Carl Terrell Mitchell (born November 27, 1973), better known by his stage name Twista, (formerly known as Tung Twista) is an American rapper. He hails from Chicago, Illinois and 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 1997, after appearing on Do or Die‘s hit “Po Pimp” produced by The Legendary Traxster, Twista signed with Big Beat/Atlantic Records and debuted with that label with Adrenaline Rush and formed the group Speedknot Mobstaz in 1998. His 2004 album Kamikaze went to the top on the U.S. Billboard 200 album chart after the success of his Billboard Hot 100 single “Slow Jamz“.
Twista grew up in the K-Town area of the North Lawndale neighborhood of western Chicago, Illinois and began rapping when he was 12. In 1991, Mitchell released his first album called Runnin’ Off at da Mouth under the name Tung Twista. His second album, titled Resurrection, was set to be released in 1994, but due to problems with record labels 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.
In 1996 he 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 #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 #96.
In 1998 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: Legit Ballin’ in 1999 and Legit Ballin’ Vol. 2: Street Scriptures in 2001. The label later released Respect The Game, Vol. 3 in 2002 and Volume 4: Tha Truth in 2006. In 2000, Twista collaborated with Ruff Ryders and Drag-On on the Ruff Ryders: Ryde or Die Vol. 2 album, on the track “Twisted Heat“. In 2008, Twista launched a new record label called Get Money Gang Entertainment and the album Category F5 with the hit, “Wetter“. In 2009, Twista appeared on the single “Legendary” with fellow Chicago rappers AK47 of Do or Die and Saurus and Bones.
Twista released his eighth solo album entitled, The Perfect Storm on Nov 9, 2010. The first single from the album, “Make a Movie” produced by The Legendary Traxster, featuring Chris Brown, was released on August 24, 2010. Two buzz singles were released, “I Do” produced by Traxster and “Heat” produced by fellow Chicago producers NO I.D. and The Legendary Traxster. The album features artists such as Waka Flocka Flame, Raekwon, Tia London, Diddy, Ray J, Chief Keef and others. Production on the album is mainly by The Legendary Traxster along with Streetrunner, Twinz, Tight Mike and NO I.D.
In 2013 Twista is working on his 9th studio album entitled The Dark Horse. He also currently struck a deal with Kanye West music label GOOD Music. All of his albums will now be distributed by DefJam, marking his return to a major label since leaving Atlantic Records in 2007.
