GRAVITAS, Talib Kweli's sixth solo album, began to take shape in May 2013, during the weeks following the release of Kweli's fifth solo album, PRISONER OF CONSCIOUS. Loaded with guests, PRISONER OF CONSCIOUS was well received and reviewed, and gained Talib many new fans to add to his already large following. However, Kweli soon found himself wanting to record more personal material and really document his journey thru music. When singer Ryan Leslie, who created the platform that Kweli is using to sell GRAVITAS, approached him with the idea of selling direct to fans, songs that were just rough ideas began to fully form in Kweli's head. The new songs reflect a continued determination and drive in Talib Kweli, impressive because of the fact that Prisoner of Conscious was released just over six months ago. Considered one of the top tier lyricist of all time and name dropped in songs by everyone from Jay-Z to 2 Chainz, Talib Kweli has defied the odds and remained relevant while never compromising his art, quite a feat in today's music business. The respect he is given is evident when Raekwon from the Wu Tang Clan drops by to spit on "Violations."
