Have you ever wanted to ask [artist id="2000082"]Rick Ross[/artist] exactly what type of cream he uses to shave his head? Or maybe, how he keeps that signature beard so thick and well-groomed? Have you ever wanted to chat him up about his favorite pair of vintage Cazal sunglasses? Perhaps you have some real questions about how he parlayed his laid-back flow and easy cool to become one of the hardest lyricists in the game. On Friday at 1 p.m. ET, fans will have the chance ask Ross all of their questions directly during the first-ever edition of “RapFix Live,” a live-stream series.
Ross will take questions instantly from a live Twitter feed and fans will be able to watch an unedited, real-time interview with the hip-hop heavyweight. The discussion will be moderated by MTV News’ Sway, but the conversation is really in the hands of the fans. In addition to the live-stream series, hip-hop fans will be able to satisfy all of their music needs with the official launch of MTV’s RapFix blog, at RapFix.MTV.com, on August 2.
Ross has already established himself as a major Web force with mixtapes like his The Albert Anastasia EP, which is packed with street hits, including “Blowin’ Money Fast (B.M.F.)” and “MC Hammer.” And earlier this year, Ross told MTV News that he always keeps his Net following in mind and would continue to create his popular online-only videos saying, “You know we’ll never stop releasing those black-and-whites, those virals.”
With the “RapFix Live” stream, Ross fans, whose main access to the star was via those black-and-white visuals and lyrically potent mixtapes, can chop it up with the MC in a very accessible yet unique viral capacity. The Ross event will kick off a new series of live streams featuring some of the biggest artists in hip-hop today. Hip-hop heads will have the opportunity to have live conversations with the rappers who are changing the game.
