Say goodbye to Jim Jones and hello to Joe Budden.
VH1 brought back their beloved Love & Hip Hop New York series but the cast has been shaken up – a lot. Cast members from the past seasons (Chrissy Lampkin, Emily B, Kimbella Vanderhee, Jim Jones) have been replaced with new faces and new drama.
The familiar faces on the show include Yandy Smith, Erica Mena, Erica’s fiance and manager Rich Dollaz, and Olivia (also managed by Rich). The new faces are Yandy’s boo Mendeecees Harris, stylist Winter Ramos, shoe stylist Rashidah Ali (she looks familiar but I can’t think of where I’ve seen her face from), satellite radio personality Jen “The Pen” Bayer, Jen’s husband/rapper Consequence, rapper Joe Budden, Joe’s ex Tahiry and Joe’s “friend” Raqi Thunda (Tahiry thinks Joe cheated with her while they were together)>
The first episode of the season opens up right in the middle of Joe’s drama with his ex, Tahiry. We know Joe has a new boo (Kaylin Garcia) but he and Tahiry dated for 5 years. I won’t tell all of the episode, but let’s just say there is some drama. A LOT OF IT.
