Veteran rapper and Miami representer, Trick Daddy, has officially confirmed the new season of “Love and Hip Hop Miami”, and many are anxiously awaiting the new drama that awaits in the 305.
Rumors have swirled for months that new cities would be added to the Love & Hip Hop reality show franchise.
Well Trick Daddy set the record straight, confirming to BOSSIP not only that the show has moved to Miami, but he’s joined the cast.
“I just met with Mona last week and we’re trying to do this thing right,” Trick told us. “Put some real Miami b***hes and real Miami n***as on the show.”
Trick, real name Maurice Young, said he’ll start filming at the end of the month or early May, and one of his storylines will involve him managing two upcoming artists Premadonna and Mike Smith. Premadonna’s husband is also trying to sign Trick to his own label.
“It’s all gonna come out on the show,” he said. “We’re just trying to do what we do, do what I do.”
Trick – who has already dabbled in TV work with his own spice infomercial and cooking show – said he decided to go the reality TV route because the show would give him a chance to share his unique take on life and contrast the lifestyles of Miami’s old guard with it’s new moneyed residents.
“I’m really doing Love & Hip Hop Miami because there’s a difference between Old Cutler (a sleepy highway that connects Miami to the Everglades) money and South Beach money,” he said. “Old Cutler money is grandfathered in, South Beach is investors.”
And the rapper promised not to crash and burn once he’s on TV.
“One thing I won’t do is make a fool of myself,” Trick said. “If we gone make a fool of somebody it won’t be me, so it’ll be interesting.”
