Exclusive: Twista's LP Held Up


infringement lawsuits filed by Twista's old label Creator's

Way Associated Labels and Atlantic and bankruptcy proceedings

he is pursuing in Manhattan courts are stalling his plans

to wrap

up signing a solo album deal with Atlantic.

At least one

of the plaintiffs are seeking damages from Twista on grounds

that he

bootlegged their music through his current Chicago-based

label, Legit Ballin'

Records. His former

producer Legendary Traxster, is predicting that the

litigation in U.S. District Court could be resolved as soon

as early July.

The way judgments

are reportedly leaning against Twista, his ties to CWAL

might prove more difficult to sever as he finds himself

midway into production on his third album Kamikaze.
