Mos Def – ‘Workers Comp.’ & ‘History’ ft. Talib Kweli
taken from The Ecstatic (Downtown, 2009)

What’s this?! Digital Existence has landed a forceful jab and hook to the otherwise relentless onslaught of Real Life? It’s the comeback of the century!

Well, maybe the week.  But this new Mos Def album has got me all excited and I had to briefly give it due props in case you’ve ignored it due to the dubious charms (read: I didn’t like either of them) of The New Danger andTrue Magic.  I’m loving The Ecstatic right now.  Save for a few missteps the beats are good to great growers and Mos is blistering throughout.  You can hear that DOOM obsession in full force here and it works wonders.  The prophet has returned! Do. Not. Sleep.

Oh, back up a minute… a group of solicitors and a mortgage exchange seem to be hovering around the edge of the ring.  Digital Existence’s brief flurry of activity looks set to take a trouncing: brace yourself buddy, this could get nasty.
