Despite Chrissy Lampkin, Somaya Reece, Emily B, (who left the show) and Kimbella Vanderhee (who was rumored to have exited the show)… Vh1 has released the names of its official “Love & Hip Hop: New York” cast.
Check out the full list below:
Entrepreneur, former manager of Jim Jones and returning cast member Yandy Smith.
Model Erica Mena and Olivia’s manager Rich Dollaz who are both returning cast members were spotted in New York City today shooting the new season of the show.
Newbie and controversial rapper Joe Budden
R&B singer and returning cast member Olivia Longott
Newbie and shoe consultant Rashidah Ali
Newbie and radio personality Raqi Thunda, who apparently also dated Joe Budden. Mona sure knows how to pick them!
Newbie and NYC rapper Consequence, who has been dating one of the new castmate, Jen Bayer, for over 5 years and has 1 year-old child. Plus he has worked with the likes of Kanye West and a few other artist in the past.
However, Consequence has never been one to bite his tongue as evidenced by his outspoken interviews recently during his beef with Kanye and his cousin/Tribe Called Quest frontman Q-Tip (right above). This should be very interesting.

Even-though the cast doesn’t sound that exciting, when you remember that nobody knew who Joseline, Stevie, Mimi, or any of the other Atlanta cast were two months ago, and now we can’t get enough of them, so we’ll probably be addicted to these unknowns in a few months.
