Mobstabilityby Twista & the Speed Knot Mobstaz
Twista lives up to his official title as the world's fastest rapper and Chicago-style rap ambassador on his 1998 release, Mobstability, with the Speedknot Mobstaz. After breaking out on Do or Die's platinum single, "Po Pimp," in 1996 and releasing his major-label solo debut, Adrenaline Rush, in 1997 for Atlantic's Big Beat imprint, this follow-up hit record stores in 1998. Joining Twista are fellow MCs Mayz (whose smooth flow compliments Twista's rapid-fire attack perfectly) and Liffy Stokes. Literal snapshots of street hustling and violence are sliced between musical tracks that are equally focused on lurid, violent, and macho imagery typical of '90s hip-hop. Highlights include the Bone Thugs-N-Harmony callout "Crook County" and the reworked West Coast groove of the single and title track. With some nice hooks and Twista's incessant, precise flow, there aren't too many Midwestern efforts of this era that are more impressive than Mobstability.
