Nine years ago, Twista gained international fame, after ten years of representing the Chicago hip hop scene. At the time, Twista was working closely with Kanye West, who was transforming from in-house Roc-A-Fella producer to rap star. Working with Kanye West led to Twista associating with Roc-A-Fella Records’ roster of artists and Jay-Z wanted to sign him.
Despite working closely with Roc-A-Fella Records, Twista did not sign with the label. Instead, he continued to release hits with Atlantic Records, before departing in 2007. Twista’s career fell off a bit, until the release of his Chris Brown-assisted single, “Make a Movie.” In the time since then, Twista has been releasing music and keeping his name out there.
With his career beginning to resemble his career during this time in 2003, Twista is rumored to be joining another high-profile record label. There have been rumors of Twista joining G.O.O.D. Music and XXL recently caught up with him for details. Currently without a label, Twista said a move over to G.O.O.D. is very possible, as the label was once home to another Chicago legend, Common.
