Exclusive: Twista Explains Why Kanye Isn’t On His New ‘Dark Horse’ Album



Twista and Kanye have a history of making classic hip hop hits together but Kanye does not appear on Twista’s latest album, Dark Horse, and we wanted to know why.

In the past, the two have collaborated on songs including, “Overnight Celebrity” and “Slow Jamz” alongside Jamie Foxx and because of their strong Chicago ties, many thought that it would be a sure shot that Yeezy would be featured on the Chicago rapper’s ninth studio album. HipHollywood recently sat down with the 40-year-old Twista and got the juice on why Kanye was nowhere to be seen.

“He is in his world, I am in my world, you know we just haven’t had a chance to get together and collaborate like that. He’s gonna do what he does, but for me, I think it is special that I’m able to get back into the studio with him and make that magic that we made together. So I definitely will be reaching out to him, ” Twista told HipHollywood cameras.

Twista isn’t the first Chi Town rapper who has said that Kanye is too busy with his own stuff to work with them. Just a month ago Common opened up to Sway during an MTV2 interview about Ye being to busy to work on his new album.

“It was like, ‘I’m ’bout to go do this album, ‘Ye. We friends, but if you ain’t really trying to…but if we ain’t gonna create together, it’s all good. We still brothers.’ I think his focus was somewhere else…Marriage, life, good places…I cherish our friendship more than music. I’m grateful for the music we did ’cause Be and Finding Forever was…them joints took me to another level. We grew. We got a relationship that’s stronger than that. So, if we never make music together again, as long as we bros, I’m good,” he stated. 

Kanye has definitely been busy over the last year. With the release of Yeezus, a wedding and the birth of his daughter, North West, we can totally understand why he might of had too much on his plate to work with both artists.

What ‘Geostorm’s’ Gerard Butler & Abbie Cornish Wish They Could Control Via Satellite



One of the many taglines for the new drama, Geostorm, is simply: “Some things weren’t meant to be controlled.”

The film follows a team comprised of world leaders that have one goal in mind: to save the world from natural disasters with the creation of Dutch Boy, a series of satellite grids that control weather and natural disasters around the world.

And while the movie is flooded with action and stellar performances, the film ironically rivals recent natural disasters and crises around the world, and welcomes a bigger conversation. “That’s the genus behind the movie,” the film’s star, Gerard Butler, told HipHollywood. “But nobody knew how acutely it was going to be happening when the movie came out.”

He added, “It’s fun, it’s epic, it’s exciting, but at its core, it’s like, listen, ‘We gotta be careful. We gotta be really careful.”

Co-star Jim Sturgess added. “There is this sort of backbone, a message about climate change, and you kind of hope that audience members leave with that somewhere in the consciousness.”

With the idea, however, that a large unit could control the world’s natural weather patterns, imagine if the same could apply for people’s personal lives.

So when HipHollywood sat down with the cast of the film, we asked: If you could have a grid of satellites over your personal life, what would it control?

For Abbie Cornish, she “wouldn’t mind a satellite that could bring all the local organic seasonal fruits and vegetables to my house ” or “a satellite to drop down fresh flowers.” Jim Sturgess suggested he would love help with “being late for things.”

But it was Butler who suggested “integration.”

He explained, “As opposed to having different satellites and saying, ‘Here’s one for my personal life, here’s one for my relationships, here’s one for my career; I’d rather just have one big satellite, combine them all together, and just shine a whole bunch of positive inspirational light on me as a whole.”

Geostorm hits theaters on Friday, October 20.
