Here is a real solid sign for Gravitas as Talib Kweli links with The Underachievers and Statik Selektah for "New Leaders" as all parties involved do their thing for a fast-paced lyrical track that hip hop heads will likely appreciate. I like Kweli varying the flow throughout his first verse and then the "new slaves" line naturally caught my ear and took it up a notch. Keep a close ear! Gravitas is out on Kweli's website this Sunday.
Statik Selekt's got the Extended Play dropping June 18th and here's an eclectic collab with Sean Price & Mac Miller. Price kills it — the raw hip hop beat, scratches, and sample on the hook are tailor made for his sound. I was skeptical when hearing all those elements prior to Mac's verse. It didn't seem like the natural fit for him but he spit some clever lines and delivered them well too.
