The Numbers Game: Twista Debuts At #8


Twista gets the shine in this week’s Numbers Game for a few reasons. One reason is obvious; His seventh album Category F5 lands on the charts at #8. Another reason? Even though this guy is still constantly trying to recreate “Slow Jams”, I remember when Twista was one of the most underrated MC’s in the game. I guess H20 was wrong with his prediction that Category F5 wouldn’t crack the Top 20. But hey, Young Water still turned in a great review of the album (Which you can check out here).

Also making debuts on the charts this week: Joe releases his 8th studio album with Signature. La Coka Nostra (A group comprised of Everlast, DJ Lethal, Danny Boy, Ill Bill, & Slaine) dropped their debut album A Brand You Can Trust. And lastly, long time Tech N9ne collaborator Krizz Kaliko releases his second album Genius (Shout out to Chris!)
