Twsita and Traxster have done it again. 22 years in the game and they’re still putting numbers on the board. Some of you aren’t even 22 years old yet, so try to wrap your heads around this level of longevity. Twista and Traxster (with assistance from Tia London) can add yet another hit to their resume, as their recently released “It’s Yours” is heating up the airwaves and was this week’s most added song on urban radio. 34 cities have added the track into rotation, so congrats are in order to all parties involved.
Check out the monitor report and city add list below. If you don’t have the track yet, I suggest you buy it here.

Do Or Die’s Belo Zero revisits his I Plead The Fifth LP from 2013 and delivers an official video for ” Cum & Go”, featuring Twista and singer John Blu. The album version of this track features a verse from Westside veteran Cold Hard, but the official single/video version only features Twista and Blu.
Check out the video above and be sure to grab I Plead The Fifth on iTunes.
The pop charts can be a weird place. Late last year, you probably remember reading about Kanye West’s awesome “Gone” landing on the Billboard charts eight years after its release thanks to a goofy viral video. Well, it appears another one of Chicago’s top artists is having the same fate, as Twista’s 2004 single “Hope” (featuring Faith Evans and sometimes Cee-Lo) has landed on the UK’s Top 40 chart 10 years after its initial release.
How did this happen, you ask? Well, it came to fruition thanks to the song appearing on the insanely popular ‘Britain’s Got Talent‘ television program. Last week, two young kids performed the song in front of millions of Brits, and it was so well received that it created a frenzy of people buying and playing the song. It’s last appearance on the charts was in 2004 when it peaked on the U.S. Billboard Hot 100 at #31.
US hip-hop star Twista is in with a shot at returning to the Top 40 hit this week with Hope FT Faith Evans, new at Number 36 following its appearance on Britain’s Got Talent.
Hit the jump to check out the kids performing “Hope” on Britain’s Got Talent. Homeboy kinda nails the Twista verses. Let’s hope “Hope” continues to creep up the charts and enjoys a long and fruitful second life.

Twista. Traxster. Tia. The triumphant trio. They’ve done it before, and they’ve done it again, and today they realign for Twista’s official first single from his forthcoming album, The Dark Horse.

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.
