Twiztid releases “Back 2 the 80s” EP for FREE to Astronomicon Attendees [Listen/Download Inside!]

Juggalos and Juggalettes…it’s 4 AM, and I just got back to my hotel room from the Twiztid Pop-up shop at Astronomicon!  I picked up a few goodies, but what I’m most excited to share with you is this new Twiztid EP that was given to those in attendance of the Back 2 the 80s party tonight!

Twiztid headlined the show, of course, and chose a set list full of Juggalo classics!  The panel room was packed full of ninjas singing along while Madrox and Monoxide murdered the stage! They brought up special guests Young Wicked, Big Dustin, Blaze, The R.O.C., and more!  While there were no new tracks debuted, they did have a handful of new twists on old classics.  Being an 80s kid, I really dug that shit.

To add to the flavor, on the way out of the venue, we were handed an EP called Back 2 The 80s which contains 5 tracks including the 80s remixes that we just heard performed!

Instead of keeping this to myself, I’m gonna hook you up!  I’m sure you’ll steal it, put it on Youtube, monetize it, and collect 37 cents in a few years, so…you’re welcome.

Now, for those of you who just want to give it a listen, check it:

I know some of you younger ninjas aren’t going to know what these tracks are, so to make this post even better, I’ll hook you up with those original tracks.  Peep ’em all, and enjoy!

David Bowie – “Let’s Dance”

Hall & Oates – “I Can’t Go For That”

Beastie Boys – “No Sleep Til Brooklyn”

Huey Lewis – “The Power Of Love”

If you’re close enough to make it to Astronomicon tomorrow or Sunday, I’d highly suggest that you do!  Get your day passes at the door, and find out more at Astronomicon.com!

    Whoever did the censoring at Mne.

    Mne stooge 1: they say nigga quite alot in this song. Should we censor that part out?

    Mne stooge 2: well in today’s cultural climate being what it is and how our label wants to become mainstream yes I think it’s best for everyone.

    Mne stooge 1: Jamie uses homophobic lyrics aswell and says fag, should we censor that part out too?

    Mne stooge 2: Oh but he’s probably using fag under a different context right? Like not referring to gays?

    Mne stooge 1: No he’s literally referring to homosexuals. Censor it?

    Mne stooge 2: nah fuck ’em.

    LOL shouldn’t Jamie be berating himself for using homophic lyrics? Since in his own words so many members of the FAM are gay? Douuuuuuuuuble standardsssssss.

    If I was Twiztid id censor to. I used to talk that way in my late teens early twenties and when you get older you realize how shitty it looks. Even if your black friends are cool with it its still not really cool to do. If you gotta watch whose around before you start dropping N bombs you really shouldnt be saying it.

    As for the homophobic thing I do agree that Jaime shouldnt have shitted on J for it while he does it so much. However its not like the kid walked up and he just started shooting off about it to him. Why do you think the kid was ready to record him without him knowing it? Just like how Mono gets accused of running his mouth when most of the instances are them responding to people fucking with them in the live chats or comments. However maybe he should think a little more before he says things a certain way because they can come off as arrogant.

    Also the people playing both sides and acting nuteral are lame as shit. Sorry if I said “however” a lot I’m kinda stoned rambling

    It doesn’t matter if it was being recorded or not, the conversation would have gone exactly the same way regardless. It’s obvious that Twiztid just used the opportunity to hate on ICP to a fan because they didn’t think anyone but that person was listening, but the recording shined a light on who the real back stabbing shit talkers are in this beef, Twiztid. And I agree fuck fence sitters, McL.

    You said all that just to hold hate over mne and twiztid? Jeez dude grow up or go get a job or pick up a new hobby. Do SOMETHING with your life other than whining on blogs. Or can we start calling you one of CPN’s “stooges”

    I can guarantee that if twiztid and company stayed on psy and remained in the shadow behind icp, there wouldn’t be any critics over mne, miss me with that fake ass hate just cause they moved on. You guys would be on Twiztids nuts still so fuck off

    Fact is, all you drama queens need to get over the “beef” that twiztid and icp had briefly for a year or two from back in what…. 2013, 2014? Fuck sakes man y’all need to move on from all that old bullshit for real. Who cares. If this little juggalo beef hurts you or me in a financial way then I’ll give a shit, until then piss off. It’s old and obnoxious, knock it off juggababies

    Hey it’s not my fault Twiztid were caught on tape talking shit on ICP like a couple high school teenaged divas. And 2013? Are you fucked in the head? This shit cracked off in 2017 you retard and there’s been shots fired on either side during 2018 and 2019 you brain dead twizzler. Safe to say I have a job retard and hardly spend alot of time to type these comments.
    LOL you’re saying if Mne never existed then people wouldn’t be criticizing Mne? well done genius. People care about rap beef and not a damn thing you can do about it, were you saying the same shit to Biggie n Pac fans when shit was poppin off? No you probably joined in you little hoe.

    Yeah, but what the fuck happening is what I’m questioning.

    TBH, I know a lot of gay folks who are sick of the LGBTLMNOPKMFDM shit. “Everybody seems to be a…” Bruh they’re literally dressing up little boys in dresses.

    Compare that to saying “Girl, Ese, Nigga, etc.” it’s more of a poser move.

    I do, however, disagree with all censorship and think they should just deal with their lyrics as is or say “ninja.” The censor scratch sounds dumb and would make me want to look up the original lyrics. The internet (and the liner notes) is forever.

    ICP on Amazing Jeckel Brothers: I say what I want, whenever I feel. Fuck your big contract record deal.
    ICP on the same album: Because (censored) squeezed on some little kid’s balls.

    Gotta love how ICP talks about not being censored by a big record company on the exact same album that they allow themselves to be censored by a big record company.

    Anyone else amused by these ICP sheeps bitching about Twiztid doing the EXACT SAME SHIT that ICP has done for years?

    If you really think I was criticizing Twiztid purely for censoring their music then my point flew straight over your simple ass mind. The point was they censored “nigga” for “reasons” but some how those same “reasons” didn’t apply when choosing whether or not to censor “fag”. Like they care about offending black people but don’t give a fuck about gays? Meanwhile Jamie is bitching like a teenaged girl to a fan about J using homophobic lyrics?? Fuck outta here Jamie. Just an interesting observation, no need to have a twizzler panic attack. Here’s another reason why you’re retarded, you said those 2 scenarios are the exact same shit when they’re actually 2 very different situations, in 1 the censoring is coming from an outside source. In 2 the censoring is being done by the Majik Homoz themself. But again that wasn’t my point, you simpleton LOL.

    Hate to admit it, but I’m with you on this one MilkyShitter. I remember hearing them play DMFD live @ Warped Tour & thinking to myself how wack it was that they’re suddenly afraid to say nigga, then thinking how much more wack it is they’re still ok with saying fag for some reason. I’d prefer they don’t censor a thing, but if they felt like they’ve out grown some old lyrics, I guess I can respect that…unless they’re ignorant enough to think that nigga is somehow more offensive & disparaging than fag. Dumb move.

    The funny thing is, the way they used “fag” was worse than how they used “nigga”. Because the latter wasn’t coming from a hateful place. It’s obvious that they just looked at “nigga” as a term in a certain culture and they thought they were part of that culture and everyone around them was probably saying it. I’m not saying that makes it ok for them to use it, but it wasn’t said with hateful intentions. That can be chalked up to some stupid shit you do as a young dude not knowing better. But the way they used “fag” was hateful. It was referencing, demeaning and disapproving of gay people. So the censorship really doesn’t make any sense. Or at least, it has nothing to do with being respectful. They are just afraid of the repercussions that they may get from using “nigga”, no matter the nuances, but “fag” is still perfectly fine to use in hip-hop, even if it comes from a completely hateful place.

    Having said that, I think this is a really dope, fun little EP!

    Exactly my point T.O. And then they pretend they care about gay people by bitching about ICP lyrics to fans, fakest shit I ever seen. And Jamie really is spitting some hate towards gays and lesbians in the song too but he doesn’t care when HE does it, only violent J, Jamie is a bitch.

    EXACTLY. Nigga was used as a synonym for dude/bro/etc, not a derogatory slur towards black people. Fag was used hatefully, as an actual slur towards homosexuals, not in the commonly used slang use as a synonym for loser/uncool/etc.

    Ignorance that I hope they have grown past, but apparently not if they think their use of Nigga is more offensive & needs to be omitted.

    Oh and MickeySplinters, yes I do hate you, but ya know, MZL & shit fam.

    @onelegjuggalo, damn glad you survived homie!

    an on this homophobic shit, its not natural, ‘but some animals have sex with the same sex’ yea they also eat their offspring to. Homosexuals have names for ‘straight’ people and they use them in a condescending tone, ‘csi’ ‘terf’ etc, gay people act like smug assholes and are im inventing a new word here ‘straightaphobic’ ive seen more hate from gays tossed towards straight people, then the other way around.Just go look on gay ass circle jerk hug box reedit, in every comment section, you see someone shitting on whites who practice Christianity 9 times outta 10 its a gay person. Look in the last ten years how becoming trans has become a meme, a way to get accepted because no woman would want them, you cant tell me there was all these traps and trannys 20 years ago , because its a fact there wasnt, maybe a few thousand across the world. Now because of twatter and tumbler, these young impressionable people who are lonely get brain washed by these loons and ‘start to transition’ its a fad, trend, do these fucking morons not realize that 99 percent of them dont pass and how stupid they’re going to look when their 50?(if they dont become part of the 41 percent before then) These cancel culture fucks can ruin someones live just because they cant remember a pronoun, accidently say he, its fucking sicking and needs to stop. You wanna be gay? fine i dont care, you wanna have your attention seeking parades? fine, just dont fucking walk around with your dick hanging out with children around, a fat lesbian in a blow up pool getting pissed on in broad day light in public( yes theres a video) These people identify their whole identify on look at me im gaaaaaay!! Noone cares, keep it to yourself, then the lgbtq community wouldnt get as much hate, to quote that fine asian man on the epic documentary ’empire of dirt’ “its all so tiresome”
    Music is a medium to express emotions, feelings, you should be able to say whatever the fuck you want, if you dont like what someone say on a track dont listen to it. Nigga, Nigger, its just a word, i grew up in the ghetto , blacks dont care about that shit, it just gives them a excuse to fight and they have told me this numerous times,’WHITEBOY’ is how every single black american in the united states address white people, and its a blatant sign of disrespect when they say it, words are just words people, if you’re an adult and wanna kill someone because of a word, you have problems

    I always found it off-putting that Twiztid used the N-word in their earlier albums, though obviously it was normal to them in those times where they are from. Anyway, seeing a little negativity towards these tracks. This was just a fun giveaway for them. I’m diggin it, if you can’t get down with The Power Of We Don’t Die at least, I feel bad for you.

    twiztid actually took N and Fag off a lot of songs for remixes, this song in particular. I remember an interview from a few years ago where madrox says they dont say it anymore, and on future releases of old songs they would void it out because it doesnt make sense to say it anymore.

    Just for the record Twiztid still uses the word nigga, still today. Or atleast Jamie does, he was seen in Insta with Gmo tryna act hood and referred to Gmo as “my nigga” this was last year so they haven’t out grown using the word they’re simply censoring their own music for the sake of not offending black people while simultaneously not giving a fuck if they offend gay people.
