Coming Soon!
MOS DEF - The Ecstatic Tour
Grammy Award-nominated rapper, actor and poet Mos Def has announced The Ecstatic Tour. His first ever headline tour of Australia, The Ecstatic Tour has been titled in support of his current album of the same name. Released June 09, ‘The Ecstatic’ (his 4th studio album to date) just earned Def a 2010 Grammy Award nomination for Best Rap Album. Rolling Stone magazine named it the seventeenth best album of 2009.

The Ecstatic Tour is the first time Mos Def has been in Australia since he was out this way with DJ Shadow in 2006. This is his first headline Australian tour.

As a solo artist he has released the albums ‘Black on Both Sides’ in 1999, ‘The New Danger’ in 2004, ‘True Magic’ in 2006 and ‘The Ecstatic’ in 2009. In recent news, for his next album, Def has just signed on with Kanye West's G.O.O.D. Music imprint. (Via Consequence of Sound.) West and Mos have collaborated several times, most recently on the G.O.O.D. Friday track "Lord Lord Lord". Mos has taken on something of a spiritual adviser role for Kanye as of late -- in a recent Tweet about his "Power" remix verse Kanye wrote, "Mos helped me find the 'old me' lyrically."

Initially recognized for his musical output, Mos Def’s screen work since the early 2000s has established him as one of only a handful of rappers who have garnered critical approval for their acting work. Brown Sugar, Monster’s Ball, The Italian Job, The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy and the HBO made-for-TV film Something The Lord Made have been particularly acclaimed by critics.
