Twista and G.O.O.D. Music

Last year, veteran Chicago rapper Twista revealed that he came close to signing to Kanye’s G.O.O.D. Music imprint. "I actually wanted to [sign] at one point, Twista recalls. "But I don't know what type of vibe Kanye had with me at that time. I mentioned that I would be getting out of my [Atlantic Records] contract and wondered if he wanted to jump down. But I don't know, I guess it wasn't a good idea for him at the time. He should've done it.”
