Twista Biography

Carl Terrell Mitchell, better known by his stage name Twista, (formerly known as Tung Twista) is a rapper hailing from Chicago, Illinois. He is known for his Chopper style of rap and for once holding the title of fastest rapper in the world according to Guinness World Records in 1992, being able to pronounce 598 syllables in 55 seconds.

In 1992, Twista released his first album called Runnin' Off at da Mouth under the original name Tung Twista. His second album, titled Resurrection, was set to be released in 1994, but due to problems with his record label at the time Atlantic Records and marketing issues involving fellow Chicago rapper Common's album of the same name, the album was only released in the city of Chicago and thus got little national attention.

He then teamed with Chicago producer The Legendary Traxster and Cwal's Do or Die on the track "Po Pimp" produced by The Legendary Traxster, which became a hit single. This led to a Cwal's label deal with Atlantic Records, which released Adrenaline Rush in 1997. Twista had by then dropped the "Tung" from his stage name. Adrenaline Rush became Twista's first charting album, as it peaked at No. 77 on the Billboard Hot 200. The album also spawned a Billboard Hot 100 hit in "Get It Wet" produced by The Legendary Traxster, which peaked at No. 96.

Twista teamed with other Chicago area rappers to form the Speedknot Mobstaz. They released their first album, Mobstability produced entirely by The Legendary Traxster, in 1998. Twista then formed his own Legit Ballin' label, which released two compilation albums.

Beginning in 2002, Twista began recording his album Kamikaze with rappers like Kanye West and Ludacris. Kamikaze came out in 2004 and debuted at the top spot of the American Billboard 200 album chart. Its first single "Slow Jamz" (also featured on Kanye West's debut album The College Dropout), featured West and Jamie Foxx and became a No. 1 hit in the US. Other singles included "Overnight Celebrity" and "So Sexy." The album sold around two million copies.

Twista's album The Day After was released in 2005. It featured the hit singles "Girl Tonite" featuring Trey Songz, "Hit the Floor" featuring Pitbull and "So Lonely" featuring Mariah Carey.

Adrenaline Rush 2007 came out in 2007. Its singles were "Give it Up" featuring Pharrell and "Creep Fast" featuring T-Pain. In 2008, Twista launched a new record label called "Get Money Gang Entertainment" and the album Category F5 with the hit, "Wetter."

Twista released his eighth solo album entitled, The Perfect Storm, in 2010. The album features artists such as Waka Flocka Flame, Raekwon, Tia London, Diddy, Ray J, and others.

In 2013 Twista is working on his 9th studio album entitled The Dark Horse. His own label Get Money Gang Entertainment will be distributed by Capital Records. The first single is "Throwin My Money" ft. R. Kelly produced by Chris Millionaire. He is due to appear on the song "Jewels and Drugs" by Lady Gaga on the album ARTPOP.
