NEW Talib Kweli news as he launches Javotti Media — a company to support “tomorrow’s artists today,” as Kweli pays it forward for getting his start with some early, big-name co-signs. The first release under Javotti will be a mixtape called The Cathedral, hosted by Affion Crockett. 15 tracks from the likes of Curren$y, Big K.R.I.T., Joell Ortiz, Pharoahe Monch, K’Valentine, Cory Mo, NIKO IS, and the man himself.
Listen to “Everywhere I Go” featuring Curren$y, Big K.R.I.T. and Kendra Ross below.
Big K.R.I.T. keeps the good promo goin with the all-new video for the title track above. The moving visuals match the album cover’s aesthetic, and that’s a cool thing given the album cover. Matt Swinsky directs.

Cadillactica is out officially 11.11. (h/t NPR)
Is Big K.R.I.T. the new “King of the South”? One way we might be able to tell is if Cadillactica outsells T.I.’s new album, Paperwork. We’ll find out soon on 11.11, as in the meantime, here’s K.R.I.T.’s latest self-produced preview.
11.11. is now just two weeks away, which means the Cadillactica previews may come hot and heavy in between now and then. The late night one here is “Soul Food” with guest Raphael Saadiq. Great combo, amirite?
