Sambo my camos say otherwise

from Big KRIT – R.E.M. Lyrics on Rap Genius

Meaning

The Sambo is a minstrel character. He is essentially saying that he believed he would never be a minstrel character. Many people see popular rap as just a form of modern day minstrelsy, and KRIT, was sure he would never follow these mainstream trends, never be what was wrong with modern day rap. However despite these beliefs, he can’t help but think that his camos, need to fit in, and how he has carried himself may say otherwise. He fears that he will be/is the minstrel character he said he would never become.
