Talib Kweli debuted his sixth studio album Gravitas yesterday (December 15). If you prefer to go on a test drive before you buy, fans can stream the LP guilt free.
Clocking in at 11 tracks, this audible compilation features guest appearances and production from a list of noteworthy figures. Raekwon, Black Thought, Gary Clark Jr., The Underachievers, Rah Digga, and more contributed to the album. Khrysis, Oh No, Statik Selektah, Rich Kidd, and the late, great J. Dilla provided the music.
The Raekwon-assisted “Violations” is easily one of the better songs to release in recent weeks by our standards. If that’s any indication of how the rest of Kweli’s latest body of work sounds, you shouldn’t hesitate to press play below.
