With a recent Grammy nomination for best hip-hop album, Mos Def - a true hip-hop veteran, is enjoying some well-deserved success. After releasing critically-acclaimed records over a decade ago on the Rawkus label, Mos Def has made three major label albums, and his most recent--The Ecstatic has the highest first week sales of any of his releases. Oh no, the California-based producer and Stones Throw recording artist produced the beat for Supermagic, which follows "Quiet Dog" and "Casa Bey" as singles from the album. The video, directed by Dribblez & Weirdcore, features a series of stop motion images combined with trippy image trails of Mos Def delivering the complex wordplay.
