Raw and Uncut Hip Hop: DJ Twista – Grind Season / Unsigned Talent (252)

DSC_8738

I like for the people I interview to be in their most comfortable state, that way they are relaxed and ready to converse. I walked in and sat down. I was offered some of the best Kool-Aid ever! Bursting with flavor, I was ready to begin. We began by discussing daily routines to break the ice. DJ Twista likes to smoke every day. I asked his preference. “High grade, no mid! Don’t disrespect me ..hide it!” Clearly he is a supporter of marijuana.

Chryshon Fields was born on March 22, 1986 in Summit, New Jersey near Patterson. He relocated to Rocky Mount, North Carolina in 1999 after it got real rough around the area he was living in. Chryshon grew up on “The Hill” and the Holly Street area. He is a disc jockey that goes by the name DJ Twista. The name Twista comes from the song Slow Jamz. Slow Jamz was the lead single from Twista’s Kamikaze album in 2003 and was also on Kanye West’s debut album The College Drop Out. That was his theme song! He was around 18 when he first started out on the scene. His favorite mixtape that actually made him want to DJ is “60 Mins of Funk Flex.” When I asked him who his favorite artists are he named JayZ, Tupac, Biggie Smalls, Memphis Bleek, Max B, and Young Thug. For a personal preference he likes almost all music. Basically anything with a bop. Twista has been an on air personality for Soul 92Jams (92.1FM). He now does drops for mixtapes, promotes DJ mixtapes, A&R, and is the CEO of RunEmUp Entertainment.

Dj Twista has a strong passion for spinning records and music. His father was a professional dancer who owned a strip club. While his father promoted the club with the girls who worked for him, Twista was busy making tapes to play in the club to keep the party going. Being in the street and his father being involved with the club made him want to DJ more.

 “The streets made me a DJ. Getting out of the street was the goal.”

Twista’s mood is very cool, calm and collected. He likes money, females, and people who are funny. When I asked him to describe himself he said he is a very down to earth, kind hearted, generous person who is usually feeling good and smiling. “I just stay in my zone.” Being a team player is key and he wants to be with people who are for the team. DJ Twista also expressed that he is a genuine person and the things that he does are done with meaning. He is big on respect and feels it should be a two way street. You get what you give. “What God made you to be is what you should be on this earth!”

 There is a project in the works! Independent Savior drops in March 2014. He will feature independent artists on the mixtape. The mixtape will promote those who have a strong work ethic, consistency, grind, love, and support. When I asked Twista about how he felt about the music in the city of Rocky Mount he said “The music speaks for itself”. I felt that was a very good answer.

We reflected on events recently in the city. He said he would like to see a change in Rocky Mount, and more positivity. “Everybody wants to follow, but just be yourself. Be strong at home and don’t be weak. It starts at home!” We also discussed life and I cared to know where he wants to be in ten years. He pretty much said he would like to be remarried, owning a restaurant, a cook, and still pushing RunEmUp Ent.

As far as achievements, DJ Twista’s biggest show was in Canada. He was a DJ for Yung Jock around 2004. For him going to Canada was big because he got the opportunity to do what he loves just off somebody believing in his craft. He keeps busy by rocking these clubs every weekend, take care of his responsibilities, paying bills, doing what he loves, and perfecting his image. The music saved his life.

His message to you: “When I come out, I come out to put on for 252 and make sure people enjoy themselves! I wanna be more like a spokesperson to let people know you don’t have to be a shooter or on that block to live life the way u wanna live! Put God first and everything else will come with it. Take care of one another. It aint about just being positive, take care of one another.”

Updated: Lil Boosie is home!

boosie

Update: Lil Boosie is now home.. 🙂 LOL!

Confirmed! Lil Boosie will be home from prison soon. Reportedly the Louisianna rapper was supposed to be out before the end of February, but a new report from AllHipHop.com says his release has been pushed back to March. The release date will not be known for safety reasons. A lot of people have been supporting the Baton Rouge, Louisiana rapper while he has been locked away. I have lost count of how many “Free Boosie” tweets and posts I have seen. With all the support he has received during his time away one can only wonder how many will really support him once he is free. Hopefully those who have screamed for him to be free will continue to ride with him.

A good friend of mine told me about his music years ago and I immediately loved the sound of his voice. She and I used to sing his ratchet sounding lyrics at the top of our lungs even though we are far from “bout that life.” If It wasn’t for Lil Boosie some people wouldn’t have known how to spell INDEPENDENT! LOL! Anyway here are a few old songs I’m sure you are familiar with!

John Legend – All Of Me

John_Legend_

 

This has to be one of the sweetest love songs out. You can’t act like it doesn’t make you feel all warm and mushy on the inside! There is always someone for everyone, even if you haven’t found that person yet. Give someone all of you instead of half of you. Sometimes you have to give your all! John Legend is back with another vocal classic! Getting married? On a dinner date? I highly recommend this song!

Also check out the reggae version for all my rastas out there! 🙂
