Real MCs can rip over anything...
Rapper Twista will return Oct. 4 with a new Atlantic album, "The Day After." The 14-track set is led by first single "Girl Tonite" featuring Trey Songz. The cut jumps 36-55 in its fourth week on Billboard's Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Songs chart and can be sampled on Twista's official Web site.
Although the track list is still taking shape, "The Day After" will also feature guest appearances from Jamie Foxx, the Neptunes' Pharrell Williams and Pitbull. Production was supplied by the Neptunes, Scott Storch, Timbaland, David Banner, Toxic and Cuzo.
Even though Twista has been making the same album for the last five years, this looks to be a heater. Twista + Timbo is always dope because he can keep up with those uptempto beats Tim drops when he's coked out.
I'm not even sure Twista is even on this, it doesn't sound like him. I know Skillz is one of the cats, but the other two I'm not sure about. Aaliyah made this hot, but this beat was made for rap. "Got y'all niggas crying like the baby in the background" was necessary. These are also some of the the dopest beat dropouts (Some LA Niggaz is up there) of all time.
Hit me up if you know who's spitting.
