[After recently releasing his “Livin’ Legend” EP, Chicago rap veteran Twista talks to SOHH about what sparked the project and shared his stance towards mixtapes in 2016.]

[I’m] just keeping fresh music out and the Livin’ Legend title speaks for itself.

Artist today work way more consistently, so you will be forgotten if you can’t keep up with them. It helps to be passionate about making music, but I have to keep making people know that I never die!

I was told a few years ago that an EP would be the way to go for many artists, now I’m seeing it happen. I like them better because you get to release music ideas faster.

Sometimes when you have to put more songs into artwork or an idea it hinders your creativity. I like to present ideas faster and hit them with five to seven songs and then move to the next, too much music out here!
