Although they both had their fair share of weak material, I Always get hyped when I read that a new Talib Kweli or Mos Def Project in the works. Last year Kweli released "Prisoners of Consciousness", an album that I wasn't crazy about at first but as time went on it has become a definite grower though it's a different album - but with production work from Oh No, The RZA, and S1 you know that there were at least a bunch of heaters on there.
Now Talib is back in business with his ninth solo album (including the Reflection Eternal LP and "Liberation") which drops this Tueday and is called "Gravitas". The album hits retailers December 15 and features production and cameos by people including Dilla, Oh No, Khrysis, Statik Selektah, Rich Kidd, Jean Grae, Raekwon, Black Thought, RES, Rah Digga, and a few others. It could be intersting, though my mind isn't exactly blown by this first Jean Grae laced single.
