Default Greatest Rapper Alive First Round Match 16 - Twista vs Young Buck

Twista



Carl Terrell Mitchell (born on November 27, 1973 in Chicago, Illinois), better known by his stage name Twista, is an American hip-hop emcee who once held the title of fastest emcee in the world, according to the Guinness World Records in 1992, being able to spit 11.2 syllables per second. His 2004 album Kamikaze went to number-one on the U.S. Billboard 200 album chart after the success of his number-one Billboard Hot 100 single "Slow Jamz."

Twista grew up in K-Town area on the West Side of Chicago, where he started rapping at the age of 12. Before starting his professional career, however, he had several other jobs, including working at a factory, selling shoes, telemarketing, working at McDonald's, and as a barber.

Twista was one of the first artists to sign with Loud Records. In 1991, he released Runnin' Off at Da Mouth under the name of Tung Twista.

Despite this recognition, the album achieved little success. Twista dropped "Tung" off of his stage name for his second album, Resurrection, which was never released outside of some parts of Chicago. On the album he disses Treach of Naughty By Nature, who had stated that Twista's style was all show and no content. Twista's local notoriety grew in the underground mixtape circuit, as he was featured on several Chicago rap mixtapes, notably Chibangin, alongside unsigned artists like Psychodrama, Triple Darkness, and DA Smart.

In 1996, he teamed with fellow Chicago act Do or Die on the track "Po' Pimp" the track became a hit single, leading to a contract with Atlantic Records. He released Adrenaline Rush during 1997, where the album was a huge success with little mainstream help. Around this time, Do or Die and he began a bout of dis tracks against Bone Thugs-n-Harmony, which accused Chicago acts of stealing their fast-spitting style.

This was followed by Mobstability in 1998. Twista then formed his own Legit Ballin' label, which released two compilation albums: Legit Ballin' in 1999 and Legit Ballin' Vol. 2: Street Scriptures in 2001. The label later released Respect The Game, Vol. 3 in 2002 and Volume 4: Tha Truth in 2006. In 2000, Twista collaborated with Ruff Ryders and Drag-On on the Ruff Ryders: Ryde or Die Vol. 2 album, on the track "Twisted Heat."

Twista's reputation in hip-hop circles led to work with some other midwestern acts, such as Royce da 5'9" and Da Brat, and southern acts such as Timbaland and Ludacris, as well as an appearance on P. Diddy's albums No Way Out and Forever, and ties to Roc-A-Fella Records. His long awaited 2004 album, Kamikaze, was cerified platinum on the strength of two singles produced by Roc-A-Fella's Kanye West. The first single, "Slow Jamz" (featured on both Kamikaze and Kanye's debut College Dropout), featured Kanye West and Jamie Foxx.

After this success, Dame Dash made clear his desire to sign Twista to Roc-A-Fella. Although Atlantic would not release him from his contract, Dame tried to negotiate a joint venture and made Twista an honorary member of the Roc-A-Fella roster. One of summer 2004's biggest hits, "Jook Gal" by Elephant Man, featured Twista & The YoungBloodZ (on the Coolie riddim) on a remix. Twista's next album, The Day After, was not as commercially or critically successful and showed a notable lack of Kanye West production. He recently reunited with Kanye for the Mission Impossible III soundtrack, and released his next album, titled Adrenaline Rush 2007, in August 2007, which featured Tight Mike aka Cuzzo, Toxic, The Neptunes, Kanye West, and Jazze Pha. Guest appearances included the likes of Lil Wayne, R Kelly, and Bone Thugs-n-Harmony.

In 2006, He and his 17-year-old nephew Jesse Marvin Parks, a.k.a. Jmoney, an upcoming emcee out of Minnesota, released his debut single "Get Doe." Twista was also featured on the song "Hell No (Leave Home)" from Monica's new album, The Makings of Me.

Twista has his own column in the weekly Chicago Tribune publication RedEye, called "Twista's Turn", in which he shares his thoughts and answers readers' questions.During April 2008, Twista even toured Iraq to entertain the American troops.

Young Buck



David Darnell Brown (born March 15, 1981), better known by his stage name Young Buck, is an American rapper who is signed to Cashville Records. Young Buck is a former member of the New York City-based hip hop group G-Unit and G-Unit Records

Young Buck started rapping at the age of 12. It was not until the age of fourteen that he started recording in the studio. Although he was in the studio, recording, he was also well known on the streets because he used to deal drugs in his neighborhood.

The older drug dealers then gave him the nickname, "Young Buck", due to the fact that although he was dealing drugs at an early age he was also making money. Brian "Baby" Williams spotted Young Buck at the age of sixteen having a rap battle and took on the young rapper. It was not long before Buck left high school and was recording along with the rest of the Cash Money Crew. Juvenile and Young Buck left Cash Money at the same time. Young Buck joined UTP Records whilst Juvenile was trying to work out a deal with Suge Knight but Juvenile had legal problems and had to leave before they could finish the deal. Young Buck would later sign with G-Unit.

G-Unit was founded when childhood friends, Lloyd Banks, 50 Cent and Tony Yayo decided to make a group with each other. They met Young Buck when Cash Money Records artists came to New York and 50 Cent heard Young Buck rapping. After 50 Cent signed his contract with Aftermath Entertainment, Young Buck joined the group.

50 Cent gave Young Buck a feature on his commercially successful debut Get Rich or Die Tryin' album on the track "Blood Hound". After this, he appeared on G-Unit's debut album, Beg for Mercy, which went on to be certified 2x Platinum. Young Buck then released his debut album. On April 7, 2008 in a interview with Miss Jones on New York's Hot 97, 50 Cent stated that Young Buck was not a member of the group G-Unit but was still signed to G-Unit Records.

After being with G-Unit for a little over a year, Young Buck released his debut album, Straight Outta Cashville, a portmanteau reflecting the name of Young Buck's home city, Nashville, Tennessee. Young Buck recalls:

I got the name from N.W.A.’s Straight Outta Compton. “Straight Outta Cashville speaks for itself. It tells you my way of living up on to this day. I want the world to get a feel of me, showing them the way I am and the way I get down

Production was provided by Three 6 Mafia, Lil Jon, Kon Artis and others. The album also featured guest appearances from Stat Quo, Lil Flip, David Banner, Ludacris, 50 Cent, Lloyd Banks, Tony Yayo, Kon Artis amongst others.

The album received very little promotion after November because of the VIBE Awards incident after which Young Buck was arrested for assault. Straight Outta Cashville has been certified Platinum by the RIAAwith over 1.1 million sales in the U.S.and 2.3 million Worldwide.

Young Buck's second album, Buck the World was released worldwide on March 27, 2007. Its title is a play on the expression "Fuck the World".

Production was provided by Dr. Dre, Jazze Pha, J.U.S.T.I.C.E. League, Polow da Don, and Lil Jon amongst others whilst guest appearances included 50 Cent, Chester Bennington of Linkin Park, Young Jeezy, Bun B, Trick Daddy, and Lyfe Jennings, T.I., 8Ball & MJG.

Buck the World debuted at No. 3 on the Billboard 200 and No. 1 on the Top R&B/Hip-Hop Albums chart, with sales of 141,083 in the first week.

Adrenaline Rush is one of my favorite albums ever. I've been bumping it for almost 12 years. Mobstability is also a great album.


A few months ago I would've gave Buck a chance, but since he umm...Well

Same for me man. I used to appreciate Buck's music because he has an unusual delivery and speaks about what's really happening but recently has fallen off.

As for Twista. Shit speaks for itself. The fastest in the game, the last time I checked at least, and one of the most recognizable faces in the game.
