In Dallas, Texas at a rap show many years ago, a brash young rapper asked Mr. Wendell if he could get on stage 'if nobody shows up for their slot'. At first Mr. Wendell said no, but then took a chance on the young kid. That kid was Lil Twist, that performance legendary, and their amazing friendship and collaboration has continued to this day. Hear about the friends love of "Pops" collectibles and the meta-verse, while Mr. Wendell gets Lil Twist excited about the possibilties of crypto and NFT's.
In 2003, ten-year-old Texas native Christopher Moore, under the name Lil Twist, scored a Dallas-area pop-rap hit with "Texas Twist." The performing name stuck, though a couple years passed before Moore's career advanced farther, when he sought out Lil Wayne at a concert and impressed the multi-platinum rapper enough to become his protégé. Signed to Wayne's Young Money label in early 2010, Moore debuted there with "The Leak," featuring Wayne, which became his first single to reach Billboard's Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Songs chart. The following year, XXL magazine featured Moore in their annual Freshman Class feature, and he issued a second charting single with another assist from Wayne, "Love Affair." "Turn't Up," featuring Busta Rhymes, charted in 2012, but Moore's debut album, Don't Get It Twisted, never materialized. Throughout the next few years, Moore recorded with the likes of Mindless Behavior and Soulja Boy, appeared on the Young Money compilation Rise of an Empire, and continued to release mixtapes. At the end of 2018, Moore joined Vh1’s Growing Up Hip Hop where he continues to publicly grow his brand.
