EDITORS’ NOTES

Debuting in 1992 with Runnin' Off at da Mouth (under the name Tung Twista), the Guinness Book record-holder for World's Fastest Rapper broke through with his appearance on Do or Die's single "Po Pimp." Twista then put out two more albums and started the crew Speedknot Mobstaz and his own label Legit Ballin, but he was still mostly popular in his native Chicago and throughout the Midwest. Everything changed in 2004, when he dropped Kamikaze—it topped the charts and sold double-platinum, thanks to huge hits like "Slow Jamz" and "So Sexy." Twista's been busy since then, working with everybody from Raekwon and No ID to Lady Gaga and Diddy, but he's never quite matched the gigantic success of that album. This seven-song EP lives up to its title: no gimmicks, no big-name costars, just raw beats and tight rhymes galore. Twenty-plus years in the game, and Twista still sounds better than cats half his age. "Ferocious," "Beast," and "Swagga Like a Doughboy" are highlights.

DanK78,

This is a pretty nice ep after that perfect storm album that had so many slow songs.

About Twista

Chicago rapper Twista is known for his tongue-twisting chopper-style of rapping and was the one-time holder of the Guinness World Record for fastest rapping in 1992. Born Carl Terrell Mitchell, he made his recording debut on "Po Pimp," a platinum single by his fellow Windy City rappers Do or Die. Following "Po Pimp," Twista signed with Big Beat/Atlantic and released his debut, Adrenaline Rush, in the summer of 1997. Mobstability followed a year later, and in 1999 Twista returned with Legit Ballin'. In fall 2002, he hooked up with Ludacris, Jay-Z, Bone Thugs-N-Harmony, and others for the recording of his third album. Kamikaze came out at the beginning of 2004 and promptly hit the Billboard 200, riding the impetus of his number one hit single "Slow Jamz." In 2005, he returned with the album The Day After and the hit single "Girl Tonite" with Trey Songz. Two years later, Adrenaline Rush 2007 appeared. After forming his own label, Get Money Gang, in 2008, he released the album Category F5 in 2009. The following year brought The Perfect Storm, which featured guest appearances from both Chris Brown and Tia London. Then, in 2013, it was reported that Twista had begun sessions for a ninth studio album. Titled The Dark Horse, the record arrived in August 2014. The following year, Twista issued a pair of EPs: Livin Legend and Withdrawal, a collaboration with Do or Die. In 2017, he issued Crook County, which featured appearances by Blac Youngsta, Jeremih, and production by Zaytoven. ~ Stephen Thomas Erlewine
