Twista's Adrenaline Rush is an uneven debut, fluctuating between gritty hip-hop and party-ready rap. He has enough charisma and skill to make many of the pedestrian beats engaging, but it's only when he has a genuine song, like the first single, "Emotions," that Adrenaline Rush truly lives up to its title. ~ Leo Stanley
Vibe (9/97, p.234) - "...Flipping knowledge and ripping rhythms on his second joint, ADRENALINE RUSH, this rapid-fire lyricist from the west side of Chicago takes us on a tumultuos 13-track journey..." The Source (6/97, p.126) - 3 Mics (out of 5) - "...Twista seems to have benefited from the acceptance of the bouncy, quick-paced flow of groups like Bone Thugs-N-Harmony and Crucial Conflict that has become a trademark of the midwest..." Rap Pages (7/97, p.89) - "...For his resurrection, Twista can thank Bone Thugs-N-Harmony....ADRENALINE RUSH is...an overwhelming surge of energy that augments the host body's power level; in this case, that would be Hip-Hop."
Chicago rapper Carl Mitchell, better known as Twista, once made it into the Guinness Book of World Records as the world's fastest rapper (not for nothing was his original moniker Tung Twista). An influential artist since the early 1990s, Twista combines his lightning-quick rhymes with a combination of Southern jeep beats, East Coast gangsta themes, and West Coast G-funk. In the notoriously fickle rap world, he's prospered through several different eras of hip-hop, collaborating with everyone from Puff Daddy to Timbaland and always keeping his name in the game.
