IDCF Talib Kweli - Layers, Values, Homeland and Red Stage

I Don't Camouflage was delighted to sit down with recording artist Talib Kweli at his home in BK for a very personal and exclusive interview. Talib Kweli went very deep as he shared how his values changed throughout his career, why he only gives the first layer of himself to people nowadays, key to longevity, why he thinks Jean Grae is a super hero, and many more. Check how he doesn't camouflage just from how he responds to each question.

How many MC's can you name that have came out of D.C. in the past 5 years? With the exception of Wale, the nation's capital has lacked in rap superstars poised for greatness.
In November of 2012, 20 year old rap artist Keim LeMarc released his debut project, an EP of 10 songs entitled Young & Wreckless, to a well received audience.

East Detroit rap prodigy 20 Twen starts the new year with his banging and blazing debut mixtape, "No Feelings", with stellar production by super producer 9th Wonder, Kajmir Royale (DMX, Bow Wow, De La Soul), and Johnny Juliano (Wiz Khalifa, T-Pain, Rick Ross), among others.

Spearheaded by 20 Twen's catchy and electrifying lead single, "Ice Cold", showcases why this 28 year old aspiring and much talented rapper, growing up next to J Dilla, and his debut project are a breath of fresh air in the oversaturated urban music market.

"The concept and the title of my freshman mixtape are both built around the idea of 'Don't take it personally'. There are a lot of people that I simply can't deal with on the same level that I once could. The mixtape is also my warning shot to them!" explained Detroit rapper 20 Twen.

Chock full of amazing beats and lyrics, 20 Twen's "No Feelings" is a 19-tracks deep mixtape that refreshes the spirits of Hip-Hop in a way rarely seen lately. Offering something for everyone and every mood, "No Feelings" is the perfect soundtrack to your life. From the beginning to the end, this is more than music!

Back in 2000 you reviewed an album called Esau: The Debut Album...The Farewell Tour.

You gave it a great review and inspired me to track it down. At the time I had just started writing lyrics and coming from New Zealand and with my own background no one had the slightest interest in what I had to say.

However after hearing Esau I reached out and shared my lyrics he responded with an in-depth email about not only what I had sent him but his thoughts on art and advice on how I should approach it.

This email meant a lot and I stuck to his advice about only making art that I could truly stand behind. Due to my own confidence issues I could not make the leap from writing to performing , I then traveled abroad for 5 years , wrote articles , short stories had a play produced and forgot about hip hop.

Until a year so ago when I knew that a part of me had never left it and I needed to go back it all guns blazing. I have now finished my debut EP.

Below is a verse from another song that is a good representation of what I am about:

"Wind moves dirt , hits shirt wiped off , hands revert clasped before a cross outside bells chime sound lost rain pelts whole city is awash overhead time stops women winds watch with a smart phone goggling world time clock ,. Multi lingual signals in the ether intermingle not a single second out of sight planet watched day and night by a cavalcade of satellites and we all move in flight round our sole source of life burning bright with its brethren infinity of the heavens alpha , omega in natures expression no further in this message any more Id be guessing , So I take a last look then return attention to the here, now , pen to paper as the beat sounds once the inks down cut it to a key in case I get to thinking life begins and ends with me."

This is the official, unofficial release of the shelved "Beats N Tetas" - if any of that makes any sense. Peace to the homey Mike Black (, produced the project in its entirety. This got that gritty 90's east coast vibe through out, a must-listen to hip hop heads all over! Why the title "Beats N Tittys" - definitely no disrespect to women, but it's the 2 things I love in life - music and women. Its kind of hard to sugarcoat that but its a raw album for the raw consciousness, no party concepts or molly/lean references included. Please be on the lookout as well next month, 3/15: LoadedPencilzEP
