The last laugh is Twist's, though. Young Money has, besides label head Wayne, of course, already produced bona fide mega-pop stars in Nicki Minaj and Drake, while others like Tyga and Cory Gunz may not be far behind. Now, with Twist's album the next big Young Money release, the full weight of the imprint's untouchable brand image may help push it over the edge.

It helps that, musically, Twist's album veers away from straight rap and aims for a much broader appeal. An avowed fan of pop and rock acts like Maroon 5 and Amy Winehouse, Twist says Don't Get It Twisted is much more overtly genre-spanning. "It's very universal. It's my pop side, it's my rock side, it's my R&B singing side, and it's my rap side," he says. "You're going to get a lot of different genres on my album." Listeners are also going to get a lot of different marquee names lending their shine. Besides the aforementioned buddy Bieber, Drake and Minaj make appearances, as do Sean Kingston and another recent Young Money signee, Shanell.

And if it all bubbles over, it'll make the lack of "normal" teenaged years all worth it, Twist says — although, he says, he doesn't really feel like he missed out. "Everybody else would probably say, 'Oh, they're pressuring you to do so much hard work,' but this is my fun and games," he says. "It's not a normal childhood, because it's always work, but this is what I love, and this is what I chose to do. So I love it, and I didn't miss out on too much."
