Talib Kweli is the trifecta. He’s intellectual without being stuffy and political without being preachy, and he’s a real MC. Kweli ostensibly tours in support of the mid-December release of Gravitas. Preview track “The Wormhole” references the Illuminati once too much for comfort, but it’s also a total banger. If 2013’s Prisoner of Consciousness can serve as any kind of qualitative oracle, Gravitas will encompass the full spectrum of hip-hop merits with few of its possible pitfalls. His winter tour hits Burque on Sunday, Dec. 1, at Sister (407 Central NW). The 21-and-over gig kicks off at 7pm, and presale tickets are $25 to $30. Coloradan hip-hop supergroup BullHead*ded, local freestyle crew Akword Actwrite and DJ Clout move the crowd, too. If you’re a Kweli superfan, make the meet-and-greet at Just Urban Smoke Shop (1319 San Mateo NE) from 5 to 6pm on Sunday.
