VH1 is bringing a Southern-fried tale of struggle, love and temptation to Atlanta with a new season of “Love and Hip Hop.” “Love and Hip Hop: Atlanta” proves love, music and the game know no boundaries. As the newest installment in the successful “Love and Hip Hop” franchise, “Love and Hip Hop: Atlanta” will feature a new cast with their eyes on the prize of fortune, fame and family. 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 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.
“Love and Hip Hop Atlanta” season 3, episode 1 airs May 5 at 8 p.m. EDT on VH1. Preview below:
