Antwaun(420 Boi)Barnes struggled throughout school, prevented from playing his favorite sports (basketball and football) because of his poor grades. "I cared about school, but I used to get expelled for fights. I'd had loved to make all A's, but I just never did." His interests lay elsewhere. At the time, NC based powerhouses like 9TH WONDER & PETTY PABLO An More, were dominating the urban music scene. Less than an hour away, Winston-Salem felt the impact. "We was rockin' right with them," says Twaun. "I was already rappin' before I heard them, but [to see them make it] made it start seeming more real." A.A.D teamed Lil Twaun up with fellow Winston-Salem native Meazzi, and together the two gained an impressive street following with independent releases like 3'4Souljaz and Trill Muzik. Twaun isn't sure exactly how many albums they've sold independently. but somewhere over 10,000 mixtapes , Thats a lot for Unsigned Artist With No Buzz who ain't got a deal.
