Who Am I ?
1. Who am I?
I’m 20 Twen, an East Detroit hip hop artist and owner of No Feeling Music Group.
2. What do you do and what project are you currently working on?
I write and perform hip hop music. I’m working on my fourth and fifth mixtapes of the year: 10 Minutes of Death Part 3 and A Clockwork Black. The premise of my 10 Minutes of Death mixtape series is me trying to be as ill as I can be in the span of 10 minutes–no hooks. I’m currently gearing up to release Part 2. I’ve also already released the first single from A Clockwork Black: “Rollin,” a laid back track that’s great party music.
3. Where are you from and where are you going?
I’m from the east side of Detroit, 7 mile and Van Dyke to be exact. Where I’m going is to compete with the very best in my genre.
4. Who is your biggest hero?
My dad is my biggest hero. Having someone support my dreams and serve as a role model has helped me become the man that I am today.
5. What book is your bible?
My favorite books are The Secret History of The World by Mark Booth and A Clockwork Orange by Anthony Burgess.
6. What are some things you love? And some things you hate?
I love music of all types, not just hip hop. I think to be a great artist you can’t limit yourself by just listening to your genre. I also love sports because I love some healthy competition. I hate liars and nothing else. Hate is something I try to keep out of my heart, but liars really frustrate me.
7. What is your raison d’ Être?
My raison d’etre is to make some kind of big impact in hip hop. Music is what I was born to do no doubt.
8. What is your favorite color?
9. What is your favorite comic super hero?
Marvel Comics Deadpool is my favorite. I’ve always thought the healing factor that enables him to regenerate tissue was awesome.
10. What is your favorite NYC spot?
I haven’t had the chance to party in NYC to pick a favorite hot spot just yet, but I got some people in Manhattan that want to show me what’s dope out there this winter! Get back at me about that one.
11. What turns you on?
A woman with a fierce sense of loyalty is always a turn on, and of course, a nice body on a woman with a pretty face doesn’t hurt.
12. What would the last question of this questionnaire be if you were the one asking?
If I were writing this article I would wrap it up with: What separates your music from every other rapper?
