  • Twiztid



    Since forming in 1997, Twiztid have changed the face of music, redefining the relationship between rap and metal while pushing the limits of lyrical creativity. By remaining true to underground culture, they have built an international movement: Despite receiving little mainstream airplay, every album they've released has reached the Billboard album chart. Nevertheless, in 2012, the duo, comprised of the rappers Monoxide and Jamie Madrox, left Psychopathic Records to begin a new chapter. Now, for the first time in the career, they have true independence.


    Things have moved fast. In 2014, Twiztid formed a label of their own, Majik Ninja Entertainment, and it now includes underground favorites like Blaze and Boondox alongside rising stars like Young Wicked and G-Mo Skee.


    "We have artists that are killing it in every different type of music," says Madrox. "We're keeping alive these old ideas that other motherfuckers let go to the wayside, and at the same time, we're offering a whole bunch of new type of flavor as well. We're putting out stuff that makes you say, 'Damn, that's what it's about!'"


    Twiztid have become experts in the art of releasing records. Now they're using what they've learned to guide the next generation of underground talent. But this isn't limited to music—Majik Ninja is on its way to becoming an independent conglomerate worthy of Tyler Perry. "Music is just the kickstart," says Monoxide. "Five years from now we might not even be talking about a Twiztid record. We'll be talking about the movies we're making, and the other artists on Majik Ninja."


    At the moment, however, there's still time for the studio, and the duo has more to say than ever. In January, Twiztid released a new album, The Continuous Evilution of Life's ?'s, to widespread acclaim, debuting at Number Two on Billboard's Rap Albums chart. One listen reveals why: This is one of the most energetic releases of the band's career, pushing the pedal on a furious sound that recalls fan favorites like Mutant (Vol. 2).


    Fans and critics have pointed to the record's amplified metal influence, but Monoxide takes a more nuanced approach. "As far as talent—song structuring, songwriting—I think this album encompasses everything from where we started to where we are now," he says. "There is metal, but to me it's 75 percent a rap record. Only now we've found a way to encompass both worlds without it being forced." He laughs as he considers the accomplishment. "We actually got good at it!"


    "This album is pissed off," says Madrox. "That's what rock is really about."


    Twiztid was formed in Detroit—Detroit proper—in 1997. They released their first album, Mostasteless, in 1999, and followed with their legendary Freek Show LP, which contained the single "We Don't Die," in 2000. All 11 of the group's albums have reached the Billboard album chart. W.I.C.K.E.D., released in 2009, peaked at Number 11, making it the biggest independent release in the country.


    Twiztid left Psychopathic Records in 2012, and they independently released their A New Nightmare EP in 2013. Underground Australia would name it the best album of year, making it the first EP ever to win the award. They released their first album on Majik Ninja, The Darkness, in January of 2015. It too won Underground's album of the year poll.


    The group has collaborated with rappers like Three 6 Mafia, E-40 and Tech N9ne, and scored deals with Island and Def Jam. "Lyor Cohen pulled us into his office as was like 'You two motherfuckers can rap,'" remembers Monoxide.


    Outside of music, they've co-starred in the movies Big Money Hustlas and Big Money Rustlas. Their radio show, Ashtrays & Action Figures, has expanded Majik Ninja's reach into podcasts and digital media. Never compromising their integrity, they've remained on the cutting edge of music for 20 years and counting.


    "We're the epitome of the underground," says Methric. "There's nothing in the world like us, and our entire record label is built on that principle, promoting other artists who are like that too. We saw a lane open up, and we were like, 'That's it. This is our calling.'"


    What does it mean for a group like Twiztid to remain underground in 2017, especially after so many years of success?


    "For us being underground means continuing to be what made you true—staying true to that," says Monoxide. "We don't have to worry about anyone taking our songs off the radio. We don't have to worry about TV not playing our videos. Because we control everything. We found a way to survive without it."


    "But make no mistake," adds Madrox, "if they want to put us on TV and see what it's like to be inside of our world, we still might show y'all."

  • Prozak


    Hardcore Rap

    Normal is not a word that people used to describe Prozak. Not his appearance, not his music,
    not his views on life and society. So, it makes perfect sense that the Saginaw, Michigan rapper
    selected Paranormal as the title of his new album on Strange Music.

    “I chose that title because genre-wise I can do rock-rap, the hip-hop, storytelling, a little bit
    of the dark stuff,” reveals the artist-director also known as The Hitchcock of HipHop. “I’m
    Paranormal to the music industry. One thing I keep hearing from people whether it’s A&Rs or
    publicists is that they’ve got to figure out how to market me. After hearing that so much, I felt
    like what I do is paranormal to the scene. My music is something that’s outside the range of
    normal. This is not cookie-cutter hip-hop. You can’t say this is gangster rap or backpack rap or
    that this is just for the hipsters. You’re not going to be able to categorize it that simply. I make
    complex music for complex people.”

    Indeed. Bolstered by production from Mike E. Clark (Insane Clown Posse, Kid Rock),
    Michael “Seven” Summers (Tech N9ne, XV), Robert Rebeck (Tech N9ne, Kottonmouth Kings)
    and The Legendary Traxster (Mariah Carey, Ludacris), Paranormal takes listeners on a powerful
    lyrical and sonic journey into the mind of one of rap’s most compelling artists.

    “The Tell A Tale Of Two Hearts,” for instance, was inspired by Edgar Allan Poe’s short
    story “The Tell-Tale Heart.” Prozak’s song, which sounds like Tim Burton meets hip-hop,
    discusses what happens when two people are in love and one of them dies suddenly. The twist
    is that the deceased person is still present in their lover’s life. They do not want to leave their

    Prozak then teams with a live band and DJ Starscream from Slipknot for “The End Of Us.”
    This hardcore track features Prozak exploring the consequences of living in a consumer-driven

    “Everybody is worried about buying $300 and $400 cellphones,” Prozak says. “It's like we’re
    farm-raised, like guinea pigs right from birth. Everything is marketed to you from the time
    you’re old enough to even understand what it is. It just happens at the beginning and goes all the
    way through life. The funny thing is in the genre of hip-hop, everyone is worried about image.
    All it does is push everything even further. Everybody's worried about $800 outfits and 20-inch
    rims, but none of these people even have a lifestyle that can support that. It’s about consumerism
    and everybody being brainwashed into thinking that they’ve got a have these things in order to
    be accepted. It spiraling out of control and eventually it will all collapse.”

    Another volatile subject Prozak examines on Paranormal is prejudice. On the charged

    song “Hate,” he looks at the implications of persecution based on racial, religious and economic
    grounds. Shot in a train station from the 1880s that had segregated waiting rooms, the song’s
    explosive video features appearances by stand-ins for The Pope and members of the Ku Klux
    Klan and Taliban.

    Prozak takes a more optimistic approach with “Million Miles Away.” On this thoughtful
    selection, he wonders if humans would be able to create a utopian society if they could wipe the
    slate clean and start over. While filming the video for “Million Miles Away,” Prozak and his
    team traveled throughout Michigan, Illinois and Missouri and had people explain the one thing
    they would change about the world if they could.

    As his songs and their subject matter demonstrate, music is about much more than image for
    Proazk. It’s about substance.

    “People write about stuff that interests them and that they feel passionate about,” he says. “The
    topics on my album are the things that matter to me. To me, all you have is life. You have to
    look at the things that are going on that are incorrect or the things that are affecting your life, the
    hypocrisy of what’s going on out there. All that stuff matters. I know that this is entertainment
    and that people listen to music and watch music for an escape from reality. I wouldn’t say that
    I’m a political rapper, but a lot of those things do matter. In making music for people, I believe
    you have somewhat of a responsibility to put something positive out there or bring attention to
    things that people should be aware of for part of a greater good.”

    Prozak’s razor-sharp focus has helped him become one of rap’s most formidable independent
    artists. During the last decade, he’s appeared on four national tours and done more than 1,000
    performances, where his moshpits rival those of any heavy metal show. The Michigan rapper
    earned a lofty 3.5 Mics in The Source for his 2008 album, Tales From The Sick, and has
    collaborated with Tech N9ne, Twista, Cypress Hill and Insane Clown Posse, among others.

    As a filmmaker, Prozak released the first two installments of his A Haunting On Hamilton
    film series, which opened with sold-old screenings of 2,000 people per screening in Saginaw,
    Michigan. He also directs his own music videos, ensuring that his art is properly presented

    Now, with Paranormal, Prozak has delivered a project that hits hard lyrically and aurally, the
    type of release that stays with a listener long after the music stops.

    “I wanted to put out the best record that I thought I was capable of, an album that would really
    define who I am,” Prozak says. “If you want to know who I am or what kind of artist I am, this
    record will set that tone completely. It’s a really deep record. To me, it’s an album. It’s not a CD
    of tracks. It’s an album. It has that feel.”

    A Paranormal feel at that.
