It’s been a long time coming. Almost 20 years in the making. But hey, it’s better late than never. The long-awaited and always-anticipated Twista and Do or Die album will finally drop on May 19th, 2015. No, you’re eyes are not deceiving you — this is a real thing.
The project is a 6-song EP, featuring Twista, Belo Zero, Ak-47 and Nard on each and every song. No features. Well, hopefully save for Johnny P (no word on if he’ll appear.) No word on production from Traxster.
Look for their video for the official first single, “Aqua Fina,” to impact later today, and stay tuned for more details on Withdrawal dropping May 19th on GMG/Empire.
Update: Check out a special message from Twista regarding the EP
Fresh off her trip to Austin, TX for SXSW, Shawnna drops a brand new track titled “Money.” Now that’s good news, but are you ready for some better news? Well, her long-rumored collabo project with Twista, Bonnie & Clyde, is now a reality and is set to be released later this year. I know fans of both Shawnna and T have been clamoring for these two to drop that official project, and now it’s a reality. Rejoice!
You can bet all of your “Money” it’s going to be a winner — just based off this first leak alone –which is classic Chi-Town Shawnna. Cash out directly below, and stay tuned for more info on Bonnie & Clyde.
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.

We’ve heard nothing but great things about this powerful video for The Boy Illi’s “BlackMale” single which dropped earlier this year, featuring high profile cameos from Twista and Trae. And after some final touches and additions, the visual is finally ready for the world.
“BlackMale” takes the viewer from Chi-Town to H-Town, with a look at both cities and the cultures within them. Another job well done from Illi. Check it out above. Illi’s TheYearTape drops next Tuesday, December 9th.
