After four years away from the show’s cameras, Joe Budden and Cyn Santana will return to Season 9 of VH1’s “Love & Hip Hop New York.”
Back in the Viacom-owned cable channel series’ spotlight, the former emcee and his Instagram-model partner will join Remy Ma, Papoose, Safaree, Kimbella, Juelz Santana, Maino, Yandy, Rich Dollaz and Juju on the show, which is a consistent winner in the Nielsen ratings. Additional cast members will be announced at a later date, per VH1.
“Love & Hip Hop: New York” is executive produced by Mona Scott-Young, Stephanie Gayle and Treiva Williams for Monami Entertainment and Toby Barraud, Stefan Springman, David DiGangi, Dave Patry, Richard Allen and Meredith Kisgen for Eastern. Nina L. Diaz, Liz Fine and Vivian Gomez are executive producers for VH1.
The former Slaughterhouse rapper and current podcaster has been in the headlines lately for beefing publicly with Eminem, who was technically Budden’s ex-boss at Shady Records. Budden said that Eminem buried his rap group, which also included Joell Ortiz, Kxng Crooked and Royce da 5’9″.
Budden, who panned Slim Shady’s “Revival” album and has since been the subject of response insults on Marshall Mathers’ new release, “Kamikaze,” says he is retired from rapping.
The new season of “Love & Hip Hop New York” begins Monday, Nov. 26 at 8/7c on VH1.
