On his new album Gravitas, Kweli manages to find the middle-ground between hip-hop’s more thoughtful content and it’s more trivial — and he sounds a lot less contrived than he did when he attempted to pull off the same trick on 2013s overly-calculated Prisoner of Conscious. On Gravitas Kweli seems much more comfortable dabbling in different aesthetics — and that results in the most complete album he’s released in a decade.
