On Sunday, Swizz premiered his brand-new video for “Everyday Birthday” featuring Chris Brown and Ludacris. In the clip, each star ends up in a peculiar predicament after a hard night of partying in Cannes, France. You can expect Swizzy to dish on the hilarious video as well as his other ventures in the fashion and art worlds.
Game will be stopping by as well to talk about his upcoming December 11 Jesus Piece album. Last week, the West Coast rap wiz told MTV News that for his next LP, he looks to follow a formula made famous by his mentor Dr. Dre. “The thing about the Jesus Piece is, it’s kinda like a 2012 Chronic album, if you will,” Game said, referring to the large number of guests he plans to showcase on the LP. “I’m on it, and I’m on it a hell of a lot, but I got a lot of features.”
That’s not all: In the lead-up to his album release, the Documentary spitter has been dropping free music every week as a part of his Sunday Service series. His most recent track, “Holy Water,” was released Sunday and finds Game cautioning listeners against putting their faith in material objects. “Sleep outside for days, for a pair of J’s/ Then you sleep outside forever ’cause you got sprayed,” he raps, drawing attention to the violence that erupts when kids camp out for Air Jordans and other expensive kicks.
Saigon is no stranger to street violence either, but rather than glorify it, he has spent the better part of his career trying to reach troubled youth. On Tuesday, he will be dropping his second LP, The Greatest Story Never Told Chapter 2: Bread and Circuses. On Monday (November 5), Giddy dropped the music video for his new single “Blown Away.” The politically charged clip, directed by Nicolas Heller, eulogizes fallen figures like Martin Luther King Jr., Tupac Shakur and Huey P. Newton, adding to theories that they were murdered under dubious circumstances.
With a gang of guests and the latest hip-hop news, this week’s “RapFix Live” is one you won’t want to miss.
