Ok, OK…So I know that I am a little late with this considering that this video dropped about a week and a half ago, but this had to be posted Like the title insists, hearing this music and watching this video makes this particular hip-hoppa excited about "The Ecstatic" dropping June 9th. As many of you already know, Mos has always maintained a level of heightened creativity and lyrical prowess. Once again Mos delivers and (in my humble opinion) exceeds expectations with the single Casa Bey. According to nah right, on a recent trip to South America, Mos linked up with Brazilian MC, MV Bill, gave him a tape with Banda Black Rio's "Casa Forte" on it;the song from which is sampled in Casa Bey. He loved the song so much, that after coming back to the states, he linked up with DJ preservation to cut up the beat. So if you happened to fall asleep on this originative genius, then its time to wake up. We here at the Okie Doke guarantee you wont be disappointed. Keep Listening ;)

Genius Loves Company, Real recognize Real, call it what you want, but I find it pretty cool that Mos is geeking over DOOM
