Love & Hip Hop NY cast are officially on strike. Half of the cast didn’t show up for taping of next season’s trailer. Contract renegotiation isn’t quite complete, as a matter of fact more money and more control is at the forefront of this debacle.
Do you think Mona Scott will budge and cave in to their demands, or is there time left on the clock for replacements?
According to Tmz Big trouble on the set of VH1′s “Love & Hip Hop, New York” … TMZ has learned, the stars of the show are refusing to go to work … and it’s all because they think they’re getting shafted in contract negotiations.
Sources close to the show tell us, all cast members were supposed to be present Tuesday in NYC to film a trailer for the upcoming season, but only half of the cast showed up. The other half stayed home in protest because negotiations for their new contracts had gone sour.
We’re told the half that did show up then got upset … believing they too were entitled to revised contracts … and stormed off.
We’re told most of the cast members want more money — as much as double their last contract — but there are other problems too … some are pissed at how they were portrayed last season and they want more say in what footage gets aired.
We’re told emergency meetings have since been called with the angry cast members … and they’re hoping to get what they want by the end of the week.
If they don’t … we’re told the cast members plan to stick to their guns and continue their strike for as long as necessary. We reached out to VH1 for comment — so far, no word back.
Mediajuicejoint- I’m quite sure they can find more washed up rappers, wannabe models, and a few groupie chicks to get the highest ratings….Mona Scott Big Pimpin
Lil Scrappy one of the stars of Vh1′s Love and Hip Hop Atlanta turned himself in yesterday for a parole violation……trying to give his probation officer a botched up urine sample and refusing to retest once the foul urine was detected.
Scrappy isn’t the brightest bulb, but damn when you’re giving a urine sample especially someone else’s it must be kept warm ……amateur.
Everybody knows in my Phaedra voice that all you need is a massive amount of water mixed with green tea intake.
Mama Ratchet was there along with fiance Erica Dixon and the Vh1 crew when Scrappy Doo turned himself in. Correct me if I’m wrong, maybe they can tape some phone conversation for the remainder filming of this season, because we know he desperately need that money.

DJ Kayotik Running Dallas Now Running The Mixtape World:
Any upcoming and aspiring rapper knows how hard it is to break into the hip hop industry and understands the crucial role DJs play as gatekeepers of new music. Known as the King of the Club, DJ Kayotik embraces his role as the pastor of the streets, bringing the music of independent and unsigned artists to the masses. Through all media even hip hop magazines.
Keep up with DJKAYOTIK
Born and raised in Queens, the Dallas transplant stays with his fingers pressed closely to the underground scene in both places. DJ Kayotik has been hard at work putting the finishing touches on Kayotik Khronikles, a series that is DJ Kayotik’s answer to the widely-popular DJ Drama Gangsta Grillz brand.
“Kayotik Khronikles is a mixtape dedicated to the independent artist movement and the mixtape has been getting great response. Doesn’t sound like the typical independent artist mixtape. Kinda out a flow to it out my touch to it, definitely a different vibe from the normal. Sometimes you get a couple mixtapes, especially independent artist mixtape, and it’s overkill. This one, you might not know the records you might not know the artists but when you hear the flow of the tape itself, it’s an easy listen.”
With over a decade in the industry, DJ Kayotik is at the forefront of rap music because he knows and respects the culture and heritage of it. Unlike a hip hop site like Worldstar or MediaTakeOut that exploits or promotes the ugliness of the industry, DJ Kayotik is more concerned with the authenticity and growth of hip hop.
“Hip hop, the culture as a whole, is a leader in the music game and if you dummy down the leader that gives opportunities for other genres to take over,” says DJ Kayotik.
What advice does the King of the Club give to unsigned artists?
Be humble. Stay hungry, aggressive. Most importantly, make a timeless record. Don’t get caught up in the hype of
trying to make a radio or iTunes hit, warns DJ Kayotik:
“There’s a lot of hits out today but as a DJ I can personally say I can’t extract and pull too many timeless records that I know that five years from now I can drop in my club set or drop on the radio or wherever I’m at and it’s still a hit. And it’s nothing against artists out today ‘cuz they’re making good music but timeless record is that great music, those classic records, whether it be hip-hop, R&B, pop, whatever it is. We’re missing a lot of timeless records.”
DJ Kayotik hopes to continue his brand, Kayotik Khronikles. Already in heavy rotation in Dallas, Kayotik Khronikles is making waves down south, in the bay area of California and in his original hometown of New York. As he continues to be the pastor of the streets, DJ Kayotik has his eyes set on a bigger prize; he would like to sign a deal as both an artist and as an A&R hoping to keep on the tradition of shepherding a new artist to the masses.

The G.O.O.D. Music emcee did an interview with Rolling Stone magazine while recording parts of his G.O.O.D. Music solo debut, and spoke on the sound of his album, why Kanye isn’t in his top 25, and our friend Drake.
On the sound of his solo debut album similar to “Hell”:
Right. That’s the irony of it all, I believe. I feel like the beauty of it is just all skin-deep. The album, sonically, has these beautiful fucking sound beds. Sonically, it has this level of upper echelon of musicality. And then when you delve deep into the lyrics, it’s like the darkness is just overpowering. It’s like sweet and sour.
On Drake’s comments at Made In America festival:
At the end of the day – I guess just speaking on our behalf – we don’t give a fuck what Drake says. Like, we don’t care. In regards to us, that shit doesn’t matter. Like, if you want to talk about the G.O.O.D. Music today and 2 Chainz, we had a mishap, because we have a record that is performed by four different people every night of the week and everybody has different edits of it. Ye’s verse – where the beat switches up and it’s really chant-y – gets edited out of a lot of people’s sets. Just to keep the momentum of the song going and just keeping the show clean and concise. None of us was told, but Chainz wasn’t told that Ye wasn’t doing his portion of the record [at Made in America].
It was a mishap, man! I mean, fuck! People have mishaps. But I mean, Chainz is so fuckin’ charismatic, he just walks out. I personally would’ve just rapped his fuckin’ verse, because I heard it, but I didn’t want to overstep my boundaries because fans didn’t know he was there. So, you know, whatever. We talked about it in the back. Chainz wasn’t bitter about it. He was just like, “I could’ve knocked it out. It could’ve been crazier had I been on time with it or had I known we were doing that edit.” All of this shit is off the cuff, and all of us is all over the country, and we’re just coming together to do the Made in America festival.
It was a thing of paying homage to this new festival. It was a great experience, it was a great look, being a part of something that Ye obviously wanted us to be a part of. It wasn’t a big production thing where we practiced this shit. Even I came out off-cue! I should’ve laid back a little bit, but we were rocking to it. That’s what the fuck we do – we don’t give a fuck. So, if that was the way you should’ve brought 2 Chainz out [Laughs.], then I’m glad Drake got to do it, and I’m glad that Chainz got the look, and I’m sure people were happy. Other than the shot thing, we don’t give a fuck. We definitely ain’t thinking about no shots.
On leaving Kanye West off last year’s Top 25 Favorite Albums list:
I’m just a fan of a certain type of music. It’s like a guy who just likes to watch horror films. I just like that controversial level of hip-hop – street hip-hop, controversial, that type of aggressive hip-hop. It’s not that I didn’t fuck with Ye’s albums – I fuck with his albums, but I dealt with them in a certain capacity and a certain lane. I kick the record and I have it in my crib, but it’s not what I’m putting on when I’m going to the club . . . until I get to my favorite song that’s ever been made, and that’s “Can’t Tell Me Nothin’.”
