): the Mr. Flash produced Life In Marvelous Times, and Quiet Dog Bite Hard, produced by Preservation.
Both songs are available for download via iTunes and RCRD LBL (http://rcrdlbl.com/).
The new LP will also mark the 10 year anniversary of the Brooklynites celebrated debut album, Black On Both Sides.
That project spawned the popular singles Ms. Fat Booty and Umi Says.
Mos last album, 2006's True Magic, was released with no promotion or CD cover per the rappers request.
Currently, Mos Def is diligently formalizing an official U.S. tour, along with a finalized tracklisting for the new LP.
The Ecstatic is rumored to feature additional production from Madlib, Oh No, Chad Hugo, J Dilla, and Kanye West.
At recent shows, Mos Def has also performed tracks slated to feature Slick Rick (Auditorium) and Talib Kweli (History).
At press time, The Ecstatic is scheduled for release on June 30.
