Talib Kweli cuts middleman with new ‘Gravitas’ album

Talib Kweli Gravitas

Five albums deep and Talib Kweli is still giving back to his fans, however for his upcoming LP Gravitas he’s doing it on a whole different level.

The ‘no middleman’ approach sees his second album of 2013 supplied directly from the man himself in a search of a more valued, direct connection with his fans. Recorded, promoted and sold with no industry backing insight, Gravitas follows on from Kweli’s impressive May-released Prisoners of Conscious with such augmentation from the likes of OhNo, Q-Tip, Lord Quest and Rich Kidd, rallying the bold, innovative move into sure success.

“When you pre order my newest project, Gravitas, available Dec 15th, you will be buying it directly from me, no middleman, and I will now have a direct relationship with you,” says Talib. “Who needs this industry when we have each other. The technology exists for me to have this relationship with the fans, and vice versa. It is a grand experiment. Let’s go for it!”

Gravitas is set for a December 15th release but make sure you head over to KweliClub for the pre-order.
