New York, NY (PRWEB) May 12, 2005 -- 5W Public Relations, the fastest growing PR agency in the US announced today, the addition of Atlantic Records recording artist - Hip-Hop Superstar, Twista to its growing roster of celebrity clientele in the Entertainment division. After making a breakthrough comeback last year from a 7-year hiatus, Chicagos greatest MC sold over 2 million copies of his smash hit album, Kamikaze, which produced two #1 singles, Slow Jamz and Overnight Celebrity in addition to a top 10 hit So Sexy. Twista will make headlines once again in the fall, with the release of his highly anticipated new album, titled The Next Day which will include collaborations with Award Winning Producers such as Scott Storch, Timbaland, The Neptunes and Kanye West.

Regarded as one of the most important figures in rap history, Twista first captured the worlds attention over a decade ago when he was named the worlds fastest rapper by the Guinness Book of World Records. Famed for his rapid-fire flow, Twista has long been among hip-hops most in-demand MCs, lending his revolutionary technique to records by such stars as Ludacris, P.
