TWISTA

KIM

You can call him the fastest MC in hip-hop history, the man with the flawless flow or simply the Chi-Town legend. Twista's earned all his accolades and can breathe one huge sigh of relief with 2004 behind him. After year’s of building one of rap’s most loyal street following and accumulating immeasurable respect among his peers in the music industry, Twista finally was rewarded with the mainstream recognition and over two million sales of his seventh album-the classic-Kamikaze.

With the weight of the world off his shoulders, Twista didn’t exactly take the time to breathe easy and kick back and relax. He focused on capitalizing off of his momentum and headed back in the lab for his next LP, The Day After.

 With legendary status solidified and his feet firmly planted at the top of the game, Twista felt so comfortable with his song making acumen, he experimented like never before with different flows and song making approaches on The Day After.

With what he describes as his mojo turned up full blast, Twista has completed yet another magnum opuses that eclipsed his previous masterpieces sonically, lyrically and stylistically. The Windy City word blazer worked with the music’s elite such as Academy Award winner Jamie Foxx, Snoopp Dogg, Mariah Carey, the Neptunes, Trey Songz, Kanye West, Scott Storch and his crew, the Speedknot Mobstaz, among others.

Twista can definitely speak from experience. Growing up on the Westside of Chicago, better known as "K-Town," Twista has been rapping since age 12, and like many kids from his enviornment he had to overcome more in his adolescent formative years than most people endure their entire lives. He felt the allure of drug pushing, the gangs, pimping, but ultimately it was his true love of music that would win out.

Like his hometown contemporaries, Twista gained his first fan following in the streets by dissecting Windy City hood legends with a style no one has very been able to define of successful copy.

At age 18 he signed his first record deal under the moniker Tung Twista and released his first LP in 1991, setting a precedent for clarity and speed in a rap delivery. It wasn't until six years later with the release of his Atlantic/ Big Beat debut Adrenaline Rush and its subsequent follow up, Mobstability with the Speedknot Mobstaz, that one of Chi-Town's finest established himself as a legend in the making with a penchant for making classic hits.

Seemingly, Twista seemed destined to have his name cemented with the rising greats of the era like Jay-Z, DMX and Big Pun, however record label strife led Twista to take his talent back to its origins-the streets, where he would release three independent albums and sell over 150,000 copies with his only push being the word of mouth from his loyalists.

In the months since Twista has been working on The Day After, he’s kept one of the highest profiles out of any rapper. He’s made guest appearances on blockbuster number one LPs such as Mariah Carey’s The Emancipation of Mimi and R. Kelly’s TP3 Reloaded as well as release the heart touching remix of “Hope” on the “Coach Carter” soundtrack.
In 2006, Twista and the Mobstaz are dropping their next LP, Mobsta Elite.

But that's next year. Let's not lose focus of the event that is upon us. With the release of The Day After, Twista is elevating his steadfast grind as a rapper and planting another building
block on his already strong foundation of music.
