For years now, there have been rumors that the creators of “Love & Hip Hop” were expanding their franchise down to the sunny, sandy beaches of Miami, and those rumors are finally coming true.
According to one of Miami’s most famous rappers, Trick Daddy, he and LHH creator Mona Scott Young have been steadily working on curating a hot new cast for the latest edition of the franchise.
Fans are already obsessed with the New York, Hollywood and Atlanta series to come from the VH1 reality TV show, and Trick claims the Miami cast will bring just as much drama and entertainment to the LHH empire.
He said during an interview with Bossip,
“I just met with Mona last week and we’re trying to do this thing right,” Trick told us. “Put some real Miami b***hes and real Miami n***as on the show.”
Trick, real name Maurice Young, said he’ll start filming at the end of the month or early May, and one of his storylines will involve him managing two upcoming artists Premadonna and Mike Smith. Premadonna’s husband is also trying to sign Trick to his own label.
“It’s all gonna come out on the show,” he said. “We’re just trying to do what we do, do what I do.”
Trick – who has already dabbled in TV work with his own spice infomercial and cooking show – said he decided to go the reality TV route because the show would give him a chance to share his unique take on life and contrast the lifestyles of Miami’s old guard with it’s new moneyed residents.
“I’m really doing Love & Hip Hop Miami because there’s a difference between Old Cutler (a sleepy highway that connects Miami to the Everglades) money and South Beach money,” he said. “Old Cutler money is grandfathered in, South Beach is investors.”
And the rapper promised not to crash and burn once he’s on TV.
“One thing I won’t do is make a fool of myself,” Trick said. “If we gone make a fool of somebody it won’t be me, so it’ll be interesting.”
The “Diamond Princess” never confirmed joining reality TV. However, The Shade Room recently reported the self proclaimed “Baddest B***h” will be featured on the upcoming series.
We would definitely love to see Trick and Trina reunited for reality cameras, so here’s to hoping LHHM will be premiering sooner rather than later.
