Hear Talib Kweli enter 'The Wormhole' on lead track from forthcoming <em>Gravitas</em> LP

The Brooklyn rapper teases his sixth solo album.

With his forthcoming LP Gravitas slated for release next month, Talib Kweli has unveiled lead track ‘The Wormhole’. Produced by Stones Throw stalwart Oh No, the jazz-inflected jam sees Kweli unpicking hip hop’s obsession with Illuminati.

Due out on December 15, Kweli’s second album this year will also feature production work from Q-Tip, Quest and Rich Kidd. By self-releasing the record, he also hopes to bypass record industry middlemen, as he explained on his website: “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!”

Kweli made an appearance on Interpol member Paul Banks’ unexpected hip hop mixtape earlier this year, while in May he released the Prisoner of Conscious LP.
