New (York) cast of ‘Love and Hip Hop’

Just when you were getting use to #LHHATL (Stevie J-isms and Joseline), the NYC team was gearing up for their 2013 début. Third time’s a charm. With that said, here’s the new lineup:


Joe Budden

From his timeline to mixtapes, he’s known for firing shots–mainly at ex girlfriends. Loose Quarter made headlines for the very same reason. Recently, he kicked a “fan” (@PaigeS) out of a Oakland concert because she went in on him via Twitter (Diep, 2012). Him mad? Since he initiates drama and holds grudges, wonder how he’ll handle his ex (Tahiry) and current girlfriend (Kaylin) meeting… referee or contender?


Tahiry Jose

Not only has Budden’s rants brought her attention, but her ass-ets have garnered attention on their own. I’ve heard she has “rapid-fire sarcasm”… Bartender-turned-model, she’s avoiding the assumed fate for vixens. Putting Dominican Republicans ‘back’ on the map, she ranked third on Big Sean’s “favorite women” list. He didn’t speak to her at a concert, but he recognized her mASSive appeal.

Earlier this year, an evening with Knicks guard, J.R. Smith, led to a post that he later regretted. What was thought of as good fun (a ‘back-shot’ photo of her?), took “away from [the] team”… Uh, yeah. The NBA sure did take their $25,000, and you know Joe probably had something to say about it. Smh



Cousin of rapper Q-Tip (A Tribe Called Quest) and former G.O.O.D. Music artist, the Queens-native will probably make waves. In 2005, he signed on Kanye’s G.O.O.D. side, although he was on it through Columbia Records? In 2011, he was over it. He wasn’t in the G.O.O.D. Music XXL feature (Kanye was guest editor… ouch); excluded from G.O.O.D. Music’s BETCipher; album was held up; and he didn’t receive credit for his work (ouch). Yeah, I’d be mad too. Anyhoo, arguments with Jen Bayer about their son (Caiden) may occupy all of his camera time…


Jen “The Pen” Bayer

When she’s not raising one year-old son, Caiden, she’s penning and pushing gossip for The Hot Boyz (Chicago) and DJ Whoo Kid.

  • Winter Ramos. Former assistant (to Fabulous) wants to tell-all of her famous “friends” in the music industry. The Creative Costume Designer for Flavor Unit Films made a brief appearance in the second season, and coming back for more.
  • Rashidah Ali. (As if one ‘Rasheeda’ wasn’t enough). The “shoe consultant to the stars” is preparing to launch Encore, her shoe line.
  • Raqi Thunda. A “long-time friend” to Budden, the radio personality and Tahiry didn’t agree to those terms.

Monami Entertainment is pushing out the programs! The ‘scripts’ are addictive. You’d love to see us all get along, but you hate to miss a show. New York is a city filled with “shattered dreams”, successes, and definitely secrets. Add some heartache, heated arguments, and a hunter’s mentality… Love & Hip Hop NYCpremieres January 7th at 8 p.m. on VH1.

  • Will you be watching?
  • How will it measure up to the original NYC / NJ cast? ATL?
