Surprise! It's TWISTA!!!!
Yesterday surprisingly turned out to be one of my favorite days of existence on this beautiful planet. Just as I was walking out of work, I received a phone call informing me that Twista was shooting a music video about a mile from my work. Being that Twista has been my favorite rapper ever since I found out who he was, I could not pass on this opportunity. Twista also holds the Guinness World Record for the fastest rapper in the world, being able to produce 598 syllables in 55 seconds. Honestly, I almost passed on this because I had exactly one hour before I started a shift at my second job. Thankfully I decided to go and made it in just enough time to witness a music video being shot by Twista and Tech N9ne. While standing in the basement of an old downtown Minneapolis warehouse building in awe, I noticed the one-and-only Twista was standing about five feet in front of me. We made eye contact and that must have given me the courage to walk up to him and ask for a picture. Before I could finish my sentence, one of his body guards stepped in between us. Twista then advised him that "it was cool" and we proceeded to stand together for a few moments while this picture was taken. I'm holding on to the back of his pimped out (leather? snake skin?) jacket although you can't tell. I also shook his hand after this and thanked him from the bottom of my heart for making my day/decade. Yesterday will not be forgotten. Thanks Carl Terrell Mitchell!! You don't know what that meant to me.
