Rap veteran Twista continues to separate himself from constant G.O.O.D. Music record deal signing gossip, claiming while Kanye West is a close friend, he is open to sign with anyone if the situation is ideal.
Although he is not inked up G.O.O.D. Music as of now, Twista still said there could always be a possibility.
"I don't know what it's going to be [with G.O.O.D. Music]," Twista said in an interview. "[Blogs] takes it the way they want to take it -- I said that I'm open to sign with whomever as long as the situation's right -- it's all love. [Me and Ye are] both from Chi Town and he's been in the game doing his thing for a long time. I definitely don't look at it like [I won't sign under a younger artist]. Like I said, as long as the situation's right." (This Is 50)
Earlier this month, Twist wagged his fingers at media outlets claiming he had a deal with G.O.O.D. Music in the works.
"Yeah, my words got a little misconstrued when I did an interview, and I told the person it was possible because my main producer [The Legendary Traxter] works a lot with Kanye. ... I really just left it open on my end as a possibility, but as far as us having any talks on anything actually happening concrete, nothing has happened like that as of yet. But as far as that being a possible place for me to end up, as far as me feeling right, then I would say, yes. But as far as anything transpiring, nothing has happened like that yet." (All Hip Hop)
In April, Twista displayed his interest in hooking with with Ye on a business relationship.
"It's very possible," Twista recently told XXL about the likelihood of him signing to Yeezy's label. "My main producer, Traxter, is working a lot with [Kanye] lately, so that's a possibility." The Chi-town MC, who has logged in over 20 years in the rap game, says rumors of him signing with Cash Money flooded the net last week. Although he didn't directly address those rumors, Twista does think he'd fit in well with G.O.O.D. Music, which already includes the likes of Big Sean, Kid Cudi and Pusha T. "I don't think [Kanye] really got nobody like me over there, so you need a person like me up in there," he added, while flashing an ear-to-ear grin. "It's an easy vision. Can we make a hit together? We tried once or twice...it worked." (XXL Mag)
The rap veteran previously hit up SOHH to dismantle speculation of a rift between him and West.
"The funny thing is people are smart enough to tell, 'D*mn, [the media] may have ran with this one,'" Twista told SOHH, saying his "rejection" from G.O.O.D. Music was misreported. "That's exactly what happened. Somebody took a statement that I said, like a general type of statement, going through my conversation, took a piece of it and highlighted it. First off, if Kanye did reject me, I wouldn't go around telling everybody that. I'm just not one of those corny a** n*ggas going around talking about people. I'm too grown for that sh*t. That's one, and then two, it never was a rejection. I think I mentioned it to him in the studio and he was telling me exactly what he's been working on at the time and since then, he had moved to Hawaii. He had moved to Hawaii when we had that conversation. So, that was just an old conversation we had once that I didn't really want to press on." (SOHH)
