This is a pretty ill flip of one of my favorite songs by Jill Scott.  Virginia emcee, TwentyDuce is preaching nothing but REAL RAP as he addresses those who falsify their characters in music, for the sake of street cred, and encourages black men and women to be who you are, accept it , love it, and respect it.

Rappin bout the sh*t they aint familiar with/

the streets don’t recognize you so recognize who you dealin with/

makin up a character to talk about how real you is/

that’s clearly a sign of your mental illnesses/

I consider this an important record and look forward to hearing more from TwentyDuce.  Delivering commendable bars and having received such a considerable co-sign from Ms. Scott, The Source gives major props for bona-fide hip-hop.

Stream his self-produced interruption of the Philly songstress’s Billboard chart topping single after the break!
