Year: 1997 Produced By: The Legendary Traxster Album: Adrenaline Rush Label: CWAL/Atlantic
Twista's 1997 opus, Adrenaline Rush, is a certified classic. It was huge regionally and eventually caught fire nationally, going gold with little to no major promotion or airplay. Pairing the Legendary Traxster's dark production with the Guinness Book of World Records–holding MC's rapid-fire delivery proved to be a winning formula, and there's no better example of this chemistry than "Overdose." This four-minute-plus verbal exercise proved that Twista could not only rap fast, but was also one of the best and most precise lyricists doing it. There have been rumors of a sequel (as Twista was abruptly cut off mid-flow on the original) for years, but it has yet to surface.
