This week’s episode of “RapFix Live” will be a memorable one with appearances from California rap veteran Too $hort and Cash Money rapper Bow Wow. Too $hort will appear on Wednesday’s show to chop it up with Sway about his upcoming album No Trespassing (his 19th solo LP!) while Bow Wow will chat about his own career evolution.
Bow Wow, now 24 years old, got his start in 2000 at the age of 13. Since then, the Ohio rap representative has grown from kiddie rapper to full-grown MC and amassed a gang of hits along the way. His upcoming album Underrated will mark Bow’s first release on Cash Money Records since signing with the powerhouse label in 2009.
Speaking of power moves, 2 Chainz will also appear on Wednesday’s show to make a very special announcement concerning the next phase of his career. The Atlanta rap phenom made a name for himself as one-half of Playaz Circle, the group known best for their 2007 rap hit “Duffle Bag Boy” with Lil Wayne. He went by the name Tity Boy back then, but after a name change and a string of underground bangers, 2 Chainz has built a deafening buzz. His latest single, “Spend It,” spread like wildfire and has recently spawned an official remix and music video with T.I.
