Gravitas is the sixth solo studio album by American rapper Talib Kweli. The album was released in 2013, by Javotti Media.

 The album features guest appearances from Gary Clark Jr., Abby Dobson, Big K.R.I.T., Raekwon, The Underachievers, Black Thought, Rah Digga and Mike Posner among others. With production coming from Oh No, Khrysis, Statik Selektah, Rich Kidd and J Dilla among others.

“Breaking fresh ground with the latest addition to an already prolific catalog, Gravitas finds Talib Kweli simultaneously wearing the hats of businessman and creator. A proponent of the "new rules" campaign, he has breathed air into his career by independently cutting off outside forces seeking to profit off of his labor. Pushing the envelope conceptually, Kweli edges towards territory hardly explored by prominent emcees, as "Wormhole" tackles our culture's obsession with the supposed Illuminati. Its surprising effect is slightly offset by "State of Grace," with a contrived double time flow lamenting women losing their love for Rap, a worthwhile topic were it not for him covering this theme in prior rhymes. Another familiar angle, "Rare Portraits" honors the Brooklyn mainstay's longevity and resilience in a cinematic and introspective fashion, giving respect to John Forte, DJ Hi-Tek and Yasiin Bey amongst the primary names to play factors in his trajectory.” - HipHopDX
