Video: Lil Twist Speaks On Lil Wayne’s Release & Debut Album

November 25, 2010 by Danny M


“My big brother just got home, Weezy F. Baby,” Twist told MTV News from Atlanta. “We did it real big in Miami as soon as he touched down. I actually missed the show he did with Drake in Vegas, but as soon as he did, we partied like crazy. It was a very emotional and fun moment, man, because everybody was there, the whole Cash Money label and Young Money was there. We did it big, and he was just happy to be home, and it felt good.”

Now that Weezy is home, it’s back to business. “Right now, I am working on my debut album, Don’t Get it Twisted,” Twist said. “I actually went back into the album, I was done with it, and I went to Birdman with it, and he loved the album. But I wanted to go back in and get a few more songs by myself. I got a lot of collaborations on the album, so that’s what I’m doing right now.”

VIBE: Can you describe the emotions of having Wayne back home?

Birdman: It feels good for my son to be back home. Shit, we’re all happy.

What was the first thing Wayne did after being released from Rikers?

He spent time with his family. It was important for Wayne to see his children because they didn’t get to visit him while he was away. So his first priority was to see his kids. I would go see him every two weeks, but being out that cage is different. When he finally met with the team he told us, “I love you.” That’s my son. I’ll give my life for my family.
