This is a 5-track project from a newcomer Rello Dreamer and veteran MC Twista. On the mic, Twista sounds great as ever. He is spitting bars at break-neck speed which is always impressive to hear. He actually shines the brightest on this project without a doubt. Rello Dreamer is someone I never heard of and I wish I hadn’t. If this is something new you are thinking of getting into, please don’t. We have enough rappers and we don’t need any new ones. Please stop rapping and work somewhere else. Please. The beats on here were pretty average. They did choose the sample “We Are The Champions” even though Twista already rhymed over that beat before. Kind of weird move, but Twista saves the day. All in all, this should have been a Twista project and Rello Dreamer should have been hanging up flyers on poles about it. If you love Twista, you will want to check out this project. But not for any other reason than that.
Twista releases a darker sounding album with his latest effort. This one is definitely all about guns as the name of album suggests. His bars are definitely spit at breakneck speed and will have you hitting the rewind button to figure out what he said. There are a few features on here from the likes of Do Or Die, YungBuk, Black Rambo, and Church Boy Scotty. The beats on here are definitely darker and sinister sounding. They also certainly aren’t up to the level that they were at when Twista was getting beats from Kanye West. This one might not be for everyone, and it’s not Twista’s best work, but it shows he is still out here grinding.
This is a very sloppy EP and I am glad it was only 5 tracks long. It made the time of torture a lot less than it could have been. Sure, Twista is one of the fastest rappers ever and he is amazing at it. But there are times where fast rapping doesn’t cut it if the music isn’t good or if you aren’t really saying anything. I have a lot of respect for Twista, but this project just flopped. His bars aren’t that good. The beats are terrible on every track. The song concepts aren’t very decent. These just don’t come off as good songs or good music. You can skip this joint completely.
Twista releases a mixtape in preparation for his next album and although I’m a big Twista fan, this one fell way short of the mark. Lyrically, he is still a beast and that is no question at all. He is basically the fastest spitting rapper ever and not only does he rap at breakneck speed, he is also really dope at doing it. His bars are complex and if you really listen, you can hear it. That should be appreciated. It is evident on this new project also. The problem with this one is more on the production side. I think the beats needed a lot of work. We definitely don’t get any songs like we did back in the late 90’s and early 2000’s. The absolute worst track on here has to be the annoying “Hey Na” in which they just repeat those 2 words over and over for 3 solid minutes. It is God awful. Whoever thought to create that track, let alone put it on a project, should be severely reprimanded. Although I got all the respect in the world for Twista, this one just isn’t doing it at all. I hope the studio album is a lot better.
This album was just okay. There were strong points and weak points to it. Lyrically Twista is pretty awesome. Obviously he is one of the fastest rappers out there if not the fastest. He definitely brings a crazy barrage of dope lyrics on this album. The beats are decent. There are some hard-hitting ones that are pretty drum heavy but then you have some beats that sound similar to these trap beats out here. It’s a shame when you have an OG like Twista that is trying to sell out to sound like the new sound of today. I hope that is not the case here. Overall, this is a decent release but I wouldn’t spend much time on this one. One listen is probably good enough and move on.
