Speaking on his Young Money brethren, Twist said that Cory Gunz could "rap circles around Slaughterhouse," the Shady Records supergroup consisting of Joe Budden, Joell Ortiz, Crooked I and Royce Da 5'9," all highly-respected MCs.


"Twist is my little brother...On that, I’m pretty sure he didn’t mean no harm, no foul or nothing...We family and I really take pride in what I do and he knows that," said Gunz. "At the end of the day, we fans. We fans of Slaughterhouse, so it’s all fair."


Cory continued to clear up Twist's comments, which he feels were taken out of context. "Certain things people say get taken out of context, know what I’m sayin'. [It] ends up one place, and everybody adds their own barbecue sauce on every situation. Ain’t nothing too major about that and I’m a fan of Slaughterhouse."
