Chicago’s premiere verbal chopper Twista called into 107.5 WGCI’s “The Morning Riot” earlier today to discuss a recent incident on Twitter. Last Friday, the Adrenaline Rush emcee supposedly Tweeted his two cents on Kanye West and Consequence’s current feud, questioning why a Chicago radio station would play Cons’s “The World is Watching 2,” a diss track at Mr. West (the post has since been removed). Twista explained that his intern had jumped the gun on Twitter and fired off the Tweet. He went on to say that he’ll always support 107.5 FM, especially since they’ve shown his music so much support over the years.
“That was a crazy situation [on Twitter]. What happened was my intern had basically heard everything that was going [with Kanye West and Consequence] and kind of sent a response out over Twitter letting everybody know how he felt, and it kind of came back on me like that,” he explained. “I just want everybody to know that I support all Chicago artists. I support definitely y’all [107.5 WGCI’s ‘The Morning Riot’] for doing what ya’ll do, y’all helped put me in the game, so definitely I support the station in Chicago and everybody that’s doing their thing and repping the Midwest to the fullest.”
Following his explanation, Twista gave his real impression of the highly-publicized beef between ‘Ye, Pusha T and the G.O.O.D. Music ex-patriot Consequence. Twista said that their feud is just another example of in-house situations regrettably playing out in public. He added that crews like G.O.O.D. Music should try to hash out their squabbles amongst themselves before making it public, lest they throw Hip Hop music into a negative light.
“It’s really an unfortunate situation,” he stated. “I wish those brothers could have really sat down and talked before that type of stuff goes public, ‘cus it’s really an in-house type of situation. You see it happen in sports all the time – in the locker, they say what happens stays in the locker room. I feel like that’s something they could have talked it out about, because it’s happened before. I’ve seen it happen with Remy Ma and Fat Joe…50 Cent. The crews got to start trying to keep they business like that in-house, and hash shit out so that everybody won’t think that we just all about getting to tour with each other and not being able to work our business out. There’s money out here for all of us. We shouldn’t have to go at each other here like that, especially when we’re all here together.”
