Epic AF: The 'Love & Hip Hop: Miami' Cast Is The Most Star-Studded Yet

Some major players joining the franchise.

Published August 28, 2017

Ratchet overdrive!

The Love & Hip Hop: Miami cast was announced, and we can safely predict this season is going to up the drama. Prepare yourself for baby mama drama, backstabbing, cheating and everyone trying to be the next Cardi B

The two biggest names joining the cast are Miami rap legends Trick Daddy and Trina. Lately, Trick Daddy has been more known for his love of cocaine (he claims he uses it to treat Lupus), and Trina has been dragging online haters, but we are sure their reality show story lines will be a robust hodgepodge of ratchetness. They are both known for their epic personalities, and Trina has never let go of her self-proclaimed title of being "da baddest b*tch."

Rapper Pleasure P, who was formerly in the group Pretty Ricky, is also joining the cast. P has had a relatively quiet career in the past few years, but he is a Florida native. His girlfriend, Shay Johnson, who first got started in reality television on Flavor of Love, will also join the show.

Gunplay is another Florida rapper who has a messy history. In 2012, he was charged with armed robbery — he allegedly held his accountant at gunpoint, but the accounant refused to testify, so the case was dismissed. Gunplay also has a swastika tattoo, which is not going to sit well in our "alt-right" cultural climate. In 2012, he said, "I came to Nazi that sh*t. I came to Hitler that m*therf*cker. Put all the fake m*therf*ckers in the gas chamber and gas your f*ck ass. That’s what I’m here to do." His current girlfriend, Keyara, will be on the show, along with his ex Miami Trip. (Yes, that is her name).

Other cast members include a bunch of unknown hip-hop and R&B artists trying to get a break: Amara La Negra, Veronica Vega, Steph Lecor and openly gay rapper (and Trina's cousin) Bobby Lytes.

This season will be all about Trick Daddy and Trina. The show will premiere in January.
