The CHOPPED AND SCREWED remix version of Twista's DAY AFTER delivers all the inventive head-spinning rhymes of the original version (Twista is, reputedly, one of the fastest rappers on the planet). But as the remix designation would have it, DAY AFTER is edited, re-thought, and reconstructed in ways that are disquieting, thrilling, and brain-stretching. With the genre's signature woozy, slo-mo effects on display throughout, CHOPPED AND SCREWED is yet another way to enjoy this top-tier spitter.

After nearly a decade as an underground favorite for his near-impossible rapid-fire raps, Chicago MC Twista suddenly exploded on the scene with one of the biggest hits of 2004, "Slow Jamz," and its accompanying KAMIKAZE, along with gaudy appearances on many other major R&B hits. A year later, Twista returns with THE DAY AFTER, a consistently solid record that echoes the sound of its predecessor.
THE DAY AFTER's title track starts things off, as a flurry of chaos gives way to a soulfully panoramic, strikingly earnest view of a near-fatal experience. Twista follows with the extraordinarily sinister, predatory "Check That Hoe," perfectly exhibiting his hypnotically appealing slow-fast attack, rife with his head-turning lines. Twista moves beyond his high speed rhyming abilities, which once seemed just an impressive gimmick, to achieve a masterly blend of playful rhymes and dark gangster visions of street hustling and immense sensuality.
