After serving up Prisoners of Conscious back in May, Talib Kweli is set to release his second album of the year. Gravitas, which you can see the artwork for above, has been announced with a release date of December 15th. Looks like we finally have an addition to that bare Christmas market! This album won’t be released under a label however, here is what Talib had to say about the project which will be directly sold to fans.

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. 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. Lets go for it!

Gravitas will include contributions from OhNo, Q-Tip, Lord Quest, Rich Kidd and more. Purchase your copy here.
