TWISTA

Carl Terrell Mitchell (born November 27, 1973 in Chicago, Illinois), better known by his stage name Twista and formerly Tung Twista, is an American rapper who once held the title of fastest emcee in the world, being able to pronounce 11.2 syllables per second. In 1992 he released his debut album, Runnin’ Off At Da Mouth, and has since released a further seven albums including 1994’s Resurrection, 1997’s Adrenaline Rush, 2004’s highly successful Kamikaze, 2005’s The Day After and 2007’s Adrenaline Rush 2007. His latest studio album, Category F5, was released in July of 2009.

 

Twista grew up in the K-Town area on the west side of Chicago. He started rapping at the age of 12. However, before starting his professional career, he worked at several other jobs including working at a factory, selling shoes, working at McDonald’s, working as a security guard, and even cutting hair.

 

Twista was one of the first artists to sign with Loud Records. In 1991, he released Runnin’ off at da Mouth under the name of Tung Twista. Due to his rapid-fire pace of delivery, he was listed in the Guinness Book of Records as the world’s fastest rapper. Despite this recognition, the album achieved little success. Tung Twista dropped the “Tung” off of his name in his second album Resurrection, which was never released outside of Chicago’s underground.

 

In 1996, he teamed with fellow Chicago act “Do or Die” on the track “Po’ Pimp” leading to a contract with Atlantic Records. He released Adrenaline Rush in 1997 followed by Mobstability in 1998. Twista then formed his own Legit Ballin’ label which has released two compilation albums Legit Ballin’ in 1999 and Legit Ballin’ Vol.
