Please wipe your feet at the door, because on Wednesday, “RapFix Live” will be welcoming Royce Da 5’9″, Joell Ortiz, Joe Budden and Crooked I to our house.
Slaughterhouse will be joining host Sway Calloway on the new “RapFix” set this week to talk about their upcoming major-label debut, Welcome to: Our House , their impeccable chemistry and what it was like working with Eminem in the studio.
“There are records where those core Slaughterhouse fans will get their ’Oohs and ahs’ like, ’OK, the pen is pushing,’ ” Ortiz told MTV News about Our House back in May. “It’s themed, but we take you on a ride through this album. Y’all gonna enjoy it.”
That’s not all: Mobb Deep’s Prodigy will also be stopping by for some time on the red couch. It was 2000 when P released his critically acclaimed solo debut, H.N.I.C., and now, 12 years later, he has completed the trilogy with his recently released H.N.I.C. 3. The album, which was released on Mobb Deep’s own Infamous Records, features Wiz Khalifa and Prodigy’s M-O-B-B partner Havoc as well as production from the Alchemist.
During his May “RapFix” appearance, Prodigy said most of the material for H.N.I.C. 3 was written during his three-year incarceration stemming from a 2006 gun arrest. “The third one, I spent a lot of time working on it. I did my little bid, three years or whatever, and that’s basically when I was writing most of this album,” Prodigy explained. “So, I got to really take my time with the concepts, the lyrics, how I want it to be, be really precise with it and really come up with something that can last a long time.”
Catch Slaughterhouse and Prodigy on “RapFix Live,” Wednesday at 4 p.m. ET on MTV.com, and be sure to join the Twitter conversation using the hashtag #RapFixLive. Send your questions for the artists @MTVRapFix!
