So far, 20-year-old rapper Lil Twist is more famous for his celebrity friends than his music. He's close with Justin Bieber (some say he is a bad influence on the teen singer) and is rumoured to be dating Kim Kardashian's younger sister, Kylie Jenner. He's making the most of his connections with upcoming single Twerk, which features Justin and Miley Cyrus. Lil Twist was discovered age 12 by Lil Wayne, who signed him age 16, and it seems he's inherited his mentor's annoying rap style. He sounds more like a duck than a human. His debut album Bad Decisions is due for release this summer, with Justin and Lil Wayne as executive producers.
