URBNET recording artist DL Incognito says that his name means "delivering lyrics on the low, incognito." The truth is, however, a little different. Since "A Sample and a Drum Machine" his 2002 debut, DL has secured a place in Canada's hip-hop elite the old-fashioned way. He earned it. His sophomore bow, 2004's "Life’s a Collection of Experiences" found him nominated for a 2005 Juno Award in the Best Rap Recording Category.
Stokes calls on the childhood influences of hometown mainstays like Twista, Doe or Die, and Crucial Conflict to deliver his own version of the city's legendary pimp talk. "All of those artists amplified the strong pimp culture of Chicago in their songs, so it was important for me to incorporate that influence into Fearless Beauty," says Stokes. "This is my ode, so to speak, to Don Juan - his confidence, style, and way with words, it influenced an entire generation."
