After an extremely long hiatus, Twista returned to the game stronger than ever in the fall of 2003. Behind production from Kanye West, Twista released “Slow Jamz,” featuring Jamie Foxx and Kanye West. For many, this was a reintroduction to the lightning-fast emcee from Chicago.
Dame Dash was at the helm of Roc-A-Fella Records at the time and his interest was high in signing Twista to the label. However, this didn’t happen, despite Jay-Z also being interested in making the deal happen. Years went by and Twista did come with some hits and now he has a whole new album out.
Twista talked to “The Breakfast Club” this morning, when he stopped by Power 105.1 to talk to the crew. Charlamagne Tha God, Angela Yee, and DJ Envy spoke to him about his rap style and his 2003-2004 run with Jay-Z and Kanye West. He also discussed his new music and the future.
