Twista’s long awaited documentary Mr. Immortality: The Life and Times Twista, will finally see release on December 7th, 2010 – just in time for the Holiday’s.

Vlad Yudin of The Vladar Company will tell a story of Twista’s upbringing in Chicago and the city’s impact on his development as an artist and his inspirations in life. The documentary will also explore the topics of current day Chicago and its population; outline the cultural importance, the history of its gun violence and its impact on the residents and especially kids.

The biopic which checks in at over 90 minutes, will have celebrity guest appearances from Ne-Yo, The Dream, Jeremih, Scott Storch and more — and it will outline Twista’s accomplishments, his importance and influence in Hip- Hop and music overall. It will examine his matchless signature flow patterns and analyze his famous rhymes that landed him in the Guinness Book of World Records in 1992 as the world’s fastest MC, spitting 598 syllables in one minute.

I’ve heard the film is super official and hopefully I’ll get a sneak peak in the near future.   Also, shouts to Brandon “N2ition” Riley who is listed on the credits as the “Director of Cinematography”.  Salute.

    This film is much needed. I just hope to hell that the clip from this that surfaced awhile ago is not indicative of the production value of this documentary. This will probably be the quality of any other ghetto production but I wish it looked like HBO’s Hard Knocks or just something decent so that non-Twista fans could enjoy it.

    I cant wait to see this. Twista is a legend. This director is 2 for 2 today.

    ^^^UR the lame you haven’t even seen the doc yet and you are already passing judgment. I’am definitely going to pick this up i’ve been listening the Twista since i was 12. He is my favorite rapper to this day so i would love to see a detailed account on how he became Twista.

  6. Draft Pick says:

    Well, looks like an uneven effort from Twista. The problem is that Twista has not established his own identity and instead jumps on the bandwagon of what’s hot, ofter after it’s hot. (See Adrenaline Rush 2007 where autotune was overused and a screwed song was throwaway). Twista is the greatest rapper to not establish himself. Imagine if he was doing concept albums at this point with cinematic songs using his versatile rhyming ability. He could tell intense stories and make ridiculously dramatic tracks. (See Adrenaline Rush, Is This The End, Ovadose, Legit Ballers). Instead, we have Ray-J on a steppin’ song, Yo Gotti on a drug song, and Waka Flocka on a bull**** song.

  7. I Agree with draft pick, mr westside & mike nice where’s the people who help you to get there No liffy stokes no mays no legit ballers no mobstaz lol mr treat the home team for Hollywood lmao
