American rapper Twista escaped with only minor injuries following a horrific car crash which killed one of his entourage.
The star whose real name is Carl Mitchell was traveling as a passenger in a van on the way from Syracuse, New York to his hometown of Chicago, when the vehicle reportedly swerved into the central reservation on Interstate 90 and flipped over.
Arthur Dixon died of his injuries after he was taken to the Harmot Medical Centre, while five other members of Twista’s crew sustained minor injuries. Police are investigating why the van swerved off the motorway, but no charges have been made against the driver of the van.
Twista may be on his way to becoming an “Overnight Celebrity” endorsement.
According to Agenda Inc., a marketing company based out of San Francisco, Twista’s hit, Overnight Celebrity has more brand name references in it than any other song this year.
Agenda found nine brand names included in the Twista hit. The brands mentioned are Apple Bottom Jeans, BCBG, Bebe, Gucci, Jimmy Choo, Mark Jacobs, MTV, Range Rover and Roberto Cavalli.
Rapper and producer Kanye West also includes a lot of brand names in his songs.
According to Agenda, West earns the distinction for the most name dropping this year. He mentions 19 brands in four of his songs alone.
