Mona Scott-Young Does A Mass Firing As The Cast For Season 9 Of ‘Love & Hip Hop: New York’ Is Announced

Are you ready to lace up your Timbs and head back east for a new season of Love & Hip Hop: New York?

Content creator and Executive Producer Mona Scott Young have revamped the cast due to poor ratings and a bad reception to Season 8 storylines.

Um, yeah, it was kind of a snoozefest, overall.

But the good news is after all of our hash-tagging and tweeting, one of our favorite couples is returning to the series by popular demand. 

VH1 has announced that Joe Budden and Cyn Santana will return for the ninth season of Love & Hip Hop and apparently they are going to be a big focal point.

Joe Budden was initially on Love And Hip Hop long ago, but he left the show, claiming that it had become "toxic." Cyn Santana was previously in a storyline relationship with Erica Mena on the show for a while. 

Going forward, Cyn and Joe's dynamic for Season 9 will be shown “in a positive light. Don't expect any [messiness]."

Kimbella & Juelz Santana are reportedly returning as well.

Maino and his girlfriend Maggie Carrie are joining the cast and reportedly going to get plenty of air-time. 

Wondering how else is staying on? 

Yandy Smith, JuJu, Jonathon Fernandez, Kiyanne, Jacquae, Anais, Ruben (Anais Husband), Rich Dollaz and Safaree will be popping up on your screen soon, while Remy Ma & Papoose will reportedly be scaling back their appearances some (à la K. Michelle in Season 4).

I love me some him😍 #MeetTheMackies #BlackLove #RemyMa #RemyMafia

Here's the breakdown on who's reportedly out! 

Snoop, Dreamdoll, Mariahlynn, Brittaney Taylor, Bianca Bonnie, Lil Mo, Karl Dargan, Navarro Gray, DJ Self, James R, Ashley Diaz, Sophia Body, Grafh and Ayisha Diaz seem to be out. 

Funnily enough, it was previously reported that MariahLynn, Bianca, Dreamdoll and Brittany Taylor were all sent packing for a kind of interesting reason.

“All of those girls were too much drama, not enough storyline. They were making the show more like the WWE than a TV show," an insider had told MTO News.

Wow. Oh and people in the know are insisting that those behind-the-scenes are implementing a no-violence policy?

Love & Hip Hop: New York—initially known as simply Love & Hip Hop—is the original installment of the Love & Hip Hop reality television franchise on VH1. The series premiered on March 6, 2011 and chronicles the lives of several people in New York City (and nearby areas, including New Jersey and Yonkers), who are involved one way or another with the hip hop industry.

Its success has produced the spin-offs Love & Hip Hop: Atlanta, Chrissy & Mr. Jones, Love & Hip Hop: Hollywood, K. Michelle: My Life, Stevie J & Joseline: Go Hollywood, Leave It To Stevie and Love & Hip Hop: Miami.

The 9th season of Love & Hip Hop: New York returns to VH1 on Monday, November 26th at 8/7pm central!
