Soulja Boy has been added to the cast of Love & HipHop LA.
According to TMZ, the rapper has been added to the cast in efforts to make the forthcoming VH1 reality show a little juicier. A source tells the news outlet that the show has been having a hard time creating story lines and that the cast involved just isn’t entertaining enough. The producers wanted to add another big name rapper to hopefully shake things up.
As previously reported, the Love & HipHop LA cast includes Ray J, Teairra Mari (Ray J’s ex-girlfriend, Princess Love, Morgan Hardman (Ray J’s assistant), Omarion, Apryl Jones (Omarion’s baby mama), Yung Berg, Yesi Ortiz and Miss Joie (Bow Wow’s baby mama).
A source close to Ray J, who is also the show’s executive producer, tells TMZ that the singer is thrilled about the new addition.
HipHollywood caught up with Yung Berg in June about the reality show, but the rapper/writer was rather coy when discussing what fans can expect. “I don’t know what’s going on, but ya’ll know I’m a character so stay tuned. I can’t confirm or not confirm anything, but I know they’re shooting.”
