Casting For Love & Hip Hop Atlanta Finalized, New Season Starts in June

The cast for the spin-off Love & Hip Hop series will include Lil Scrappy and his girlfriend Erica Dixon, singer K. Michelle, rapper Rasheeda, music producer Stevie J, and new artists Joseline and Karlie Redd.

After two seasons in New York City with Kimbella Vanderhee, Yandy Smith, Olivia Longott, Somaya Reece, Emily Bustamante, and Chrissy Lampkin, the show shifts to the southern Hip Hop capitol of Atlanta.

“Love & Hip Hop: Atlanta is a tale of struggle, love, and temptation with a southern twist. 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,” reports VH1. “Competition is fierce in both the professional and personal arenas — they love hard but leave even harder.”

Love & Hip Hop: Atlanta is scheduled to premiere on VH1 Monday, June 18 at 8pm EST.
