    Twista been in the game almost 30 years as he dropped Runnin’ Off at da Mouth back in 1992. Earlier in the year, Twista released an EP called Lifetime which was the follow-up to the Summer ’96 mixtape from 2019. For me, Twista wasn’t on my radar until he appeared on Po’ Pimp with Do or Die back in 1996. Actually, Twista appeared on a few tracks on Do or Die’s classic Picture This project. With the buzz Twista received from appearing with Do or Die he dropped his breakout joint the following year. Adrenaline Rush dropped in June 1997 and it was an instant classic. Adrenaline Rush went platinum…

    Beanie Sigel The B. Coming Released 15 Years Ago Today

    Beanie Sigel was undoubtedly one of the hardest rappers to come in the game in the 2000s. Last month, Sigel celebrated the 20th anniversary of his hard-hitting debut album, The Truth. A little over a year later, Beanie Sigel dropped his follow-up, The Reason. Almost four years later, Beanie released his third album, The B. Coming. The B. Coming had its fair share of guest appearances and it made this another classic in Beanie Sigel’s discography. Snoop Dogg, Bun B, Jay-Z, Redman, Cam’Ron, Freeway, Twista and many more. The amount of growth shown on The B. Coming was impressive and Beanie became a better storyteller in the process. The Neptunes,…
