Twista – 10 Rappers With Roots in Chicago
Although there are rappers out there who can boast about their numerous music awards or all the cash money, it's safe to say that Twista is one of the few who can boast holding a record in the Guinness Book of World Records. The Chicago rapper claimed the title when he was able to spit 598 syllables in 55 seconds in 1992.
However, there are more quick rhymes that have put this rapper on the map. He has released eight albums since 1992, and is currently working on releasing 'The Dark Horse' at some point this year.
While the longevity of his career is impressive enough, Twista became a household name in 2004 with the release of his fourth album 'Kamikaze' -- taking the top spot on the Billboard 200 chart. 'Slow Jamz,' featuring Kanye West and Jamie Foxx,' a single off that album, became the Windy City rapper's biggest hit to date.
