US legends - Busta Rhymes and Twista - are making a whirlwind stop-over in New Zealand for an Auckland show this November.

Presented by Pato Entertainment, Talk Later and Flava, the rap heavyweights will go back-to-back at Logan Campbell in Auckland on Friday, November 23

Born and bred in Brooklyn, Busta Rhymes is one of the unequivocal superstars of hip-hop, with smash hits such as ‘Woo Hah! Got You All In Check’, ‘Put Your Hands Where My Eyes Could See’ and ‘Fire It Up’ conquering and dominating charts around the globe. 

With a career that has spanned more than 20 years, Busta Rhymes has countless critically acclaimed and Grammy-nominated albums to his name, including his 1991 debut A FUTURE WITHOUT A PAST; 2006’s THE BIG BANG featuring the likes of Missy Elliot, Nas and Timbaland and 2012’s YEAR OF THE DRAGON

Busta Rhymes is now poised to release a new record, which is already being touted as his best yet.

Sharing the stage at Logan Campbell, is a legendary hip-hop artist of the same calibre, Twista.

Hailing from Chicago, Twista is famed for his own unique ‘double-time rap’, which won him a place in the Guiness Book of Records in 1992 for being the fastest rapper in the world, pronouncing 598 syllables in 55 seconds. 

Twista also has an impressive discography, from his 2004 album KAMIKAZE, which topped the US Billboard 200 album chart and included the hit song ‘Slow Jamz’; ADRENALINE RUSH 2007 in 2007 featuring T-Pain and Pharrell and last year’s CROOK COUNTRY. A hugely in-demand rapper, Twista has also worked with Jay-Z, Kanye West and Lady Gaga.

Both immense talents in their own right and famed for their electric, full-energy live shows, having Busta Rhymes and Twista back-to-back on the same stage, guarantees Kiwi fans an unforgettable night of worldclass hip-hop. Do not sleep on this one!
