RFLpromo

Schoolboy Q is getting ready to drop his third album Oxymoron on February 25 (see: the new video for “Man of the Year“) and he’ll be joining us in the “RapFix Live” studio today to tease the project. Joey Bada$ $ and his Brooklyn-based Pro Era crew are also prepping The Secc$ Tape 2 mixtape for release on Valentine’s Day and they’re rolling deep on today’s episode. The cypher is sure to get out of hand.

What Does Schoolboy Q’s Closet Look Like?


Describing Schoolboy Q’s style as “laid back” is a bit of an understatement, since the TDE rapper doesn’t usually look like he’s put too much effort into his outfit of the day (unless you’re considering his extensive selection of bucket hats, of course). So, when he dropped by “RapFix Live” on Wednesday we quizzed him about his upcoming album Oxymoron, then inquired about the state of his closet. Apparently, there are actually hangers for the designer pieces. Hit the video above, around the 40 second mark to hear him explain.

Savemoney ‘Still Alive’ And Kickin’ In New Video


At this point we hope that you’re familiar with the Savemoney movement brewing out in Chicago. Chance the Rapper and Vic Mensa have been shining the light on their squad with Acid Rap and Innanetape, but there’s still plenty of talent left to showoff in the crew. The new video for “Still Alive” is proof. The visuals feature Joey Purp and Kami de Chukwu (with plenty of guest appearances from Chance, Vic, producers Thelonius Martin and Stix, etc) and the back story is a pretty interesting one too.

Apparently the clip was originally scheduled to drop in 2013, but that was held up thanks to a robbery at gunpoint during the shoot. Yikes. All is well now, though. Check it out above.

Watch Pro Era Shut Down ‘RapFix Live’ Cypher

Get To Know Andy Mineo


Andy Mineo knows exactly who he is. As an MC, the Syracuse, New York, native is as skilled as any of today’s crop of rap newcomers — and he proved it in December on the “RapFix Live” all-cypher show, where he rhymed alongside 360, Bizzy Crook and Emilio Rojas. There is a difference between Mineo and most of his rap contemporaries, though; if you listen closely, his bars are inspired chiefly by his Christian faith. Ask his fans, and you’ll find that’s all a part of his appeal. Hear him explain a dream collab in the video above and read the full story at MTV News.

Rockie Fresh Joining G-Eazy On ‘These Things Happen’ Tour

tourflyer

By Sowmya Krishnamurthy

The “James Dean of hip-hop” joins forces with Maybach Music Group. G-Eazy is enlisting Rockie Fresh as part of his upcoming “These Things Happen Tour,” RapFix has exclusively learned. The MMG newcomer has been named as the tour’s opening act along with Toronto rapper Tory Lanez and California native Kyle.

The Buzz On: G-Eazy

As a musical accompaniment to this tour announcement, G-Eazy recently unleashed a remix to “Been On” featuring Rockie and Tory Lanez.

The 40-date “These Things Happen Tour” kicks off February 21 in Dallas and continues with stops in New York City, Chicago, Atlanta, Los Angeles, San Francisco and Toronto.

G-Eazy is prepping to release a new album, the follow-up to 2012′s Must Be Nice, called These Things Happen, this spring. The effort comes on the heels of a string of big wins for the Oakland rapper including opening up for Drake’s “Light Dreams and Nightmares” tour in 2010 and jumping on Lil Wayne’s “America’s Most Wanted Tour” in 2013.

Eazy spoke to Respect last year about his artistic goal of always bettering himself. “That’s the motto that I want to take after: never getting too comfortable in one spot. You want to keep pushing things forward and wanting to keep trying new things and keep getting better.”
