Talib Kweli takes us on the road with him in the new video "Rare Portraits." The back-to-basics visual is from the rapper's sixth solo album Gravitas, which was released directly to fans last year via Kweli's website.

He talked to Complex about the indie effort. "On Gravitas, my focus is on telling my story lyrically. The word gravitas is used to describe someone whose words and actions have importance and weight. I felt it was time to introduce some gravitas into hip-hop."
