On Tuesday (May 1), Bobby Ray released his sophomore LP, Strange Clouds, and on Wednesday, he will appear on “RFL” to talk about his journey thus far. “This next album is like a culmination of everything combined, and I feel like that’s really why I’m so excited about it and eager to put it out because I’m just ready to get back on the court with it,” B.o.B told MTV News of his second album months before it dropped.
It was the Lil Wayne-assisted title track that served as the first single fromStrange Clouds, but before he released his Adventures of Bobby Rayfollow-up, Bob dropped another single, the sing-songy “So Good.” The catchy love song has already cracked the top 20 on the Billboard Hot 100. The album, which was released on T.I.’s Grand Hustle record label, features not only Tip, but also Chris Brown, Taylor Swift and Nicki Minaj.
Bobby Ray isn’t the only rap star who will be holding court on “RapFix” this week: Mobb Deep’s Prodigy will be making his way to the red couch to give Sway the latest Mobb updates and to debut his brand-new single live on the show.
Things got a little rocky for Mobb Deep after reports of a rift between the group surfaced thanks to some pretty harsh tweets sent from Havoc’s account. All the drama has since been cleared up; the troubling tweets were sent after Hav lost his phone at a gas station and a prankster gained access to his social-networking passwords. Rather than run from the drama, Prodigy said he plans to use the negative publicity to his advantage. So, with a new project in the works, the H.N.I.C. is ready to take the next step in his infamous career.
If that isn’t enough, host Sway will take you behind the scenes on two major hip-hop videos. First, we have an exclusive sneak peek of DJ Khaled’s “Take It to the Head” video featuring Rick Ross, Lil Wayne, Nicki Minaj and Chris Brown. Then we will also roll out clips detailing the making of Nas’ latest video “The Don.” You’re not going to want to miss this.
Catch B.o.B, Prodigy and DJ Khaled on “RapFix Live” on 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!
