Old Faces… And Drama Return With 10th Season Of “Love & Hip Hop: New York”
VH1 revealed Monday a first look trailer of Season 10 of “Love & Hip Hop: New York” which is scheduled to return to the network on December 16. Longtime fans of the show may be happy for the return of some old faces, like Tahiry Jose, who is coming back after taking several seasons off, as well as Mendeecees Harris, Yandy’s husband, who is set for release for prison in 2020. We can likely expect some old drama to rear its ugly head as the beefs between Chrissy and Yandy and Chrissy and Kimbella are clearly not dead. Check out the thirty second clip below:
Here’s a little more detail about what to expect:
Chrissy Lampkin returns to N.Y.C. to work on both her business endeavors and relationship with her longtime fiancé. In order to fully move forward, she realizes there are amends she must make with her past.
Remy Ma wants it all! She’s balancing motherhood, co-hosting “State of the Culture” with Joe Budden and is determined to finally drop her album. With Remy trying to juggle everything, Papoose has to step up for full-time daddy duty. Can this Black Love power couple prove that you can have both a successful career and family?
Erica Mena is back in N.Y.C. to plan her fairytale wedding to Safaree Samuels and prepare for the arrival of their first child. But when their past relationships with other cast members begin to interfere, will this couple be able to maintain their happily ever after?
Still picking up the pieces of their shattered relationship, Joe Budden and Cyn Santana struggle to move on but Joe’s past transgressions threaten their attempts to find peace.
Kimbella is holding it down as a single mom of four now that her husband Juelz Santana began his prison sentence. She is focused on keeping her family, and his music legacy, afloat while he’s away.
Yandy Smith-Harris’ business is booming since her days as an assistant, but will her path to success hit a roadblock with Chrissy’s return to the Big Apple? With her husband Mendeecees in prison for the last few years, Yandy is ready for their family to reunite, but will his homecoming tear apart the family she’s built?
Rich Dollaz, Tahiry Jose, Olivia Longott, Somaya Reece, Juju, Jonathan Fernandez are also set to appear this season, along with newcomers Phresher and Jennaske.
Whose return are you most excited to see?
VH1 kicks off the 10th season of its groundbreaking series “Love & Hip Hop: New York” on Monday, December 16 at 8:00pm ET/PT with back-to-back episodes. Will you be watching?
Jim Jones Responds To BOSSIP’s Report His Mansion Was Foreclosed
Jim Jones has been in the headlines consistently over the past few weeks. The main reason was due to wiretapped audio of him, which was unveiled in the Tekashi 6ix9ine trial–which brought him right into the hot seat that is social media.
While the rest of the world couldn’t believe Jimmy was telling people to violate 6ix9ine, your friendly neighborhood BOSSIP staff exclusively reported that Jim’s New Jersey mansion slipped into foreclosure and was sold for just $100. Usually, when this sort of thing happens, rappers never address it or even try to play it off as if it’s some smart business play that only makes sense to rich people. If you could afford to pay a bill, it makes sense to pay it regardless of the fine print attached to the ordeal–but hey, what do us regular folks know about rich people problems?
With all the attention on him, Jim couldn’t pass up on the chance to get an interview on a big platform to promote his current ventures and the things he has going on. This week, he stopped by Power 105.1’s The Breakfast Club to talk with DJ Envy and Angela Yee.
During the interview, the rapper dodged all questions or hints to his involvement with the 6ix9ine case. However, he did address the foreclosing of his mansion and played it off as he’s “broke” and doing so bad that he got sent to “rich people’s jail” which he referred to as “a mini-mansion.” When he decided to be serious about the reports, he chalked it all up to a smart business decision, because he has several properties and he owes more than what it’s worth on that particular one.
If you’re wondering why he would even get the house in the first place for that same reason…don’t worry, we are too. Someone who owns multiple properties and flexes that as knowing real estate would know how to sell the house and make some money but it looks like that just isn’t the case here.
You can watch Jim fumble through explaining the situation below at the 7:38 minute mark.

Hip-hop legends Jim Jones, Cam’ron and Freekey Zekey had a Dipset reunion at celebrity jeweler Alex Todd’s 40th birthday party alongside rapper Slick Rick at Space 54 in New York City, where they celebrated Todd and the success of his luxury cannabis brand, Saucey Farms and Extracts.
One of Hip-Hop’s longstanding couples might be bringing their love back to television. Chrissy and Jim Jones are reportedly in talks to return to “Love & Hip Hop.” The rumor comes from a source who tells BOSSIP that the original LHHNY cast members have signed up for season 10.
Not only that but their ex-friend Yandy Smith will also be back as well as Kimbella who Chrissy previously had a physical altercation with over Emily B.
Rumors are also swirling that Emily B herself will be back—-as well as (surprise, surprise) Erica Mena and Safaree whose coupledom will reportedly cause friction with Joe Budden (ex-fiance of Erica’s ex Cyn Santana) and Erica’s ex Rich Dollaz.
Seen On The Scene: Lil Uzi, Jim Jones, Pink Sweat$ & More At Made In America Festival

This year at MADE IN AMERICA, celebrities including Lil Uzi Vert, Ben Simmons, Jim Jones, Pink Sweat$ were spotted sipping D’USSE and vibing at the D’USSE Riser as festival performers hit the stage. Additional artists such as Freddie Gibbs, Freeway, Buddy the Rapper, Channel Tres, 99 Neighbors, Phantoms and more were all in attendance. Hit the flip for some photos from the fun-filled night in Philly.
Jay-Zalways knows what to do to get people talking all while pushing the culture forward. The Brooklyn legend made New York’s Webster Hall great again for the venue’s reopening by performing one of his “B-sides” set with an intimate show. But it wouldn’t be a Hov show without some special guests in the building. Nas hit the stage with Jay to perform their 2007 track “Success” followed by the classic “Dead Presidents”, then the Queens legend closed out their set with “New York State of Mind”.
One of the biggest surprises of the night was Jay brought out former nemesis Cam’ron to perform their 2002 collab “Welcome to New York City.” The audience went wild seeing the semi Roc-A-fella reunion, and ish got crazier once Jim Jones joined them on stage to perform “I Really Mean It.”
A standout moment from the classic performance was Hov’s tribute to the late, great Nipsey Hussle. He freestyled:
“Gentrify your own hood before these people do it. Claim eminent domain and have your people move in. That’s a small glimpse into what Nipsey was doing. For anybody still confused as to what he was doing.”
Jay’s “B-Sides 2” set is Webster Hall’s first show since it closed down for renovation in August 2017. Shout out to Hov for bringing the culture back to NYC in such a dope way.
According to TMZ, Jim Jones was able to avoid jail time in his Georgia gun and drug case after copping a plea deal.
According to court records, Jones was sentenced to a slight 2 years probation and a $1,500 fine(plus minor court costs). That’s considerably lower than what he would have gotten had the charges stuck.
Three of the six charges were reportedly dropped, including a felony drug charge and 2 felony counts of possession of a firearm. The other three charges will go away if he stays out of trouble while on probation, according to the stipulations of the plea.
Jimmy reportedly only has to stay away from alcohol and drugs for the next couple years and report to his probation officer in GA to get the remaining three charges dropped from his record.
