Twista is giving Lil Wayne props and even pointed out similarities between Weezy and the rap icon Tupac Shakur. As he discussed Lil Wayne using Auto-Tune, Twista explained the motivation that Lil Wayne brings out of him. "You can't really hate on Lil Wayne for it 'cause no one had done it before in rap," Twista said in an interview. "He was the first one that done it, so, you have to respect that. I love Lil Wayne 'cause one, he did what Tupac did — brought a lotta records out and exceeded the normal rapper's output. And two, he's one of the last rappers that still makes me want to rap. Like other rappers I listen to and don't feel nothing. But I can listen to Wayne and get inspired to pick up the pad and write something myself."
In related news, Twista recently released his new "Category F5" album. The Chi-Town album visited a local radio station and toured Chicago on his release day. [watch here]
