Editorial Reviews

Amazon.com

Seven years have passed since Twista's last solo joint (1997's hood classic, Adrenaline Rush), and that's about three career cycles' worth of evolution in the swiftly moving world of hip-hop. The Chicago speed rapper's managed to do well for himself in the interim, retaining a strong following among the thug-life set and accruing new listeners via judicious appearances on splashy commercial releases like Ludacris's Word of Mouf. The long-delayed Kamikaze plays to both sides of the fan base, presenting a fair mixture of old-school Twista style with enough formulaic stuff thrown in to keep the kids happy. On the "OG" end of things you get tracks like the R. Kelly-produced round-the-way ballad, "So Sexy," and "Pimp On," a player's anthem featuring 8 Ball, Too Short, and the legendary Don "Magic" Juan. But it's the trendier tunes like Kanye West's parody-within-a-parody, "Slow Jamz," and the hustler's anthem, "Higher" (featuring the aforementioned Luda), that make the most noise. --Rebecca Levine

3. Pimp On (10/10) CRAZY HOOK, CRAZY BEAT, CRAZY
4. Slow Jamz (9/10) VERY UNIQUE, BOTH VERSES TIGHT/ CHORUS TIGHT
5. Overnight Celebrity (9/10) Kanye's Krazy !!
6. Still Feels So Good (10/10) Lyrics UNTOUCHABLE ! HOT BEAT!
7. Drinks (8/10) WESTCOAST feelin beat, nice metophors.
8. BAdunkadunk (8/10) Down South Club vibe
9. One last time (6/10) Gangsta beat, Twista's rappin too slow.
10. So Sexy (10/10) ANOTHER HIT !!! R.Kelly and TWIST.
11. Higher (9/10) FASTEST TRACK it PUMPS ME UP! Best collabo is twista and ludacris. Go get Ludacris f/ Twista "Freaky Thangs".
12. Snoopin' (11/10) BEST TRACK!! EVERYTHINGS PERFECT !!
13. Like a 24 (6/10) Down South Club beat. Its aight.
14. Hope (7/10) Every album needs a deep track. Chorus hot.
15. Sunshine (7.5) I like da remix. Again, lyrics is tight.

NOWADAYS, ALBUMS GOT 2 or 3 really good tracks. But with TWISTA'S KAMIKAZE, you can just let it play from Track 1 to 16!
This is Adrenaline Rush's Follow up and Twista just keeps gettin better. Cant nobody come close to dat.

4.0 out of 5 stars Twista Brought it Home (4 stars) July 9, 2005
By MW
Format:Audio CD
It's been a long time comin' for Twista to finally break out into the limelight, but with an album of this caliber, I think it was better this way. Lyrically, Twista is in a league of his own, and has often outshined people on their own songs, which makes it pretty hard for people to hold it down together with Twista on his own. But luckily, most of the tracks showcase Twista on his own or with people just doin' the hooks, such as the radio-made "So Sexy" w/ R. Kelly. Twista pretty much kills every track he is on, including the opening two tracks "Get Me" and "Kill Us All". Of course everybody knows how good "Slow Jams" was w/ Kanye West and Jamie Foxx, but I think it should have ONLY been on Twista's cd. The Kanye West-produced "Overnight Celebrity" is a standout track too. The best song on here though, "One Last Time", is a track where Twista is not even rappin' in his normal fast pace, but rappin' at an average speed, in which he songs better than most people who can ONLY rap at a regular speed. Another highlite, which closes out the album is the stutter-step neat of "Art & Life" w/ Memphis Bleek, Freeway, and Young Chris. This song would have been better though if Young Chris was replaced w/ Beanie Sigal, and maybe replacin' Bleek w/ Jay-Z. But hey, you can't ask too much since this album gave us so much anyway. Here's to Twista comin' back even stronger, hopefully with the same marketing and publicity as before.

4.0 out of 5 stars Twista is back with his own CD and it's about time March 5, 2004
Format:Audio CD
After appearing on various Rocafella collaborations such as "Is That Your Chic" w/Memphis Bleek, Jay Z & Missy Elliott, "Champions" w/Kanye West, Beanie Sigel, and Cam'ron from the "Paid In Full" soundtrack and "Poppin' Tags" with Jay Z, Killer Mike and Big Boi from Outkast, Twista has finally released another CD. Although "Kamikaze" was released on Atlantic Records, it seems as if Twista really wants to be a Rocafella soldier. The first single from "Kamikaze" is the Kanye West produced "Slow Jamz" which features Twista, Kanye West and Jamie Foxx. If you haven't heard this song by now then you must not have access to a radio or basic cable television. This song has been heard constantly and for good reason. The concept makes sense and this is a good way for people who may not have known who Twista was to get introduced to him. "Get Me" gets the CD off to a good start and if you still disbelieve in his skills, Twista comes back strong on one of my favorite tracks on his CD in "Kill Us All". Toxic, who produces 7 songs on "Kamikaze", definitely has his best work on this song and Twista takes over a 4 minute lyrical ride on the track. On "Higher", Twista employs Ludacris on the track and the two artists have a memorable collaboration on the track. If you have any kind of system in your car or truck then you will enjoy this track. Although Twista starts off hard, he definitely tones things down for the ladies and for the clubs, almost even too much. The best of these songs being another Kanye West produced track in "Overnight Celebrity". Kanye samples the classic Lenny Williams slow jam, "'Cause I Love You", to perfection. This should definitely be the next single. This is my favorite song on this CD by far and is worth the price of the CD alone. Read more ›

4.0 out of 5 stars Did You Even Read Your Own Review Before You Saved It? August 30, 2004
Format:Audio CD
This last reviewer obviously lived under a rock for the last 15 years, is a white guy, or is just getting out of jail because his review is littered with comments that were WAY out of touch with hip hop.

1) "What happened to good rappers like 2pac and Notorious B.I.G., who were about the message and not the money?"

You obviously haven't heard Biggie's "Life After Death" album which overflows with the same content. And 2 Pac? What was the message on "All Eyes On Me"? Was the message that he hated the east coast? And don't even get me started on "Made Ni@@aZ" feat The Outlawz from the "Gang Related" soundtrack? And I quote "I'm a Bad Boy killa / Murder muthaf**kas daily / the feds trail me / so my alias' Makaveli"? And let's not forget that he's draped in diamonds and tossing money everywhere in the video. Now what was the message there, that he's a rich murderer? Please. Fill me in if I missed something. And remember, no matter what label Tupac was on when he made those records, the fact remains.....that Tupac DID make those records.

2) "What happened to the songs about violence, political issues and annoyance with the media? Well, Eminem, 50 Cent and Dr. Dre do that, so I'd choose them over idiots like Twista anyday."

"Violence, POLITICAL ISSUES, and annoyance with the media"? While 2 out of 3 isn't bad, name ONE song where 50 speaks on political issues. Eminem tried on "White America", but that hardly qualifies as "political". And Dr. Dre doesn't cover any of those topics...well, he used to cover violence. But his presence doesn't count behind the mic and anyone with an ear for good music knows this.
