Four years after the release of The Perfect Storm, Twista returns with his ninth studio album, The Dark Horse.

A week before its release (August 12), Billboard has an exclusive stream of The Dark Horse. Listen below:

The 13-track standard version is laced with Twista's signature rapid rhymes on a range of topics, from opposition to commitment. The full-length features guest appearances by Tia London, Wiz Khalifa, Tech N9ne and more.

"One thing that I've learned is to not steer too far from my fan base because they really appreciate what you do," Twista told Nah Right's Eskay of The Dark Horse. "You can never change the way you came out. It's cool to try new things but you always want to give them what they expect too. So the thing that I'm happy about with this project is how much it sounds like an Adrenaline Rush anniversary almost. The songs don’t sound the same, but they definitely sound like I'm giving you what you've been missing from Twista."

The deluxe version includes features from hometown comrades, R.Kelly and Chief Keef.
