(Young Jeezy bringing ‘Hustlerz Ambition’ to ‘RapFix Live’)
On December 20, Young Jeezy will finally drop his highly anticipated fourth album, Thug Motivation: 103 Hustlerz Ambition, but before that, the Snowman will chop it up with Sway on “RapFix Live” this Wednesday (November 30) at 4 p.m. In addition to sharing details on the album itself, Jeezy will premiere an exclusive clip from the LP’s accompanying film.
The album boasts appearances from Lil Wayne, T.I., Jill Scott, Snoop Dogg and Devin the Dude. Last week, “I Do,” a tongue-in-cheek love song featuring Jay-Z and Andre 3000, hit the Net to rave reviews. On it, Jeezy professes his love for hustling, while Jay cleverly raps about his marriage to the streets, though at times sounds like he is dedicating his bars to wifey Beyoncé.
This week’s edition of “RapFix Live” will also celebrate MTV2’s upcoming Sucker Free Awards, as well the return of “Yo! MTV Raps,” with a special episode dubbed “Classic Cuts.” Both shows will premiere on MTV2 on December 4, and “RapFix Live” has exclusive behind-the-scenes looks.
Held at Miami’s Club LIV, the Sucker Free Awards will celebrate the year in hip-hop, giving out statues for Best Crew of 2011, Rookie of the Year and the Must-Follow Person of 2011. Rick Ross, Meek Mill, DJ Khaled, Red Café and Ace Hood were all on hand as well as Birdman and his YMCMB family.
“Yo! MTV Raps: Classic Cuts” will profile three artists and their classic tracks: A Tribe Called Quest’s “Scenario,” Geto Boys’ “My Mind’s Playing Tricks on Me,” and Ice Cube’s “It Was a Good Day.”
The special will feature discussions from former hosts Fab 5 Freddy, Ed Lover and Dr. Dre, as well as some of rap’s generational heavyweights. The special will explore the way each song revolutionized the genre and impacted generations to come. In addition to the three classic cuts, the special will also feature a long list of current hip-hop artists from Common to Wiz Khalifa and Fat Joe.
