"I'm talking (about) Miles (Davis) or Prince, (for example)." This is how you'd understand the phrase. He's giving two famous and respected black musicians as examples of "a cool black man."

The words MILES and PRINCE are refering to people, who I believe are these two: ***Miles Dewey Davis III (May 26, 1926 – September 28, 1991) was an American jazz musician, trumpeter, bandleader, and composer. Widely considered one of the most influential musicians of the 20th century. ***Prince (born Prince Rogers Nelson; June 7, 1958) is an American singer, songwriter, musician, and actor. He has produced ten platinum albums and thirty Top 40 singles during his career. "I'm talking Miles or Prince." if said differently could be something like "I mean, I would have been just like Miles or Prince."
