Love and Hip-Hop: New York is officially back in full swing and it’s filled with new people! Widely discussed this season is the inclusion of Joe Budden and Tahiry on the show. The Loose Quarter rapper made headlines earlier this year, when his mixtape dropped and he let loose some questionable remarks about his ex-girlfriend Tahiry. Look for some drama there…
Also on the show is former G.O.O.D. Music rapper Consequence, who made headlines dissing Kanye West, the man widely recognized for giving him his start. Yandy, Olivia and Erica are still on the show, but Erica is dating Rich Dollaz, which should be entertaining. While we already told you Joe Budden and Tahiry, we neglected to add that his new girlfriend Kaylin will also make an appearance!
Check out the run-down below:
Raqi Thunda– Radio personality and DJ Raqi Thunda has no problem keeping it real. Raqi and Joe Budden insist they are just long-time friends. However, Raqi and Joe’s ex, Tahiry don’t see eye-to-eye and have a tumultuous relationship.
Consequence- NYC rapper Consequence has established a successful career working with the likes of Kanye West and A Tribe Called Quest.
