Scrapp De Leon makes his return out of prison and is in a halfway house. We see Faith Evans and Stevie J as a couple. Original cast members Scrappy, his mom Momma Dee and Rasheeda's hubby Kirk Frost are back. Rapper Tokyo Vanity, Scrappy's pregnant wife Bambi, salon owner Sierra (who goes back to season 6) and Erica Dixon (a former full-time cast member and Scrappy's ex) will be back as well.
During the trailer, Mimi gets shot at. She also gets peeved at Stevie J because their daughter met Faith and Mimi didn’t know about it until after the fact.
Newcomers include hairstylist Shakinah Anderson, a good friend of Tameka "Tiny" Harris; female rapper Akbar J; Pooh; and Che Mack, a rapper who made a few appearances seasons one and two.
