Busta Rhymes and Twista invade the NZ stage this November

Rap heavyweights Busta Rhymes and Twista are making a whirlwind stop-over in New Zealand, playing their back-to-back concert at Auckland's Logan Campbell Centre this November.

Born and bred in Brooklyn, Busta Rhymes is one of the unequivocal superstars of hip-hop. His smash hits 'Woo Hah! Got You All In Check', 'Put Your Hands Where My Eyes Could See' and 'Fire It Up' have been conquering and dominating charts across 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. These include his 1991 debut 'A Future Without a Past', 2006's 'The Big Bang' featuring Missy Elliot, Nas and Timbaland and 2012's 'Year of The Dragon'. At the moment, Busta Rhymes is poised to release a new record, which is already being touted as his best yet.

Sharing the stage is also a legendary rap icon of the same calibre, Twista. Hailing from Chicago, the 44-year old rapper is famed for his own unique 'double-time rap', which won him a place in the Guiness Book of Records in 1992, being the fastest rapper in the world. His jaw-dropping record says that he can pronounce 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' (2004), 'Adrenaline Rush' (2007) featuring T-Pain and Pharrell and last year's 'Crook Country'. A hugely in-demand rapper, Twista has also worked with the likes of Jay-Z, Kanye West and Lady Gaga.

Don't miss your chance to witness two of hip-hop's immense talent, Busta Rhymes and Twista, go back-to-back onstage this November!
