Now that MTV News' fiery Hottest MCs in the Game roundtable debate is complete, it's time to slow things down just a little bit on this week's "RapFix Live."
Whether behind the scenes or out front, The-Dream knows how to craft a hit record. As a songwriter and producer, the Atlanta-based musician has written humongous hits for Beyoncé, Rihanna and Britney Spears; as a singer he's given us "Shawty Is a 10," "Rockin' That Sh--" and "Walkin' on the Moon" featuring Kanye West. On Wednesday, The-Dream will bring all his collective talents to "RapFix Live" as he sits with Sway to speak on his musical exploits and his life outside the studio.
There's no telling what The-Dream will say about his part in Rihanna's "Birthday Cake" remix. On Tuesday, the Bajan pop star released a controversial reworked version of her Talk That Talk track, which The-Dream co-produced, featuring ex-beau Chris Brown.
The-Dream is no stranger to controversy, and in 2010, he and wife Christina Milian separated around the same time questionable photos of The-Dream and his assistant leaked online.
Musically, however, there aren't many questions surrounding The-Dream. His 2011 1977 mixtape was critically acclaimed, and his new single "ROC" is setting the table for his upcoming fourth album.
This week's "RapFix Live" will also feature a new Get in the Game artist, Week in Rotation segment and, of course, the latest in hip-hop news.
