Infamous-minded, you’ve been blinded.
Upon first hearing the raspy, coarse bars of Twin Gambino, aka Big Twins, it’s an almost automatic reveal that, apart from copious amounts of blunt smoke, the Infamous Mobb emcee’s voice has been wrecked from great pain and loss. The trife life certainly courses through this Queensbridge rapper’s blood, no doubt.
On the Alchemist produced, 2002 song “B.I.G. T.W.I.N.S,” he raps “I have no feelings inside. Maybe cause my twin brother died in front of my eyes.” A tragedy like that will have a death grip on one’s soul and heart. Over the following years since the release of Special Edition, Twins has started to make peace with himself, while still keeping the grimy bars he’s best known for untouched.
With his next album, TNT — a collaborative effort between he and LA producer Twiz the Beat Pro due for a release on April 1st, the IM3 spitter links up with Durag Dynasty’s Killer Ben on “Straight Face.” Listen below.
