Twista On Eminem Collaboration: "We Could Take It To A Level That A Lot Of People Couldn't"

Twista also details collaborators for his forthcoming "The Dark Horse" album.

Twista says that Tech N9ne and longtime producer The Legendary Traxster will appear on his forthcoming The Dark Horse album, but that he expects to only feature a few guests on the project.

“I’m going to keep the list short for the album,” the Chicago rapper says during an interview with VladTV.

Although Twista has collaborated with dozens of artists throughout his career, there are still several rappers with whom he’d like to work.

“I haven’t got in the studio with Jadakiss yet,” he says. "I haven’t got in with Talib Kweli. Me and him was talking about doing something before. It’s strange who you might hear me on a song with. So, it’s a lot of people out there that I’ve got on my wish list that I want to do songs with, just as a fan. 

"I like Kid Cudi’s music,” he continues. "I want to do something with him. I like Cee Lo Green. I like 2 Chainz. It’s a bunch of people, man. You know I like Eminem. We be bumpin’ Joey Bada$$, too. I gotta fuck with Joey Bada$$. I love his shit. Childish Gambio. It’s a bunch of people, man. My wish list could go on and on.”

As for a potential Eminem collaboration, Twista says he imagines it would be noteworthy.

“When you put the right creative minds together, you can get out something crazy,” he says. "So I always wonder what would happen if we was in the same studio working on a song ‘cause I know it would be something different because we could take it to a level that a lot of people couldn’t. So I just know it would be a fun-ass, dope-ass song.”

    "The Dark Horse" album... Okay, WAKE UP... is all I can say at this point. Katy Perry's song is... "Dark Horse," etc. Please... please read about the four horseman of the apocalypse... pestilence, famine and war. Not to mention the god complex with all these rappers now, Jay "HOVA," "Rap God," "YEEZUS." Anybody? Does anyone see the correlation here? I just wish people would see the truth in God's word, and the vanity in all of this music industry garbage. Christ's return is at the door(look at the signs...)and people are more excited for a new album, rather than the true word GOD.

      I reallllllllly doubt people naming their albums dark horse has anything to do with the 4 horsemen of the apocalypse. You're looking into this stuff way too much lmao.

    Em doesn't do collabos anymore unless there is something in it for him, and Em would get nothing out of a Twista collabo....... Twista new album be lucky if it sells 100K, and the only people who will care about this collabo are internet rap fans who stopped fucking with Em 10 years ago anyway...... He has nothing to gain from it. Not saying I wouldn't love to hear it but I'm a realist, Em is the only rapper left who can sell 2 million copies, even Drake, Macklemore and Kendrick right now, at the peak of their hype and careers, still gotta look up see his numbers..... You gonna have to be somebody big to get a collabo from him, unless your on his label or are a personal friend

      this dude @EW2003 who made that comment below is so funny.ha ha ha. I am as black as you but i got all Eminem albums. When would some of you haters here get it to your heads that em sells not because he is white but because his songs have the message that white folks and blacks like myself relate to. Now that is different from just saying he sold because he is white. What @EW2003 is trying to convey is that his color got him here. Well not really. its like saying because jay z is from NY thats why he sells. Excuse me if he was not making music the hood relates to would he sell? yes the black color does help jay but thats cos they can look at u and say yes this dude does feel my pain just as he claims in his music. Let me tell you why em really sells with the white crowd: his message is very strong. He is one of the few who came out expressing his anger with his parents on his music and he did it perfectly that people going through the same struggles could feel it. A lot of whitefolks and some blacks have issues like that. Also he talks of being bullied when most blacks talk of being gangstas. Listen to Brain damage, Legacy, Brainless. Also he is lyrically better than most rappers. No white rapper has ever attained that top 5 discussion like em. so u know why he sells because that is actually why i purchase any album he releases.

      @Ew2003 name any white rapper who has sucess like em? u cant stop disregarding his greatness bcus hes white, hes the only dominating white rapper ever. em ddnt just wake up and sell more than evry1 cus hes white. he happened to be a top tier talent who happened to be white. basicaly ems the white jordan of rap. a black jordan couldnt get the success but the white one with the same supereior skill can. point is hes still the most skilled but since hes white,commercial dominance followed. ur implying hes only donew hat hes done cus hes white. name me one white emcee with two diamond albums? you cant case closed. *rakim* - "Ems lyrics speak for themselves"

      ^^^ Your Missing the point bruh I wasn't talking about whose better because we could argue about that for 10 years and still never come to a conclusive answer. Taste in music is all in the ears of the listener, one person might think Kool G Rap is the best, another scarface, another Rakim, and they could all have 10,000 reasons as to why and the argument would never end I was just talking about status, you aint gonna be some dude that can barely get his albums carried in stores anymore who might push 100K copies of his new record if he's lucky, and expect to get a guest verse from the guy who sells the most records....... Don't even matter how dope you are Em gave Pharoah Monch props on that Rap God track, and even he has a snowballs chance in hell of getting a verse from him.....

    • EW2003

      Dude don't get me wrong b/c I think Em is very nice on the mic. I said I was a fan of them both but if you're really a fan of Em then you would know on Em song "White America" he admit that he sold that many records because he's white.. "Bad meets Evil" with Royce 5'9 went Gold just because of Eminem b/c let's be real, not too many people was checking for Royce like that IJS... Let's be real, the guy outsold everybody because he's white.. He has bars but I can't get over the fact that ppl throw his sells out there & gramys & use that as a justification like he's the best GTFOH. He appear to a more wider audience that's all I'm saying... Eminem can stand his own but it's a lot of underground artists that would eat some of these mainstream dudes up. Twista is more underground now and I'm not saying he's better but I honestly think he can stand up to par with Em on a track with him.

  • EW2003

    To be real, Twista has been saying that he wanted to collab with Eminem for awhile now.... I'm a big fan of them both but truth be told, Eminem know he would have to come with it on a track with Twista and I think he know that... The ni**a has bars for real....... I'm bout to fuk sh*t up, like Freddy after Jason, with a fascination for a laceration and congratulations for eradication because I know ain't no vaccination for decapitation for what these rappers facing..... I'm about to tear sh*t up, because I take hits with that purple like I am a Viking. Call me inner-revolution, I run with a mob of wolves like I am a Lycan That's a couple of bars from Twista on his song "Misunderstood" Eminem ain't ready for that ish hahahaha.... At least not at this point in his career. Maybe when he was younger but now I think Twista would eat him alive.

Say whatever you want bout eminem, but when it comes to the booth theres no knowone as scientificaly lyricaly advanced in technical rhyme then em. Those wack "tion" barz are weak and extremely overused. Twista can spit fast but he no where near the surgeon slim has become"em aint ready for that ish" smh really? Last point... em won an academy award for a cultural anthem which rhymed every single vowel. But he aint ready for the "Twister"!!!LMFAO!!

  • imho

    sorry twista. but Eminem doesn't do rap collabos no more.. y ou have to have a country beat, be a pop singer or have a weird retarded story with fucked up lyrics to get a collabo. this isn't 2003 where you can get a good Eminem verse..what r u thinking.

    • imho

      theres nothing wrong w his verses. but why cant Eminem make tracks without some gimmick or pop singer..if you listen to MMLP2 there is singing or some type of pop shit or a country beat on every single trck minus maybe 1 or 2. im tired of the gimmick Eminem to he needs to just rap like Eminem show.

      ^^ its a shame that peoples minds are so simple that since ems on a track with rihanna they instantly disregard the lyrical integrity of his verses. Simps will be simpletons, its what they do and im ashamed i even gave them a chance to seem intelligent. Ur answer prooved my point.

      I can tell you that they all suck and he's screaming in an annoying tone throughout. It's painful to listen to unless you're an autistic retard who grabs every word and is extremely logical to the point of nearly no human emotion and you have some kind of social phobia.
