Lil Twist is ready to show the world just how twisted he can be. Young Money's teen rapper is currently prepping the release of his debut Don't Get It Twisted, due in stores this summer and set to feature collaborations with Drake, Nicki Minaj, Lil Wayne, Sean Kingston, and Justin Bieber. Twist has already filmed the visuals for his first single "Love Affair" featuring his mentor Lil Wayne. The Dayo-directed video was shot on location in Miami, touting cameos from YMCMB honchos Mack Maine and Birdman. (Rap-Up)
In late January, Twist revealed the debut LP's title.
"I want the album to still be called Don't Get It Twisted," Twist says of the upcoming release. "It's coming in 2011 for sure. I have a few collaborations with Wayne. I have a record with Drake that we are working on. I have Nicki [Minaj] and my friend Khalil from Def Jam. And I have Justin Bieber on the album as well. I've been using a lot of in-house producers like Infamous and new producers that are coming up in the game. I'm just glad that it's finally happening." (VIBE)
The rapper inked his Young Money deal around March 2010.
Drake and Nicki Minaj aren't the only ones in Young Money creating industry buzz. Now teen rapper Lil Twist, who has long been associated with Young Money has officially signed his deal with rapper Lil Wayne's label Young Money Entertainment. Lil Twist has officially inked his contract with Universal/Young Money, with a rumored 1.3 million dollar signing bonus. Twist's debut album is set for release late this summer. His official single "Love Affair" is gaining lots of attention from the fans and he is shooting a video for that in the upcoming week. (New Lil Wayne)
