Twista Envisions Kanye Collabo, Celebrates Bday at Free XXL Concert
Twista experienced some of the biggest mainstream success of his career when working with Kanye West earlier this decade. We recently chopped it up with the Chi-town spitter to find out what envisions would be the ideal G.O.O.D. Friday track for him reunite with 'Ye.
“Ideal, for me—it would be me, Ye, Kool G Rap and Rakim,” he told XXLMag.com.
As for his current relationship with his “Slow Jamz” collaborator, the mile-a-minute rapper was candid. “We don’t really talk a lot, but it’s not because we got a type of beef or anything like that," he admitted. "Even though we did what we did together, we kind of have our own lane and our own zone,” “I’m a big fan of everything he does and [I] do plan on getting in touch with him in the future.”
“I wanna get with him on an artistic level, so we can make things pop for the fans," he added. "On the other hand, I’ve always been comfortable doing my Twista thing.”
