Hey, it’s an even exchange. Lil Wayne teaches his protégé Lil Twist about the music business and the teenager teaches Weezy F. Baby about navigating modern technology. It was through Twist’s Ustream account in February that Wayne told the world he opened a Twitter account and spit rhymes from Tha Carter IV for fans: “She a monster, but I’m a beast, though/ Take her clothes off, with my teeth, though.”
“He calls me,” Twist said on the blue carpet of the Teen Choice Awards this past weekend in Los Angeles. “He lets me know what he wants me to update from time and time. Every time he calls, I update everything he wants. That’s my heavy connection to his blog site.”
Twist is the honorary voice of Lil Wayne until the music icon returns from prison .
“That’s a hard job. But I am that. … Me and Wayne, we’re like brothers. He really took me in. He taught me how to do everything, he taught me the music business,” Twist added. “We got a strong brother bond.”
Also during Wayne’s February Ustream, you might recall he shouted out Justin Bieber. The Bieb’s connection to the Young Money camp actually runs through Twist. Twist said he spends a significant amount of time with his pop-star homey in the lab.
“I’ve been working hard on my debut album Don’t Get It Twisted,” he revealed. “Me and Justin are like best friends. So we’re always in the studio or we share thoughts through iChat. Nicki [Minaj], we got a great record for my album also.”
Minaj and Justin Bieber are competing in the Best New Artist VMA category along with Ke$ha, Jason Derülo and Broken Bells.
“I don’t even wanna join that fight,” Twist said about who he would pick between his Young Money family member and homeboy. “Whoever wins, I’m going to be happy.”
