It’s party time! “RapFix Live” is celebrating its one-year anniversary today at 4 p.m. on MTV.com with special guests Lloyd Banks, Trina, Maino and the Outlawz. That’s not all: Jim Jones, Juelz Santana and Freekey Zekey of the Diplomats will also grace the “RapFix Live” couch, as well as Consequence and Reek Da Villain.
Hosted by hip-hop aficionado and MTV News correspondent Sway Calloway, “RapFix Live” has earned its reputation as the ultimate destination for all things hip-hop — including exclusive interviews with Lil Wayne, Bad Meets Evil cohorts Eminem and Royce Da 5’9″, Dr. Dre, Wiz Khalifa and Amber Rose , the Game, Diddy and Beanie Sigel, among others — and has served up more than 7.4 million streams since its first episode.
“The ‘RapFix’ couch has been home to some of my most memorable and incomparable interviews this past year — and all with fans experiencing it live and interacting with us in real time via MTV.com and Twitter,” Sway said of the show’s first year. “From Wiz announcing his move to Atlantic Records to Lil’ Kim discussing her ongoing feud with Nicki Minaj, Ja Rule preparing to go to prison and Eminem and Royce Da 5’9″ giving us the exclusive to be on set with them, ‘RapFix’ has helped energize hip-hop fans everywhere, every week — and there’s only more to come.”
Aside from superstar guests and memorable moments, “RapFix Live” has become the premier destination for MCs to let off high-powered bars. In the week leading up to the special anniversary show, fans were able to vote on their favorite “RFL” moments and freestyles. The winners will be announced live on today’s show.
The show will also recap the biggest and most impactful cultural moments since the “RapFix” premiere. Pundits from XXL magazine, Rap Radar, AllHipHop.com and This Is 50 will join Sway and weigh in on the biggest stories of the year. Finally, five “Rap Fix Live” Get in the Game alums — Sean Rose, the Incomparable Shakespeare, Feev, Gerald Walker and the Boy Illinois — will all be in the studio for a freestyle cipher you don’t want to miss.
