A pint-sized emcee who puts the “Young” in Young Money and an industry vet who’s old enough to be his dad, Lil Twist and Busta Rhymes make an odd couple, but the new labelmates have at least one thing in common: they’re “Turn’t Up in this b*tch.” On Twist’s latest single, the helium-voiced rap wunderkind comes together with the Northeastern mainstay to do a little cross-generational stunting. Over Young Chu‘s icy synth-percussion boardwork, the Southern youngster comes with bars as energetically flowed as they are swag-laden: “I stay turnt up like a stove with a tea-kettle / Swag sick like a kid in the hospital / All that and your doe still a lot little / Twizzy and Bus-A-Bus spittin hot riddles.” Busta continues in a similarly braggadocious vein on his middle 16, shaking his head at those who doubt Twist’s skills and warning the haters, “Don’t front or I’ll sic the little n*gga on you.” Can you f*ck with this flossed-out collaboration? If so, keep it locked; both Twist’s untitled debut album and Rhymes ’ E.L.E. (Extinction Level Event) 2: End of the World have yet to receive a drop date, but we’ll keep you supplied with the latest news and tunes.
