Noted as the fastest rapper alive & entering the Guinness Books of World Records, Twista has a new album hitting stores next month. This is said to be the last album he drops with the label he was signed with for over a decade. In a recent interview with XXL Magazine, he was asked about Jay-Z & Roc Nation. Peep it below...
Then, somewhat defending the critics who he says refer to Jay-Z as bogus, Twista states, “Everybody got a story about Jay about how bogus he is or whatever but me, I’m a little n-gga from Chicago who he walked up to in the club and told me he remembered me performing with him from way back in the day. Like ‘89 or something. He said ‘you deserve it cause you been going hard all these years.’ That’s my story.”
When asked about leaving his label Atlantic, home to Twista for over a decade since the 90’s, and if he had a chance to sign with Roc Nation, Twista reveals: “To a certain extent man, but the type of person I am, it won’t allow me to… Basically, all I can do is let motherf-ckers know that I’m free. I like to speak through my music.
It was a few opportunities that arose but at the time I was trying to get myself together from being at the end of the Atlantic thing so I had to regroup and find myself for a minute. Once I found myself, I mean it’s cool to be attached with certain people but I gotta be my own leader man. Like, I can be on your label and be under you and that’s cool, but really I gotta do my own thing.”
It's good to see that Twista and Jay are still cool & Twista should indeed sign with Roc Nation once the deal is complete, it'll shoot his career in the direction he wants! Roc Nation is gonna be BIG!
