(AllHipHop News) This past weekend, AllHipHop.com sat down with Chicago rapper Twista before his packed performance at the Key Club on Sunset Strip Blvd in Hollywood, California.
During the interview, the former Guinness Book of World Record’s fastest rapper explained the sound and type of songs that he’s been recording for his upcoming effort titled, The Dark Horse.
“I got the Reloaded mixtape – that’s what they call it – Reloaded with my man, DJ Don Cannon, and it’s got a bunch of stuff that I just been having brewing, that I’ve been ready to let out there. And I think its time to, because I’m gearing up for the album. The name of the album is The Dark Horse; that’s my baby right there, so make sure y’all are ready for that. But Reloaded is definitely what’s gonna hit them first, man,” Twista told AllHipHop.com in an exclusive interview.
While Twista was quiet about who will be featured on his project, he did acknowledge that he had taken note of the other Chicago rappers, like Chief Keef and King Louie. Twista tipped his hat to the younger generation of rappers, saying that Chicago’s rise was long overdue, and he even hinted at a possibility that one of the new Chicago up-and-coming rappers would be featured on his project.
“Well, a lot of the artists in Chicago, really everybody I pay attention to, everybody that you see coming up out of Chicago, from the Chief Keefs, on down to his whole camp, King Louie, my guys GMG, Mello Tha Guddamann, B-Hype, Showtime, everybody, man,” Twista explained. “I be paying attention to everybody, and I feel it’s long overdue, man. It’s just funny how the universe works. I just sit back as an OG, watch it all, have a ball, and smile.”
Twista also took the time to clear the air on a few rumors about a potential signing with Kanye West’s GOOD Music or Lil Wayne’s YMCMB label.
