Talib Kweli Gets Wrapped Up!
He speaks to our urban music blog…
The rapper claims that he doesn't feel as if he is what many people may see as a 'proper' rapper, because he wasn’t a thug or a gangster:
“I didn’t grow up poor. I’m not a thug or a gangster; I don’t put on any airs.
"Talib Kweli is my birth name, I don’t think I’m a dancer and I don't have a lot of rhythm.
"I don’t think I’m naturally musically inclined, I just have a great love for music and so I had to figure out how I was going to translate that into a career.”
