RapFix Live won’t be the same. To celebrate our month long stunt acknowledging five of hip-hop’s top MCs on the rise, MTV News in partnership with our colleagues over at MTV JAMS bring you the RapFix Live Fab 5 edition. In the past JAMS spotlighted now heavyweight MCs such as Drake, Juelz Santana and Young Jeezy who were just newbies to the rap game. This year’s class of MCs features Philly spitter Meek Mill, Pittsburgh newcomer Mac Miller, Atlanta’s rookie of the year Future, promising rapper Big K.R.I.T. and G.O.O.D. Music’s breakout star, Big Sean.
Tomorrow during a special edition of RapFix Live all of the highlighted artists will individually make a guest appearance during our show. Our RapFix Live Fab 5 program marks the first time the entire collective will be featured together at the same time. We’ll be taking your tweets for the artists to answer live on air so let the games begin.
Conceived in 2005 on MTV Jams, the Fab 5 is a collection of the most outstanding new hip-hop artists of the year who have made a visible impact on the road to releasing their debut albums. Fab 5 alumni include Juelz Santana, Tony Yayo, Paul Wall, Young Jeezy, Kid Cudi and Drake.
