Review Summary: lookin' death in between the eyes and no one can save us

"I represent for the MCs that have skills, not just make music for the hell of it. I take the time to concentrate. Otherwise, I could have 10 albums out there, easy. I could sit down all day and write something. But I write when I get in a zone more than writing because I’ve got to do this. I represent the artists that keep it true to what really is, to be able to make rappers want to write." - Carl Mitchell

Chi town Twista is audio gold and no one could or still can touch this album in terms of delivery and straight spitfire. Once Kanye West heard Adrenaline Rush, he wanted to support Twista and his mind to what would become one of the most successful rap/hip hop albums of the 21st Century. In case you're lost, this album went platinum a year prior to YouTube's birth. Kamikaze takes a different direction from his previous album, Adrenaline Rush in terms of slower beats with Twista twice as fast. Like a tornado at an art show. Flinging up anything and everything in his path and making it his own. Granted it's not as raw as Adrenaline Rush or even holds up to that status, it was a remarkable return and a very unexpected album by Twista. This was aimed more towards mainstream but he still spit fire throughout the entire album, not to mention Jamie Foxx made an appearance. What! Yeah that's right, Wanda spit fire on this and it makes you wonder..."is Jamie really a rapper?". Actually, he is pretty goddamn good not only at singing and winging it, he can freestyle like a champ. Facts. A lot of hate is aimed towards Kanye recently, which I understand but his role on this album is his best role since 2004. The sidekick. I mean that in a good way, I mean you can't really touch Twista when he's in the zone. Kanye did a fantastic job with the production on a few tracks as well as backing vocals, especially on Overnight Celebrity. To keep it short and simple, this album is a great return for Twista and a landmark within the genre easily. Get Dat Doe! Get it?

"I want to show the streets that I'm back and that I'm true to the game. Musically, I want to show that I'm still out here doing my thing. After all the people that were out when I was out years ago fell off, I’m still out here competing with the shorties. I also want to gain platinum success. It's something that I haven't done."

This is a true artist who just wants to write music without any sort of gain, granted he had gain with this album when it hit platinum but he still manages to stay true to his roots with no gimmicks and just spits fire. Constantly. Not as good as Adrenaline Rush but still, a great album for 2004 and still, today holds a trophy that other wannabe rappers would dream of attaining.
