Oh VH1, how I love thee.

“Love & Hip Hop” may be giving the ATL a break but I am expecting great things from New York. And when I say “great” I mean ratchet. So far, from the cast alone, I feel like my chances for an eventful season are high. The trailer for the highly anticipated show hit the Internet today and already I am too excited to hate on Erica Mena and Rich Dollaz “relationship” and interested in hearing more of Joe Budden’s story after seeing him cry in the short clip.

Be prepared for the new season which airs January 7th on VH1 at

More about the cast:

Yandy Smith and boyfriend Mendeecees Harris, Olivia, Rich Dollaz and Erica Mena have returned but bring with them: rapper Joe Budden, his ex-girlfriend/ video vixen Tahiry, Raqi Thunda (alleged friend of Joe Budden), rapper Consequence, gossip maven Jen “The Pen” Bayer, Fabolous’ former assistant Winter Ramos and celebrity shoe consultant Rashidah Ali. Mona Scott-Young, who created “Love & Hip Hop,” is also back as executive producer, reports The Sacramento Bee.
