Once again, Twiztid visits the city of Cleveland at the famed Agora. Agora has been the home for Twiztid multiple times over the past several years. If you’re familiar with the Agora, then you would know that there are two parts: the Ballroom and the Theater. Sometimes, when a show is going to be low key, only the ballroom is opened up; however, due to the larger-than-normal size, both the ballroom and theater were opened up. This made it so the venue did not feel like a can of sardines. Initially during the opening acts, the crowd was quite small and spread out; however, by time Twiztid came on, it was packed from front to back. Big shoutout to the Agora for allowing the entire venue to be opened up instead of just the small and dingy ballroom area.

To start off, I missed out on Godz of Kaos. I have seen them numerous times before, and they are steadily putting it down. I also only caught a portion of Insane E’s set. He is a solid dude, and his boldness and driven-like attitude is one of a kind in the underground. Of course, his artwork is some of the best I have ever seen. In regards to his music, I know that The History Mystery Mixtape is due for release, which is a compilation of lost tracks. He also seems to be working on an EP titled Scales and a full-length title Anomaly. It’s been a minute since Insane E has dropped any full releases, so I’ll be on the lookout for both, and expect to see our opinions here at Faygoluvers ASAP.

Menace 2 Sobriety put on a solid set. They have 7 members on stage, and each one contributes in a big way. Their sound can be best described as rapcore with a hint of metal to it. They made the crowd a bit more hype, and the fact that Ohio is their home state (along with Insane E of course) made everyone more engaged. I have to admit that their cover of “Homies” as the encore was a nice touch, and each vocalist gave it their best.

This was my first time seeing Lex the Hex Master live. Initially, he wasn’t too hyped as he tried to crawl his way through songs such as “Raw Shit” and “Ninja.” Eventually towards the end, he got more energetic (possibly due to the crowd getting closer and paying more attention). He ended with “Bomb on ‘Em” and his live version surpasses the studio version by far. Of note is that Lex absolutely does not need a hype man, and seeing him up there by himself just seemed right. He doesn’t need anyone else to carry him (mainly due to his style), and since his career is quite early on, that’s a positive outlook.

I was extremely happy to finally see Zodiac Mprint live. In the past, The R.O.C. would simply come out for a few songs with Blaze Ya Dead Homie, and then vanish. This was a full on set. They performed songs off the new release Ride the Stars, and “Keep It Jumpin’” was a standout track, just like on the album. It got the crowd very hype, and they performed it flawlessly. They also took turns doing their own solo songs, such as the Blaze classic “Nasty” or The R.O.C. track “I’m Here.” They also did unofficial Zodiac songs as well. These can be classified as songs in which it exclusively features the two of them, examples including “E.O.D.” and “Girls They Love Me.” They make for an interesting duo, and have some humor in between as well. I don’t know what’s in store for Zodiac’s future, but I am psyched that it has lasted this long!

This was also my first time seeing Mac Lethal. The best way I can describe him is funny, yet awkward. Some of the stuff he says is downright hilarious, while other things just make you scratch your head. I’m not too familiar with his music, but he didn’t skip a beat. Also interesting is that he researches every town he visits. Since he was in Cleveland, he gave random shout-outs (both during the songs and in between) to the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, Cleveland Indians going to the world series, Superman, and more. It’s nice to see him level with the city he’s in. Towards the end, he did his famous “Pancake Rap” which gained millions of views on YouTube. He claimed that he technically can’t perform the song if he’s physically in a venue, so he had a large strong guy carry him on his shoulders into the crowd to perform the song. Not too sure how true that statement is, but it did make for an interesting performance.

Twiztid had a somewhat different performance this time around. This time, they didn’t have the full Wickedness band with them; however, their drummer Draven was in attendance. Simply having the background music and the drums created a bass heavy atmosphere, and it overall helped with the vibe of the songs. Draven was on point, and he surely gave a great performance. On the contrary though, Twiztid was a bit sick prior to their performance. Although Madrox seemed to be energetic and hyped as usual, Monoxide was a little tired and wasn’t at his best status. They both gave it their best, and unless closely observed, no one would notice whatsoever. Their set list was also refreshing. Not only did they do the classic hits, they also performed some deep cuts as well. I was extremely glad to witness that.

They opened up with “In Hell” which in itself is both spooky and haunting. It’s a good opener, and gives the fans a great initial vibe. Hits such as “We Don’t Die” and “2nd Hand Smoke” were placed within the set, and along with the sole drummer, actually created a unique sound. The crowd was of course enthusiastic towards those songs. The deep cuts (and I call it that simply because Twiztid rarely plays them) were a good selection. “White Trash Wit Tat-2s” was awesome to see, although like many songs, was cut short. “Down Here” was also performed, and although I’m not a huge fan of the studio version, the live version (again with the addition of the drums) made it seem almost like a whole new song.

Twiztid also performed two non album tracks. “Old School Pervert” was one, which Twiztid seems to play often; however, the standout track was “My Addiction.” Considering it’s not on a main album, it was a rare treat to see this live. My girlfriend wifey Mary was so hyped I could barely hold onto her. Twiztid also performed “I’m Alright” and although it is a slow and depressing the song, their performance made it blend well with the rest of the set. Of course, they closed out with “LDLHA-IBCSYWA” and that came as no surprise. It seems like it’s suitable for this era of Twiztid though, and everyone is always glad to see it.

This show at the Agora was one of my favorite times of seeing Twiztid live. The openers did a solid performance, and the crowd wasn’t overly packed due to the entire venue being opened up. Both Mary and I are grateful to Scottie D for the help, so thanks again. My phone had broke prior to the show, so I personally couldn’t get any pictures. But this show will forever be in my mind and I will never forget it. Hopefully Twiztid continues to switch up their set like they did that night, Insane E releases one of his three albums soon, Mac Lethal continues to create a footprint in the underground, and hopefully Zodiac Mprint pushes forward with their project. Only time will tell.
