Memphis Bleek Appearing On ‘RapFix Live’

Who could forget the reign of Roc-A-Fella Records? With a roster that once boasted Beanie Sigel, Cam’ron and Kanye West in its heyday, it was Memphis Bleek who first emerged as the company’s second star, alongside Jay-Z. Now a 13-year rap veteran, the Coming of Age spitter is set to make his very first appearance on “RapFix Live” Wednesday at 4 p.m. ET on RapFix.MTV.com.

Catch Memphis Bleek and Benzino on “RapFix Live,” Wednesday at 4 p.m. ET on RapFix.MTV.com, and be sure to join the Twitter conversation using the hashtag #RapFixLive. Send your questions for the artists @MTVRapFix!

Bleek famously got his start making a key contribution to Jay-Z’s 1996 classic debut Reasonable Doubt. On the hustling ode “Coming of Age,” a then teenaged Bleek set up a bright feature that has resulted in four solo albums, including his platinum 2001 offering The Understanding. Though most of the Roc’s key players have since disbanded, Memph has maintained a close relationship with Hov while independently releasing his mixtapes in conjunction with his own Get Low record company. Bleek dropped his last tape Kush, Vol. 2 in June. Expect the well-traveled MC to hit the “RapFix” couch and talk with host Sway Calloway about his career highlights and what’s to come.

Bleek isn’t the only guest this week, “Love Hip Hop: Atlanta” star Benzino will also be stopping through. Benzino, who was once a member of the Boston rap group the Almighty RSO, has continually reinvented himself as a rapper and a publisher, once playing a key role in The Source magazine and now Hip-Hop Weekly. These days Zino is wearing his heart on his sleeve, as his relationship with up-and-coming singer Karlie Redd plays out on the new VH1 television series. You’re not going to want to miss it.
