“The RapFix couch has been home to some of my most memorable and incomparable interviews this past year – and all with fans experiencing it live and interacting with us in real time via MTV.com and Twitter,” said MTV News Correspondent Sway Calloway. “From Wiz announcing his move to Atlantic Records to Lil Kim discussing her ongoing feud with Nicki Minaj, Ja Rule preparing to go to prison and Eminem and Royce Da 5’9 giving us the exclusive to be on-set with them, RapFix has helped energize hip-hop fans everywhere, every week – and there’s only more to come.”
In addition, the RapFix Live special celebration will feature the “Best Moments in RapFix Live” and “Best Freestyles in RapFix Live” as voted on by the fans.
