“Casa Bey” (Live on Fallon) (Video)

    Mos Def is previewing tracks from his recently released album, The Ecstatic, on late night talk shows this week. Last night’s performance on Jimmy Fallon’s show was a remarkable change of pace compared to his prior appearance on Letterman, which was considerably darker than this exuberant workout.

    Backed by the Roots, Mos Def performs the final track on The Ecstatic, “Casa Bey.” It sounds like he’s about to break into a few lines from “Hey Jude” at the end of the track, although the subtle lyric change should keep Lennon and McCartney’s lawyers at bay. The Ecstatic is out now on Downtown Records.
