Download DJBooth's new App, The PLUG New York, NY -- KOCH Records and Get Money Gang are pleased to announce the release of Twista Presents The Speedknot Mobstaz - Mobstability II: Nation Bizness on March 18th, 2008. The Speedknot Mobstaz are a two emcee collective consisting of Liffy Stokes and Mayz. This release is the first under Twista’s new entrepreneurial venture and label Get Money Gang (GMG).

The first single, “Money To Blow,” will be serviced to urban radio shortly.

Liffy and Mayz met Twista early on in their native Chicago, and when they all found themselves in the same studio while Twista was recording his Atlantic debut, Adrenaline Rush, the Speedknot Mobstaz were born. The Mobstaz were featured on Adrenaline Rush and also began working on their group album, Mobstability, which was released in 1998. Mobstability was well received by fans and painted vivid images of Crook County (Cook County) street life over grimy instrumental canvasses. Mobstability ultimately sold over 700,000 units and was certified gold by the RIAA. The album also produced “In Your World,” which was featured on the Dr. Doolittle soundtrack.

After the Atlantic Records debut, the Mobstaz were involved in the Twista Presents…Volumes 1, 2 and 3 compilation albums. Volumes 1 and 2 sold nearly half a million copies combined. After these compilations, the Mobstaz soon began touring with Twista and working on his next two albums, Kamikaze and The Day After, helping propel the albums to over two a and half million in sales internationally. They also appeared on Adrenaline Rush 2007.

Mobstability II: Nation Bizness features Twista and rap superstar Jim Jones, plus production from Chicago producer Cuzzo and the team from China White Productions. Liffy and Mayz are ready to serve their fans with another dose of street knowledge. “The album is the streets just like the first one was,” says Mayz. “We don’t have to create a fake image; we just have to let our soul speak to the people.”
