“Casa Bey” (Video)

    Mos Def’s fourth solo album, The Ecstatic, is allegedly due out on June 9, and while most rap album release dates tend to be liquid, Mos has been riding the promotional train pretty hard for the album. Here’s the album’s debut video for “Casa Bey,” a flowing and bouncing track built on a dry soul sample. The clip is pretty simple; it focuses on Mos’s mouth, as he raps the song, spitting out shapes and letters. You know, because that’s how Mos Def gets down. [Pitchfork]
