Since forming in Detroit in 1997, Twiztid have changed the face of music, redefining the relationship between rap and metal while pushing the limits of lyrical creativity. By remaining true to underground culture, they have built an international movement: Despite receiving little mainstream airplay, every album they've released has reached the Billboard album chart. Nevertheless, in 2012, the duo, comprised of the rappers Monoxide and Jamie Madrox, left Psychopathic Records to begin a new chapter. Now, for the first time in the career, they have true independence.
Things have moved fast. In 2014, Twiztid formed a label of their own, Majik Ninja Entertainment, and it now includes underground favorites like Alla Xul Elu, Blaze and Boondox alongside rising stars like Young Wicked and G-Mo Skee.
Twiztid released “The Continuous Evilution of Life's ?'s” in January of 2017 to widespread acclaim, debuting at Number Two on Billboard's Rap Albums chart.
They released their first album, Mostasteless, in 1999, and followed with their legendary Freek Show LP, which contained the single "We Don't Die," in 2000. All 11 of the group's albums have reached the Billboard album chart. W.I.C.K.E.D., released in 2009, peaked at Number 11, making it the biggest independent release in the country.
The group has collaborated with rappers like Three 6 Mafia, E-40 and Tech N9ne, and scored deals with Island and Def Jam.
Outside of music, they've co-starred in the movies Big Money Hustlas and Big Money Rustlas. Their radio show, Ashtrays & Action Figures, has expanded Majik Ninja's reach into podcasts and digital media. They organize their own Pop Culture Convention Astronomicon, toured on the entire final cross country Vans Warped Tour, and rocked co headlining shows with Emmure and Motionless In White. Their new album Generation Nightmare brings a very polished sound to enter into a brand new era for The Demented Duo. Never compromising their integrity, they've remained on the cutting edge of music for 20 years and counting.
