Love & Hip Hop is a media franchise that consists of several reality television series broadcast on VH1. The shows document the personal and professional lives of several hip hop and R&B musicians, performers, managers, and record producers residing in varying regions throughout the United States. The original franchise version, Love & Hip Hop: New York, premiered on March 6, 2011. Its success resulted in spin-offs located in Atlanta, Hollywood, and Miami.

The series is known for its sprawling ensemble cast, with over 200 cast members. Many are notable figures in East Coast, West Coast and Southern hip hop, including Jim Jones, Remy Ma, Soulja Boy, Waka Flocka Flame, Lil Scrappy, Trina and Trick Daddy, as well as R&B artists like Ray J, Keyshia Cole and Stevie J. The franchise is also known for launching the careers of previously unknown artists, including Joseline Hernandez, K. Michelle and Cardi B.[1]

The franchise has generated controversy since its inception, and is often criticised for tending towards a narrative format more commonly seen in scripted genres such as soap operas, and appearing to fabricate much of its storyline. However, it is one of the highest rated unscripted franchises in cable television history,[2][3][4] and has been described as "riveting",[5] "addictive",[6] "bawdy and hilarious",[7] and a "guilty pleasure".[8]

The show has aired continuously since May 15, 2014, with an incarnation of the franchise airing nearly every Monday on VH1. In the United States, Love & Hip Hop: Atlanta usually airs in spring and through summer, followed by Love & Hip Hop: Hollywood in the fall and Love & Hip Hop: New York in the winter.

As of July 23, 2018, 307 original episodes of New York, Atlanta, Hollywood and Miami have aired over twenty-one seasons.

Franchise history[edit]

Love & Hip Hop had its origins as a 2006 pilot called Keeping Up With the Joneses, which centered around rapper Jim Jones and was produced by Stefan Springman and Toby Barraud.[9][10] When VH1 brought producer Mona Scott-Young on board, its focus shifted to include Jim's girlfriend Chrissy Lampkin and her circle of friends.[11] The series was first mentioned in VH1's programming development report in early 2010 as Diary of a Hip Hop Girlfriend.[12]

Proposed spin-offs[edit]

Since 2013, Mona Scott-Young has discussed expanding the franchise to other cities, such as Chicago,[50] New Orleans,[51] Detroit [52] and Houston.

On February 28, 2016, it was reported that potential spin-offs set in Miami and Houston were in pre-production and the producers were auditioning potential cast members.[53] However, Scott-Young denied reports of a spin-off being filmed in New Orleans, saying "I would love to do a show there but there is no Love & Hip Hop: New Orleans being cast or shot right now."[54][55] Love & Hip Hop: Houston was to feature Jhonni Blaze, Kirko Bangz, Kat St. John, Just Brittany, Nessacary, J. Prince Jr, Propain, the Sauce Twinz, the Charlo Brothers, DJ Eric, Lil' Keith, and Mehgan James as cast members. However, the show was put on hold indefinitely midway through filming in June 2016 due to concerns for the crew's safety, after several shoots were shut down by cast violence, as well as locals interrupting filming.[56] On July 7, 2017, Scott-Young said "Houston I love. We wanted to do Houston and we went into Houston to cast and we may go back to Houston." [57]

On September 23, 2014, Tammy Rivera and Waka Flocka Flame announced on social media that they would be leaving Love & Hip Hop: Atlanta to star in their own spin-off show Meet The Flockas.[58] However, the series never eventuated and Rivera returned to the main cast of Love & Hip Hop: Atlanta in 2016.

Cultural impact[edit]

During a speech at a campaign rally in North Carolina on November 4, 2016, President Barack Obama referenced the show, comparing the 2016 presidential race to reality television, saying "I mean, its like some Love & Hip Hop stuff." [61]

On a 2013 episode of the BET television series The Game, Wendy Raquel Robinson's character Tasha makes reference to the franchise, saying "Back in the day we weren't carrying ourselves like them damn crazies you see on Love & Hip Hop, we conducted ourselves as upstanding women who were looked up to in the community".

In the 2016 film Barbershop: The Next Cut, when Eve and Common's characters get into an argument over their relationship, Cedric the Entertainer's character makes a reference to the franchise, saying "This ain't no Love & Hip Hop reunion."

Lee Daniels is a fan of Love & Hip Hop: Atlanta [62] and his 2016 Fox television series Star (set in Atlanta) makes several references to the show. Joseline Hernandez appears in a recurring role as Michelle, a stripper. In the second episode, Lenny Kravitz's character is seen watching a scene of the show featuring Mimi Faust and Stevie J. In a later scene in the same episode, Jessica Dime makes a cameo appearance as a stripper. The references to the franchise continue into the second season, with the premiere featuring Star (Jude Demorest) singing a line from Love & Hip Hop: New York cast member Mariahlynn's single "Once Upon A Time (I Was a Hoe)". Additionally, Star cast member Jasmine Burke guest starred in Love & Hip Hop: Atlanta's sixth season as herself.

In the 2017 pilot of the Netflix television adaptation Dear White People, a character attempts to break up an argument between two female characters by saying "Yo, fam, can we cut the Love & Hip Hop auditions and get to it?"

In the 2018 song "1985" by J. Cole, he references the franchise: "Just remember what I told you when your shit flop/In five years you gon' be on Love & Hip-Hop".
