Twista Prep’s “Kamikaze” LP & Diamond Studded Car Rims

Twista recently wrapped

up shooting the video for his first single "Slow Jamz," from his long

awaited solo set, Kamikaze.

The video and song

features producer Kanye West and actor/comedian Jamie Foxx, both of whom make

appearances in the video.

"The video

is like a house party, how we used to do it," Twista told AllHipHop.com.

"We got Jamie Foxx in there playing records, me and Kanye got women around

and man it’s tight. It’s got a lot of raw shots."

The release of

the single and video marks Twista’s first solo album since running into contractual

problems with his old label, Creators Way Associated Labels.

The rapper had

to file bankruptcy in an attempt to solve his legal woes. With most of those

issues behind him, Twista is still negotiating a deal with Dame Dash’s Roc-A-Fella

Records.

"I am signed

to Atlantic, but they are working something out on the joint venture side with

Roc-A-Fella," Twista said. "I got a strong relationship with Dame,

so I am waiting to see what happens."

The relationship

with the Roc is apparent on Kamikaze. In addition to production from

Kanye West, the album features guest appearances from Freeway, The Young Gunz

and Memphis Bleek. Ceelo, Ludacris, Too Short and 8Ball also drop verses on

the album.

In addition to

the Kamikaze project, Twista is working on a new Speedknot Mobstaz project,

which is tentatively titled Nation Business.

Twista is branching

off from the music game as well and recently released his own Kamikaze rims

for cars.

"The Kamikaze

rims are out now," Twista continued. "They got diamond studs in them.

They are made by Omega. They are out now on the West Coast."

Kamikaze

features production by Red Spyder, Kanye West, Jazze Pha and Toxic. The album

is due in stores in January.
