Stepping into the ATL Twins’ hotel room looks exactly how we imagined: We first find the inseparable Sidney and Thurman Sewell wearing matching white bathrobes and lounging in bed with a bottle of Grey Goose in arm’s reach and a brunette babe in-between them. She’s nonchalantly reapplying her lipstick in a compact mirror, generously offering the two deep muscle back rubs in-between her taking naps. The Twins are chain-smoking, stopping only to form fat lines of cocaine and snort them with a rolled up, hundred dollar bill.

In-between the pre-gaming, the twins tell us about their passion for art, a passion that came to fruition recently when an exhibition of childhood-inspired work showed at Harif Guzman’s Wooster Street Gallery last fall. Our attempts to probe at more raunchy stories throughout the night are practically useless, as the Twins always find ways to shift the conversation toward discussing their creative collaborations. The paintings they show me like proud parents are nightmarish recreations of illustrations they drew as kids. They’re actually quite impressive -- one piece even sold for $10,000.

The two also reveal they’ve been archiving iPhone footage from recent years to eventually release a full-length, lo-fi film. They play me a few gritty clips, including a hardcore porn they shot -- and starred in -- with our former PAPER cover girl, rapper Brooke Candy. Another video shows Cara Delevingne wildly dancing on the set of Die Antwoord’s “Ugly Boy” music video and a third features Marilyn Manson painting the Twins’ faces purple in his Los Angeles kitchen.

After we watch the videos, a few close friends eventually join the Twins, including Atlanta rappers Curtis Williams and Jace of rising hip-hop crew Two-9. After the pack restocks on cocaine and the Twins thoroughly brush their gleaming gold grills, we all head to Up&Down in the West Village for an evening that lasts far beyond sunrise. Take a look at photos by Rebecca Smeyne and read more about what the Twins have to say about sex, drugs and art, below.
