Twista & Do Or Die To Release EP Together

| February 2, 2015 | 1 Comment


After almost 20 years of recording music together, Twista and Do or Die finally give their fans exactly what they’ve always wanted: a joint EP together. From “Po Pimp,” to “Paper Chase,” to “Still Po Pimpin,” to “Do You,” these two factions have created a slew of impeccable and memorable tunes, so it’s only right they’d connected for a project together. Hey, it’s 2015, so anything can happen.

In a recent interview with industry vet Steve Lobel, Twista disclosed:

“Well right now I’m working on a Do Or Die project,” Twista says. “People don’t know that but we got an EP that we finishing up. One last week we finishing it up. [It’s] not gonna be your typical ‘Twista and Do Or Die,’ project like, you gon’ hear it and we definitely gonna put you right back in that car when you were listening to ‘Po Pimp’ and certain songs. People make things for different reasons but we definitely wanted to recapture ourselves and give that back to the fans.”

Wow. Hit the jump to check out the full interview, where he also talks about the current industry in Chicago and shares his thoughts on Vic Mensa, Chance The Rapper, Lil Durk, Chief Keef and more.

In case you’ve been under a rock for the past 24 hours, the first annual AAHH! Fest took place yesterday at Union Park and it was nothing short of amazing. The festival, which an estimated 9,000 people attended, kicked off with a performance from Lil Herb which was followed by sets from SZA, Jay Electronica, MC Lyte, De La Soul and Jennifer Hudson. Shortly after J Hud’s performance, Dave Chappelle hit the stage and introduced Lupe Fiasco. Following Lu’s performance, the man behind the festival, Common took the stage for his set which included a mini-set from Twista and surprise performance from Kanye West.

Yeah, go ahead and kick yourself if you missed out. Check out some dope shots from the festival and make sure you’re in attendance next year.
