“Love & Hip Hop: Atlanta” reality star Mimi Faust is making her first video debut in her ex-boyfriend Nikko’s “NY 2 LA” music video.
And even though their no longer together since the big blowout fight between Ariane, K. Michelle, Johnny Crome, Nikko and Mimi, after K. accused Johnny and Nikko of being “gay”…Nikko still managed to release the video.
Also, Johnny is addressing the many rumors about him being on the “Down Low.” Here’s what he had to say:
“First and foremost I want to say that I consider myself an artist. Im not just another rapper or MC. I’m a true artist who loves and respects the artform. My musical tastes range from Biggie to The Beatles. My goal is to work as hard as possible and leave a lasting mark on the spectrum of music and popular culture. However, I know that I will be linked to this video, era, and Love And Hip Hop Atlanta for better or worse. This is the first video that will actually expose me to a broader demographic. And it just so happens to appear on a key episode of Love And Hip Hop Atlanta season 2.
I want to focus solely on the music and the artform but lets briefly address the elephant in the room. K. Michelle accused me of being gay at the filming of this video and thats simply not true. I want to let it be known that I am not a hater or gay basher, and I will never spread that hate or negativity. I have some gay friends and a gay relative. And I will always respect and have love for them.
He then thanked Mimi and Vh1 for giving him the platform to show the world his skills:
“I want to thank Mimi Faust for being in our video. Her presence is what brought the VH1 crew out and gave it a platform. Her kindness and generosity is overwhelming. She gets a lot of flack for various reasons but after getting to know her I can testify that she is a very good woman and she deserves nothing but the best. Had a great time filming with her and I just want to say Thank You.
This is just the beginning, sky is the limit.”
