Twista Goes Slow And Soft With ‘The Day After’

Twista tells RollingStone.com that his new single with Mariah Carey entitled ‘So Lonely’, like ‘The Day After’s first cut ‘Girl Tonite’, is one “for the ladies.” The Chicago rapper said, “It’s just the natural growth of an artist. When you’re younger, you’re a little scrappy. You rapping for the homies, you probably rapping on the corner about slanging, you rapping about thug stuff, riding down the street making music smoking blunts, just kicking it. But now I’m thirty-something years old, and I love the ladies. I hang out at the clubs, and I don’t rap just about battling no more. I want to tell the ladies they look good in them jeans.”
