The Mississippi-born Deundraeus Portis, aka Twysted Genius, broke through this year with Lil Baby’s Platinum-selling #1 Billboard 200 album My Turn, on which Twysted co-wrote and produced “Emotionally Scarred,” “Sum 2 Prove,” “Live Off My Closet (feat. Future),” and “Forever (feat. Lil Wayne).” My Turn spent five non-consecutive weeks at #1, also topping the Top Rap Albums and Top R&B/Hip-Hop Albums charts. The Platinum-certified “Emotionally Scarred” and “Sum 2 Prove” were released as singles, peaking at #31 and #16 on the Billboard Hot 100 Chart, respectively. The success of these cuts landed Twysted a spot on Billboard's most recent Publisher's Quarterly, coming in at #10, with 0.72% of total U.S. Market Share, an amazing feat for an individual. Meanwhile, in March, he soared to #1 on Billboard’s Hot 100 Producers Chart. His works have been streamed over 230 million times on Spotify and have racked up over 250 million views on YouTube. My Turn was named one of Billboard’s, Complex’s and Uproxx’s Best Albums of 2020 so far, and the album peaked at #6 in the UK.
Managed by Quality Control Music, and currently based in Atlanta, Twysted has produced for other Quality Control roster talent including City Girls. He has upcoming cuts with fellow roster mate Young Thug, plus Future, Gucci Mane, YFN Lucci, OMB Peezy, YBN Almighty Jay, Bankroll Freddy, Plies, Lil Durk, Von, and Pee Wee LongWay, among others, in the works.
