Exclusive – Windy City Wordsmiths: Twista Reveals His Top Chi-Town Spitters


Chicago rapper Twista was one of the first rap artists from his hometown to cross over into the mainstream, almost simultaneously with superstar Kanye West, and a few years behind Common. While they are still at the top of their game, a new crop of Chicago artists have infiltrated the music scene and are making national waves themselves.

AllHipHop.com hung out with Twista and got him to run down his favorite rappers from the Windy City. The only problem is, there are so many bubbling artists in Chicago, that Twista couldn’t contain his list to just five artists.

From Chief Keef to Lupe Fiasco (yes, they’re both on his list), Twista name’s his Top Chi-Town Spitters:

  • Besides Lupe, Common he forgot the most lyrical mc from Chicago greater than him, who he started with. “V.A.K.I.L.L.”!!! Twista you are bugging big time. If you know hiphop you will know he started out with him. They had a fallout. He is an incredible mc I mean VA is beyond nice. I got that last album. Molemen, Capital D also. Infinito is from the Chi. He named horrible garbage rappers. He is just scared to be himself. Kind of lost respect for you Twista. DMX will at least admit who is garbage and who isn’t. You were not being honest. Chief Keef is straight sh*t and everyone else on that bs list besides 3 people Common, Lupe and Ye isn’t the best but yeah.

      Yooooo Vakill is nice… “My rap style is C-stection – I’m a cut above you pussies!” one of the coldest punchlines of all time

  • i’mreloaded!

    What about Psychodrama, Rhymefest, and to be honest……don’t laugh, the Brat is vicious on the microphone!

    • dy

      Agreed. The Brat is one of the most underrated women in hip hop. Psychodrama, man you just took me with them. Crucial Conflict too! LOL

      • dy

        The Crucial conflict line is a joke BTW.

      • hoeyuno

        Smokin on hay was a ok joint tho.

    • CaliTransplant

      Da Brat is hard! She murked that Chris Brown beat better than Busta in my opinion.

    Damn Twista…no Shawnna? Bump J? Buk? WTF? that’s a garbage ass list besides Com, Lupe, and Kanye…damn smh…the truth is Twista, Shawnna/Buk (tie), Com, Lupe, and Kanye are the best to come outta chi period

  • Alf Capone

    i think he just named ever chicago rapper he could think of off the top of his head

  • NoGoBoi

    bottom line, he ain’t say Mikkey Halsted so his list ain’t respected. Twista is respected for what he’s done but it’s like MJ puttin together a squad to win, u know how to win yourself, but your selections r shitty.

  • HipHopStalker

    Sounds good Twista now stop making slow jamz for the 13th time. He keeps trying to do it over and over. Just spit that shit that got you fans before Slow Jamz.
