Rap-Up TV: Lil Twist Talks Nicki Minaj, Lil Wayne, & Justin Bieber Collaborations

Make way for Young Money’s next superstar Lil Twist. Rap-Up TV caught up with the Mohawk-sporting rapper on the opening date of the “Closer to My Dreams” tour with Diggy Simmons, Mindless Behavior, and Tyga in Los Angeles, where he shared some of the all-star guests on his debut album Don’t Get It Twisted, due later this year.

The impressive roster includes Nicki Minaj (“Wind It”), two tracks with Lil Wayne, a Noah “40” Shebib-produced song with Drake, and “a hot summer record” with Justin Bieber (“Wherever You Are”).

His friendship with the Biebs goes beyond the studio. The pop idol once called him on a whim to fly out to St. Lucia. “Not to even stunt, we go out big places,” said Twist. “We stayed in the biggest house on the island, which was on top of the mountain.”

When he’s not vacationing in paradise, the teen sensation has been working on a mixtape, The Golden Child, for release before his album. Plus, he has his eye on meeting one elusive MC. Find out who it is.
