We are one day away from Love & Hip Hop: Atlanta Season 7, and to help get fans ready for the new season, I took it upon myself to get some info on some of the new cast members that will appear this season.

But before I do that, I’m sad to inform you guys that Tammy Rivera and fan favorite Joseline Hernandez will not be returning this go round.


Though she’s not a NEW cast member, Erica Mena has been added to the series, after appearing originally on Love & Hip Hop: New York for 3 seasons, where she was notorious for starting all types of drama. Now she’s focused on her music career and she’s working with Stevie J’s Danger Zone record label:

Along with Erica comes her boyfriend, Cliff Dixon, who is the brother of NBA superstar Kevin Durant. The former college basketball player was formerly linked to model India Love, and interestingly, he’s VERY devoted to Erica…let’s see how long that’ll last shall we?

One of the most buzzed about new cast-members is baller Tamera Young, who has been in a relationship with original castmember MiMi Faust since last year. Tamera currently plays for the Las Vegas Aces of the WNBA. She and Mimi’s former friend Melissa Scott will apparently have some issues, as seen during the trailer for the new season:

New Orleans and Louisiana’s very own, Tokyo Vanity is best known for her viral hit That’s My Best Friend, but my fellow Louisianians know her for much more, including being a body positive advocate, her comedic chops, and being a total bad bitch overall:

Originally one of the cast members for the Houston version of the hit franchise, rapper Just Brittany has found herself a new home in Atlanta, and it’s coming with some interesting problems. After appearing on the VH1 competition series Signed, Just Brittany was signed to Rick RossMayback Music label but Stevie J is hoping to have her sign to his “Danger Zone Label.” Stevie is clearly still upset with the photo that Rozay took with his “ex-wife” and baby mama Joseline Hernanzez…this will be interesting:

I’m not sure how Stevie will have time for Brittany as he should be focusing on his new artist, Estelita, the Panamanian Goddess, who may be having a sexual relationship with the playboy:

Keely The Boss aka Keely Hill is a music executive from Detroit. According to EmpireBooBooKitty, She attended Hampton University and in 2004 she landed an internship at Def Jam. Keely has worked with some of the most successful artists in the world including Rihanna, Kanye West and Mariah Carey.

After finding out that her husband Shooter Gates cheated on her with her former friend and assistant Moriah Lee, returning supporting cast member Sierra Gates returns with a new boyfriend, BK Brasco. BK is rapper who was previously signed to Timbaland and Interscope. Apparently, he came to Atlanta to “relaunch” his career:

Which leads to Playjoy, an artist that BK manages. Playjoy is also really close to Karen “KK” King and Playjoy gets into some altercations with fan favorite and gossip aficionado Karlie Redd:

Spice is a well-known dancehall artist and is friends with Karlie Redd, Mimi Faust, Jessica Dime and Rasheeda. In the first episode, she reveals that she is looking to move to Atlanta to further her music career:
