"Overnight Celebrity" is the second single off Twista's 2004 album Kamikaze. The song was produced by Kanye West and contains a sample of the Lenny Williams song "Cause I Love You". The song reached the #6 position on the Billboard Hot 100.
The song is about Twista meeting a woman on the street and telling her about all the things he could do for her, while pointing out her features. He tells the woman he can make her a celebrity overnight. The song "Prototype" from Outkast is referenced in the song when Twista says "Dre told me you were the prototype". The video was directed by Erik White and features violinist Miri Ben-Ari (who played the strings in the record), model Miya Granatelli, Bishop Don "Magic" Juan and Chicago rappers Do or Die, Da Brat, Rip, White Boy, Crucial Conflict, and Bump J. While he raps the song's hook, Kanye West does not appear in the video.
On MTV, the phrase "Soul Train Awards" was censored, since it is a reference to a rival of sorts. Similarly, "MTV Awards" is censored on the BET version (even though MTV and BET are both owned by Viacom).
