Will You Be Watching Love & Hip Hop: Atlanta In June?
The urban reality shows just don’t seem to stop rolling in. With the ratchet Basketball Wives rolling to the finale, it’s time for Love & Hip Hop: Atlanta to invade our lives. Hopefully it won’t be stuffed full of brawling women making asses out of themselves. Ah, who are we fooling. You know good and damn well that it wouldn’t be on television if someone’s weave wasn’t being snatched out. That’s just the reality of the urban reality show. We’ll set our bar low when the show premieres on June 18th. One thing the show is lacking is star power (if you really want to call it that). While Love & Hip Hop gave us Jim Jones, Olivia and Somaya Reese, the Atlanta version’s biggest name is Lil Scrappy.
Yeah, that Lil Scrappy.
Check out the synopsis below.
“Among the main characters in this 10-episode series are Stevie J, a three-time Grammy Award-Winning producer who has worked with artists such as Diddy, Jay-Z and Mariah Carey, Stevie’s longtime girlfriend Mimi Faust, and a fiery up-and-coming Latina rapper named Joseline. There’s no shortage of drama with this strong-willed trio. Also featured are Lil Scrappy, best known for his 2006 smash hit, “Money in the Bank,” his girlfriend Erica Dixon, and his mother, a former hustler known as “Momma Dee.” The hometown hero, Atlanta rapper Rasheeda, is still searching for that big hit after years in the hip hop game, but she’s constantly at odds with her manager Kirk Frost – who also happens to be her husband. Rounding out the cast are the talented songbird K Michelle, and Trinidadian R&B singer Karlie Redd. Atlanta is the new frontier in entertainment, the Dirty South, where the opportunity to make it big in the rap game is always one hustle away. Centered in the heart of the South, these fiery ladies and gentlemen aren’t looking to lead the debutante life. With aspiring songbirds and rappers in the mix, the stakes are high as competition is fierce in both professional and personal arenas. Striving to leave their mark beyond the red clay of Georgia, hip hop’s southern princes and princesses are allowing nothing to stand between them and making it big in the game.”
