Establishment (2014 - present)Edit
Twiztid released A New Nightmare, 4 Tha Fam Vol. 2 mixxtape and Get Twiztid EP independently, then in early/mid 2013 Twiztid stated that they are establishing their own record label, and working out the remaining legal kinks. In February 2014 during a Dead Days Convention Seminar with Blaze Ya Dead Homie, it was announced that Blaze would be signed to Twiztid's new label. In mid 2014 Twiztid announced that Blaze Ya Dead Homie would be releasing 2 albums in 2014 on Twiztid's new label if there were no set backs. A short time later it was announced that Blaze had acquired the rights to his Gang Rags: Extended Version (Uncut & Uncencored) album, and would strip away the beats, and release it the way it was intended to sound. In August 2014 it was announced that Blaze Ya Dead Homie would be releasing his debut album on Twiztid's new label and it would be the first to be released on the label, and it would be titled: Gang Rags: Reborn and will be released on October 21, 2014. On Saturday morning September 12, 2014 INgrooves released it's "New Release Packet" for the month of October it was announced that Twiztid's new label will be called "Majik Ninja Entertainment" and Blaze Ya Dead Homie's album's catalog number will be "MNE001". People have been arguing over if Twiztid's new label is called "Majik Ninja Records" or "Majik Ninja Entertainment" because in the "New Release Packet", it says that the new label will be called "Majik Ninja Records", but on the catalog number for Blaze's new album it says the label will be called "Majik Ninja Entertainment". Twiztid will release the follow up full-length album to their 2013 EP A New Nightmare titled The Darkness in early 2015. In late September 2014 Twiztid did an interview with 411 and they stated that an album will be out in 2014 and The Darkness will be out on January 20 or 27, 2015. On October 6, 2014 it was announced that The Darkness will be released on January 27, 2015. In a mid October 2014 interview with Faygoluvers.net, Twiztid was asked about The R.O.C. and the roster on the label and the response was "We wish we could tell you about the four but.....". They also said that they aren't officially on the label. The R.O.C. is the next confirmed artist on the label. It was also stated that he too is part of running the label as well as Twiztid and Blaze. Twiztid stated in a recent October 2014 interview that they will release their roster for Majik Ninja Entertainment in early 2015. Twiztid also stated that their new film company is called "Better Than Books", and Twiztid will be releasing a series of short videos leading up to their first release on the label as teasers for The Darkness. In an AMA (Ask Me Anything) sessions Twiztid was asked if there were going to be anymore music videos, and Twiztid stated that they are planning on rereleasing W.I.C.K.E.D. and Abominationz. In a mid April 2015 interview with Monoxide by NEHipHop, Monoxide stated that they are close to releasing the roster, but they are working out the remaining legal kinks. He stated that they are going to sign 3 from California, 1 from New York, and 1 from Detroit. He also stated that Twiztid will take a back seat after 2015 to focus on their label and roster.
