As it turns out, “Roses” was originally a Georgia Anne Muldrow (neosoul singer singed to Stones Throw) song for her upcoming album Umsindo, but after the guys from Frolab played it for Mos Def, he had to have it for himself. The song fits in perfectly on The Ecstatic, which also features Stones Throw producers Madlib and Oh No. The addition of Mos Def on the song is definitely an upgrade; this song has been stuck in my head since I first heard it.
