J. Cole intentionally pushed up the release date of his sophomore LP Born Sinner to coincide — and boldly compete with — Kanye West’s Yeezus, and one day after the album officially hits stores on June 18, the Roc Nation rapper will join us on “RapFix Live.”
Cole is doing things his way this time around, and on Wednesday, he’ll sit down with host Sway Calloway to explain how this road to release was different from the first time around.
He previewed the anticipated album for fans and media in New York City last week, asking them to plug into a pair of headphones and stream the album, after being unsatisfied with the listening sessions for Cole World: The Sideline Story. So what else is he switching up this time? Tune in at 4 p.m. ET on MTV Jams and MTV.com to find out.
Waka Flocka Flame will also be live in the studio this week to tease and later premiere his brand-new video for “50K (remix)” featuring T.I., which appears on his DuFlocka Rant: Halftime Show mixtape.
Though his name isn’t as familiar as Waka or Cole’s just yet, Chance the Rapper will pay what is likely to be the first of many visits to “RapFix Live.” The breakout star from Chicago dropped his game-changing Acid Rap mixtape in April, and now’s a pretty good time to get acquainted if you haven’t already.
Rapper 360 will also make an appearance on the show to close things out with a freestyle. With so much star power, you really can’t afford not to tune in.
Catch J. Cole, Waka Flocka Flame, Chance the Rapper and 360 on “RapFix Live” Wednesday at 4 p.m. ET on RapFix.MTV.com and on MTV Jams. Be sure to join the Twitter conversation using the hashtag #RapFixLive. Send your questions for the artists to @MTVRapFix!
