Mark my words…one day Mona Scott-Young is going to take over the world. How else can it be explained that the Love & Hip Hop franchise remains so popular? The messier it gets, the more people want to watch–myself included! The woman is an evil genius, I tell you!
As fans of the VH1 train wrecks (yes, plural) are well aware, the casts of both New York and Atlanta are virtual revolving doors of ratchetness. I don't know why some hip hop artists would choose to become famous for their drama as opposed to their talent, but it seems like a pretty regular occurrence with these folks!

Despite the craziness that surrounds the cast of used-pregnancy-test-throwing, hair-pulling, baby-mama-drama, screaming, two-timing, nudie-picture-leaking yahoos that comprise both the original hit and Love & Hip Hop Atlanta, new people are always anxious to add their name to the insanity.
Now, according to Atlanta hip hop station Hot 107.9, both franchises will be getting new faces. Make his L&HH New York debut will be Chi-Ali of the early '90's hip hop group the Native Tongues. Chi-Ali starred in a television movie called Strapped in 1993 before going on to murder the brother of a girl he was dating in 2000. He managed to evade capture for about a year, and was even featured on America's Most Wanted, before being arrested in 2001. He served 12 years and has luckily resurfaced just in time to be featured on the upcoming season. Seriously. Congratulations on your felony conviction! Let's make you a reality star! Peter Gunz had better watch his back!
As for Atlanta, that franchise is pulling out all of the stops with Yung Joc whose heyday encompassed the mid-2000's with multi-million dollar record deals and hit singles. What's ol' Joc up to now? He's now dating Karlie Redd, so I totally think this is her way to get more air time. She got all of 4 minutes or so last season!
These shows are never going to go away. Y'all realize that, right?
