It's been a long time coming, but Twista has finally been given the resources to generate an album worthy of his underrated talent. Off the momentum of the insanely popular Kanye West-produced "Slow Jamz," Twista delivers no less than a classic presentation of mid-Nineties Southernesque hip-hop on Kamikaze, giving credence to the South's long-time claim that Chicago is truly the most northern point of the Dirty. With the scattered contributions of West, Jazze Pha, R. Kelly, and Wildstyle, the production here is as crisp as it comes. But it's the commanding cadence of Twista's sometimes-indiscernible vocals that grabs your attention: "Put chi name on records in the east/Put chi name on records in the west/Put chi name on records in the south/Bitch how you gone open yo mouth."
