Lil Twist is a Lil Wayne protege who hopes to one day follow in the footsteps of Drake and Nicki Minaj, and brake out from the enourmous shadow of the Cash Money Records superstar.
While Drake got his big break via his So Far Gone Mixtape and Nicki with blockbuster guest spots alongside Mariah Carey, Ludacris, and Weezy, Twist has a decidely different, er ah, twist on things.
The teen rapper is Lil Wayne’s voice and blogger while the rapper is incarcerated.
“He calls me,” Twist told MTV News about the WeezyThanxYou.com process. “He lets me know what he wants me to update from time and time. Every time he calls, I update everything he wants. That’s my heavy connection to his blog site.
“That’s a hard job. But I am that,” he continued, taking the title as “Lil Wayne’s Voice.” “Me and Wayne, we’re like brothers. He really took me in. He taught me how to do everything, he taught me the music business. We got a strong brother bond.”
Twist, on occasion, has taken over Lil Wayne’s @liltunechi Twitter handle and relays messages back and forth between the fans and his boss.
The duty has placed him at the forefront of Lil Wayne’s fans and with the spotlight ensconded on the young rapper, he hopes to drop his new project shortly.
