More about Twista:

Being a hip-hop star is one thing. Staying relevant? That’s something else. Twista is not only a hip hop star but perhaps most of all he’s proved himself to be a force to be reckoned with, no matter what the trend or region of the week. For more than a decade, over the course of a half dozen top ten, platinum selling cds and singles albums, Twista has stood his ground and answered to no one but his fans and his instincts. It’s this that propels Twista beyond being just a star, but a true career artist.On Reloaded, Twista’s latest mixtape release hosted by Don Cannon on his label Get Money Gang, the Chi-town champion gives his fans this mixtape for free exclusively on datpiff.com for thier dedication and support to his career in music. collaborations with Future, Ab-Soul, Juicy J, Shawnna, and Do or Die Reloaded is rugged, Hardcore, fired up, and street-certified.

Reloaded first single, “I Ain’t Wired Right”, is produced by The Legendary Traxster. Hardcord Hip Hop, “I Ain’t Wired Right” showcases Twista’s lyrical prowess that the rapper knows many fans are always eager to hear.But more than just the Midwest has embraced Twista over the years and the Chi-town O.G takes it to the westcoast AB-Soul on Dj Tight Mike produced “3rd Eye”.. “The track is just real dope; it’s got a street corner vibe with a higher learning effect on the mind and the lyrics that came into my head were real hip hop. Then I reached out to Ab- Soul because his style and what he talks about just fit and we just killed it.”

This many years deep into the game it would be easy enough for Twista to coast on rep and never push himself. But that’s not the mark of a career artist and that’s not the message Twista wants to send- not now, not ever. “If I wanna say anything,” adds Twista. “It’s that I have been consistently making albums and I can still make bangers because this is what I love. I love making music. I want people to look at my career as a whole. To see that the longevity is something that goes beyond hip-hop. I want to be looked at as the blueprint for n artist that can put it down for 20, 30 years.” Now comes the Dark Horse album….
