Music News: Chicago's finest - Twista

This past weekend, the BET HipHop awards took place in Atlanta, GA. During some down time in the Loews Hotel lobby, I chatted with one of my favorite rappers of all-time and fellow Chicago native --- Twista. He shared that he has his own record label, "Get Money Gang  Entertainment" (GMG), also home to the Speedknot Mobstaz and Shawnna. Twista said he's also working on some new material for an album that could be released as early as late this year.

Twista's impact on music and specifically the HipHop world have been felt for many years. He released his debut album, Runnin' Off at Da Mouth, almost 20 years ago. He has consistenly recorded and released solo albums, collaboration albums and mixtapes.  Most recently he released a mixtape featuring his GMG crew called, We Workin. The mixtape has 23 tracks and continues to prove why Twista is legendary. He also has a solo album called, The Perfect Storm ( to keep fans coming back for more.
