Hello UrbanERs, OUTKAST, YESS!!! This was a hip-hop quotable that I have always wanted to do for a long time. But each time it came down to it, I always find myself fighting with which quotable to do. Every single song Outkast jumps on, whether separate or together, they send your nodding head and tapping [...]
Dear Urban Twisters, I would like to first apologize for my long hiatus from theurbantwist.com. It’s been awhile since I did an article for “We’re Bringing Back Lyrics” and “The Speaker Box” Columns. But I will be back giving you the raw on Hip-Hop related topics. I hope that you continue to look to this [...]
If anyone have never heard this man’s smooth, soulful, yet gangsta voice on a song, you might as well been living under a rock. Hip-Hop lost one of it’s greatest pioneers of the hook, Nate Dogg, at the age of 41. The web is buzzing at this moment from fans to the major artist he [...]
Its rare that you find a mainstream hip-hop artist, that still have a huge underground following, a recognized actor, and the backing of a record label that appreciates and pushes lyricism of their artist as a major marketing tool. Kanye West’s GOOD Music imprint has a hefty conglomerate-sized roster, that include one half of The [...]
It’s been a minute since we have heard any sound out of Texas, from a hip-hop prospective at least. Yes, the lone star state is home to many artist like Beyonce, Slim Thug, Chamillionaire, Paul Wall, GS Boyz, Dorrough, Bun B, and the late Pimp C. But you can’t mention Texas without mentioning Scarface. He [...]

Hello UrbanERS, Once again I’m digging in the Nicki Minaj goody basket, for a batch of tongue twisting mind blowing lyrics. This week’s lyrics comes from Eminem, Slim-Shady, Marshall, whatever you wanna call him, the guy is consistent with flow, lyrical stabs, and humorous suprises. Check these lyrics from “Romans Revenge” on Nicki Minaj’s “Pink [...]

Hello Urban Twisters, Its been a minute since i broke out with something for the speaker box, forgive me. Hope everyone had hell of a stuffing of great times, family, and of all things the food this Thanksgiving. Well lets get down to the nitty-gritty. Just when you thought that Lil Kim was on her [...]
“It’s to catchy now, don’t make no damn sense” “Stop playing the wack ish, and play some Nas, KRS One, or Rakim, play something GOOD!” “50 cent ain’t as hungry as he use to be” “Another dance again, I haven’t finish learning the stanky leg yet” “What happened to lyrics? Why does it sound like [...]
Although hip-hop has changed in the eyes of the many, there is the spectacle going around that it is no longer alive or that its remaining spirit being killed off by the so called “techno-driven, pop oriented, simple rhyming, bounce-induced method” that is taking the clubs and eventually radio by storm. Leaving those who crave [...]
Forgive me if I might be all over the place, but I will try to sum up this article the best I could on my view of Hip Hop. One of the greatest experiences I had was back a few years ago when I was part of the Island/Def Jam street team. I remembered flying [...]
“Stop”…………”HAMMERTIME” oh oh oh oh (I had to do it). This one is a crazy one. Apparently King Hammer plans to make a comeback around Halloween for one reason, Jay-Z. Yeah, I know, its hard to picture or even think that this can count as a major hip-hop feud, but it seems that this could [...]
This story right here gets my patented “Oh Hell Naw”!!!! Today is the 9th Anniversary of the World Trade Center attacks that happened on September 11th, 2001.
