Rapper Mos Def conjures "Magic" on new album

Tue Aug 8, 2006 5:27am ET

By Jonathan Cohen

NEW YORK (Billboard) - Rapper Mos Def makes an uncharacteristically quick return next month with a new studio album, "Tru3 Magic."

The Geffen Records set, due September 19, boasts production from Pharrell Williams, Kayne West and Rich Harrison, among others.

And while the track list has yet to be announced, "Tru3 Magic" will be led by the track "Boogie Man," a spare track featuring prominent piano lines, live drumming and shout-outs to Mos Def's native Brooklyn as well as newscaster Walter Cronkite.

"Tru3 Magic" is the follow-up to 2004's "The New Danger," which has sold 445,000 copies in the United States, according to Nielsen SoundScan. That was Mos Def's first solo album since 1999's acclaimed "Black on Both Sides."

Always in demand as an actor, Mos Def has four projects in various states of completion, including "The Brazilian Job," the sequel to 2003's "The Italian Job." He also makes a cameo alongside Elvis Costello in Will Ferrell's current box office smash "Talladega Nights: The Ballad of Ricky Bobby."
