Twank Star Captures T-Pain, OurStage’s Attention

Last month, up-and-coming rapper Twank Star caught the attention of T-Pain by beating out over 1,000 competitors on OurStage‘s ‘Step in the Ring’ challenge, instantly transforming the young MC into a bonafied ‘artist to watch.’ Contestants were asked to add lyrics to an incomplete T-Pain song, and the OurStage community chose Twank for the top 10, which went on to be handpicked by the R&B star himself.

Though his stock may be quickly on the rise, it has already been a long road to success for the future rap superstar. Hailing from Houston, Texas, Twank started rapping at thirteen, cutting his teeth on local tours and performing at freestyle contests.

These days, armed with a charismatic vocal delivery and an impressive stage presence, Twank is raising eyebrows in the hip-hop world with his debut album, ‘First Impressions,’ which he mainly wrote and produced himself. And while most young rappers can only dream of performing with their idols, Twank has already shared stages with the Ying Yang Twins, 112 and Slim Thug (to name a few).

But don’t expect the success to phase him. “I am not a money-driven rapper,” Twank insists. His passion for music has already taken him this far–who knows what the future holds? Be sure to keep an eye out for this budding MC.
