Twista’s 2004 Hit ‘Slow Jamz’ Receives Platinum Certification

by UNN Feed

Twista has celebrated yet another milestone, as his classic “Slow Jamz” track has finally achieved the platinum certification it has long deserved.

Coming just a few days after celebrating its 20th anniversary, “Slow Jamz” was officially certified platinum by the RIAA on Thursday (January 25). On the same day, both the “Overnight Celebrity” single and the Kamikaze album were also certified double platinum. The album previously earned a platinum certification all the way back in 2004.

Originally released on November 10, 2003, “Slow Jamz” featured Kanye West and Jamie Foxx and eventually climbed to No. 1 on the Billboard Hot 100 charts, making it the first No. 1 track for Twista, Foxx, and West. It also received a Grammy nomination in 2005 for Best Rap/Sung Collaboration, but it lost to “Numb/Encore” by Linkin Park feat. JAY-Z.

Check out the certification, and the video for the track, below.

Twista has been a staple within the Hip Hop community for the best part of 35 years.

Speeding out the gate in the early ’90s with his mesmerizing, rapid-fire flow — which in 1992 earned him the title of World’s Fastest Rapper, according to Guinness World Records — he took the underground by storm, before kicking things into overdrive thanks to his show-stealing guest verse on Do Or Die‘s 1996 Rap-A-Lot Records classic “Po Pimp.”

This breakthrough set the scene for the success that would come with the Chicago rapper’s platinum-selling third studio album, Adrenaline Rush.

By his own admission, the 1997 LP established him as “a real rapper” and helped validate rappers from his hometown. “It meant you had to accept that artists from Chicago could spit,” he told HipHopDX.
