LadyTwist - Rapper, Writer, Comedian

“Well it all began in the mind of a gifted child…” was the opening bar of the verse that introduced LadyTwist to the world as the quick-witted, rapid-spitting female MC from Chicago, on Vh1’s Miss Rap Supreme (a reality television series that set out to find the next great female MC).

 

 

Although Vh1 catapulted The Lyrical Storyteller into stardom, the show itself failed to accurately depict the true depths of her talent.  What viewers saw on Miss Rap Supreme was merely an appetizer compared to what the multi-faceted entertainer brings to the table.  In addition to music; Twist is also a comedy writer, voice-actress, stand-up comedian and published author. All of the above, combined with her flawless lyrical delivery, make LadyTwist one of very few entertainers with the ability to engage a broad range of audiences simultaneously. 

 

LadyTwist credits her lyrical versatility to her loyal adoration of rap artists Eminem, Bone Thugs-N-Harmony, Ludacris and Lupe Fiasco. As a comedian she idolizes the likes of Sommore, Adele Givens and Kevin Hart. Put all of these legends in a blender with a shot of vodka and you have LadyTwist: The Lyrical Storyteller!

  

After losing her father to prostate cancer at the peak of her fame, Twist abruptly disappeared from the Hip Hop scene. During her bereavement she wrote two novels: "The Silent Treatment" and "Daddy's Little Girl". "The Silent Treatment" is now available for purchase on Amazon and Barnes & Noble. The fictional memoir "Daddy's Little Girl" is slated for a late 2019 release.

 

 

 

 

During the filming of Miss Rap Supreme in Los Angeles, several of the show's producers and cast members suggested that Twist consider moonlighting as a stand up comedian. The biggest nod came from film director and producer John Singleton. While judging an acting competition on the show, he commented to hosts, MC Serch and Yo Yo; "Twist has a natural comedic talent". However, at the time, the 22 year old had a vested interest exclusively in music and ignored their suggestions...

Years later, while working as a host/producer at Chicago Public Radio, a co-worker coerced her into performing at a comedy open mic. Armed with nothing more than a unique perspective on life, her first stand up comedy show was an effortless success. Since her humble beginnings, she has shared the stage with comedy greats Brian Babylon and Damon Williams amongst many other well known Chicago comics. Her current projects include her self-produced news satire show "The Confuckery Report", and the 5th installment in "The Demotape" mixtape series entitled: "The Demotape 5: Supply and Demand".

Twizzle (as she's affectionately called by fans) has a trademarked entertainment style that is amiably honest and riddled with shock value. From amusing word play as a rapper to colorful viewpoints as a comic, you'll never get bored when LadyTwist is "in the building"!
