The latest release from Talib Kweli’s upcoming album ‘Gravitas’ (Dec 15) is ‘New Leaders’.  Kweli absolutely murders Statik Selektah’s triumphant, epic-sounding beat with his patented fast-flowing and complex style.  There are a few possible comments on Kanye West’s recent outbursts, which may well prove interesting!  It’s great to see Kweli making room for fellow Brooklynites, The Underachievers, who contribute two excellent verses to the track.  Talib Kweli’s last full length project, Prisoner Of Conscious was a sound record but was definitely overlooked by most, so here’s hoping that this new, more accessible sound will get him greater exposure with ‘Gravitas’.  Stream ‘New Leaders’ below via SoundCloud.
