When you put the hottest lyricists in the game on a couch across from MTV News’ Sway and get them to answer questions dreamed up by fans at home, anything can happen.
On “RapFix Live,” lyricists MCs announced record deals , busted out freestyles with Travis Barker and opened up about Twitter drama . So, a live, unedited fan-driven webcast with one of the pillars of the rowdy Gorilla Unit is sure to deliver a few “did that just really happen?” moments.
Queens spitter [artist id="1689514"]Tony Yayo[/artist] will drop by 1515 for this week’s show, which kicks off Thursday at a spankin’ new time, 4 p.m. ET. We’re cooking up some questions but we have no idea what nuggets of knowledge Yayo will drop. Will he unveil Lil B as the newest addition to the Unit? Will he reveal the best way to subdue an over-amped fan mid-bumrush? Will he disclose how Oprah the Dog came into her own Twitter account?
It’s up to the real Yayo fans to get online and decide what the lyricist will address, so tweet your questions to @mtvnews and @mtvrapfix, and find out the answers during the live stream. The last time MTV News caught up with Yayo, he revealed that he keeps an eclectic playlist on hand, bumping everything from J. Cole to Lady Gaga. The lyricist also opened up about collaborating with breakout Pack star Lil B on Yayo’s forthcoming mixtape.
“Lil B, I told you I’m feeling,” he told us. “I wanna start something new and get some artists under the wing. Lil B, Danny Brown is on the mixtape coming soon. [G-Unit member] New Money Trav. Trav knows Lil B. He has connections with Too Short. I got connections with E-40. They all end up coming to the show in the Bay. That’s how 50 [Cent] wound up doing the remix to [E-40's] ‘N—a Don’t Act Like a Bitch.’ They all ended up backstage. We had E-40 back there, Too Short, Lil Uno from the Pack. It was so many people back there. I linked up with Lil B. His music is good. He’s a real humble dude. That cooking dance is hot.”
