One of the many highlights from Ty Dolla $ign’s super solid Beach House EP is Twista’s show-stealing verse on the second half of “Work” , which also features Casey Veggies. With DJ Candlestick and OG Ron C putting their own touch on Ty Dolla’s EP, we now have Twista’s contribution in ‘chopped not slopped’ form.
If you haven’t heard Ty Dolla $ign’s Beach House EP, do yourself a favor and grab it from iTunes now. Not now, but right now. Check out the Chopstars’ version of Ty and Twista’s “Work” below.

Here we have the fourth visual from Twista’s recently released EP, Back To The Basics. The clip co-stars the ravishing, Deelishis. Watch and fall in love.
This is one of the best episodes of MTV’s Rap Fix that I’ve seen in a while. Twista talks about his new EP, Back To The Basics, and his long career in the music business. He also talks about the red hot Chicago rap scene, and talks how it differs from the College Dropout era and the “Po Pimp” era. He also talks about how he came together with Chance to do “Cocoa Butter Kisses.” And a fun fact: these two met at the Fake Shore Drive/adidas event at Villa.
TI’s segment is very dope, too. He talks a lot about the music biz as well. A must watch for budding rappers and business minds. Good game, on the free, from two legends.

With Lee England Jr. on the violin and Traxster on the beat, Twista gets ferocious in this new one from his Back To Basics EP. The EP just dropped today, and it’s nothing but pure fury from T. He really gets back to the essence on the project. Grab it here – it’s ferocious.
Twista’s new EP, Back To Basics, hits iTunes and other fine online retailers tomorrow, and in promotion of the project, last night he linked with DJ Victoriouz and the lovely Deelishis to film the video for “Want My Love.” The track appears as the last song on the EP, and you’ll be able to hear it in full tomorrow.
Yesterday, Deelishis caught a plane to Chicago to link with Twista and sexy up his new clip. Check out some behind the scenes pics above and below. Look for the full video in the near future.

Twista picks up where he left off in his previous video and continues the lyrical onslaught in the latest visual offering from his Back To The Basics EP. T’s definitely 2-0 with this joint.
Check out the video above and be sure to cop Back To The Basics when it hit’s iTunes on December 10th.
Well, this is interesting. Per Attitude, who just cut loose this Timbaland Thursdays track, Twista was out in LA a while back working on *possibly* cutting a deal with Timbaland, where they linked and recorded 4-5 heaters. And from the story below, it was One Take T, as he did this in one shot and didn’t punch out once. No year is specified, so if you have any idea please drop in the comments section.
“Well we recorded the song at Larrabee studios in LA . I think at the Time Tim and Twista were trying to do a situation together and he came out to LA while I was there we actually did like 4 or 5 songs all produced by Timbo. We were staying at the same hotel to so we got a chance to smoke a lot of loud hang out and and get work done. Me and Tim actually had already had our verses to the song when twists heard It he rolled up one and wrote one the hardest verses ever and he didn’t punch one line. He did it in 1 take.” – Attitude

With Twista’s Back To Basics EP only a week away (12/10), the content is beginning to roll out, and you can count on something to drop everyday until the official release. Today, T kicks things off with his video for “Intro Freestyle.” Filmed at Chicago’s infamous Terror Dome, a staple for rap battles and gatherings in the late 80s/early 90s (and most famously featured in EC Illa’s “On Ill” video), Twista truly gets back to his hip-hop roots on this one. Stripping away the gloss and floss, Twista proves that he’s an MC first, and that’s what this video and project set out to achieve.

Coming straight out of Denmark is DJ Hones, who went westward to recruit two of our most legendary domestic rappers, Twista and Fat Joe, for a new video called “Christian Bale.” Joe Crack was still inside when this video was filmed, but Twista made it across the pond to record his cameo. Check out the foreign exchange in the video above.
Twista’s new seven song EP is set to drop at all fine digital retailers on December 10th. The project, which was largely produced by The Legendary Traxster, features Twista getting back to the nitty gritty, and the core of being a dope MC. Dra Day and DJ Victoriouz are the only two features. Hit the jump for a quick preview.
