Twisted Black, 'Street Fame' (TVT)

7
Street Fame
Critical Mass
Label: TVT

by Kyle Anderson

Twisted Black might be the most legit coke rapper ever -- he was recently convicted in federal court of conspiracy to distribute crack. But he's not just a rap sheet; he's also a storyteller whose lyrics recall Proust's madeleines (a piece of jewelry, the sound of a drug dealer's shoes when he runs from the cops) as much as Biggie's hustler tales. Street Fame is flush with tracks like "Coldest Summer Ever," a breathless account of two dealers named Heavy and Pretty Boy trying to outscam one another. These epic narratives are filled with such chilling specificity that it's a miracle Black survived to spin them.
