Last week, "RapFix Live" kicked off 2012 in grand fashion. Not only did Maino take over the red couch to give us his predictions for the next month (hint: he, Katy Perry and Rihanna fall into a love triangle), but Virginia rapper Skillz also came through to perform his "2011 Rap Up." This week, Yo Gotti will swing through and fill Sway in on his long-awaited major-label debut, Live From the Kitchen
The Memphis spitter has reigned as one of rap's most exciting underground artists thanks to his Cocaine Muzik mixtape series. And he's also notched a few hits on his belt, including the 2009 club banger "5 Star" featuring Gucci Mane, Trina and an up-and-coming Nicki Minaj. The song would go on to peak at #11 on the Billboard Hot Rap Songs chart. Even though label drama led to album delay, Gotti continued to make hits. Next up was "Woman Lie, Men Lie" with Lil Wayne, then "For the Hood" with Gucci Mane and 2011's sing-songy "We Can Get it On."
If Yo Gotti weren't enough, Brooklyn MC Saigon will also stop by "RapFix Live" on Wednesday. Giddy made a serious impact in 2011 when he finally dropped his critically acclaimed debut album, The Greatest Story Never Told. On Monday (January 9), Sai premiered his OutKast-sampling track, "I Am 4 Real," on MTV's RapFix blog. "I Am 4 Real" is the first track off of Sai's upcoming Warning Shots 3: One Foot in the Grave mixtape.
