    What, lyrically handsome, call collect a king's ransom
    Jams I write soon become the ghetto anthem
    Way out like Bruce Wayne's mansion, move like a phantom
    You'll talk about me to your grandsons
    Cats who claimin they hard be mad fag
    so I run through em like, flood water through sandbags
    Competition is mad, what I got, they can't have
    Sinkin they ship, like Moby Dick, did Ahab
    Son I'm way past the minimum, it's a verb millenium
    My rap's hold a gat to your back, like Palestinians
    Ancient Abyssinia, sure to hold the Gideon
    Official b-boy gentlemen, long term, never the interim
    Born inside the winter wind, day after December 10
    These simpletons they mentionin the synonym for feminine
    Sweeter than some cinnamon from Danish rings by Entenmann's
    Rush up on adrenaline, they get they asses sent to them
    (Gentlemen) you got a tenement, well then assemble it!
    Leave your unit tremblin like herds of movin elephant
    Intelligent embellishment, follow for your element

    "was" and "used to be"? sounds right...now he takes feeding tubes up the nose to defend terrorists. Mos was one of the dopest, but hasn't been special since Black on Both Sides. And as much as I despise your posts...this is prob my favorite verse from Mos

    The Ecstatic was ok, but nothing special to me...I just didn't vibe with it like his earlier stuff. Haven't checked it in a while tho, maybe I'll go thru it again now and see if my feelings on it change.

    Black on Both Sides is one of the best rap albums of all time.

    He set the bar too damn high with that album. Ecstatic is great, but still pales in comparison.

    I always liked Talib Kweli more than Mos Def, I never liked his vocals enough. I also preferred General Steele and AZ. Sabac Red is one of my favorite rappers of all time, he's very under-rated. Also The Jaz (AKA Jaz-O) is probably the most over-looked Hip-Hop pioneer. A 90s Jay-Z would've beat Mos Def in a battle.

    still no comparison, but a strong album

    Mos' best material was on Black on Both Sides, Black Star and that 4 disc bootleg - 'We Are Hip Hop, Me, You, Everybody'
