Chicago rap veteran Twista may be making a bid for why he should be considered G.O.O.D. Music-worthy by publicly dishing out an interest to join Kanye West’s heavyweight team.
Although nothing has been cemented yet, Twista said he is open to inking a deal with Yeezy.
“It’s very possible,” Twista recently told XXL about the likelihood of him signing to Yeezy’s label. “My main producer, Traxter, is working a lot with [Kanye] lately, so that’s a possibility.” The Chi-town MC, who has logged in over 20 years in the rap game, says rumors of him signing with Cash Money flooded the net last week. Although he didn’t directly address those rumors, Twista does think he’d fit in well with G.O.O.D. Music, which already includes the likes of Big Sean, Kid Cudi and Pusha T. “I don’t think [Kanye] really got nobody like me over there, so you need a person like me up in there,” he added, while flashing an ear-to-ear grin. “It’s an easy vision. Can we make a hit together? We tried once or twice…it worked.” (XXL Mag)
Twista previously hit up SOHH to dismantle speculation of a rift between him and West.
“The funny thing is people are smart enough to tell, ‘D*mn, [the media] may have ran with this one,’” Twista told SOHH, saying his “rejection” from G.O.O.D. Music was misreported. “That’s exactly what happened. Somebody took a statement that I said, like a general type of statement, going through my conversation, took a piece of it and highlighted it. First off, if Kanye did reject me, I wouldn’t go around telling everybody that. I’m just not one of those corny a** n*ggas going around talking about people. I’m too grown for that sh*t. That’s one, and then two, it never was a rejection. I think I mentioned it to him in the studio and he was telling me exactly what he’s been working on at the time and since then, he had moved to Hawaii. He had moved to Hawaii when we had that conversation. So, that was just an old conversation we had once that I didn’t really want to press on.” (SOHH)
Twista also said he would never allow himself to publicly call out another Chi-town rapper.
“I was actually trying to find a deal that fit me financially and freedom-wise,” Twista added. “And so I think I did that. But I wouldn’t rule out working with [Kanye] in the future…And that’s another thing, I ain’t ever crashing on another Chicago rapper. [The media] can get that one out from somewhere else. I ain’t saying sh*t about no Chicago rapper.” (SOHH)
Back in 2010, the fast-spitting rapper opened up about a past intention of wanting to join G.O.O.D. Music.
“I actually wanted to [sign] at one point, Twista recalls of Kanye’s 2008 Graduation era. “But I don’t know what time of vibe Kanye had with me at that time…I mentioned that I would be getting out of my [Atlantic Records] contract and wondered if he wanted to jump down. But I don’t know, I guess it wasn’t a good idea for him at the time. He should’ve done it. He would’ve had ‘Wetter’ [Laughs].” (VIBE)
