Benzino is a supporting cast member on the first three seasons of Love & Hip Hop: Atlanta.
Before Love & Hip HopEdit
Benzino is a hip hop media executive, record producer and rapper, originally from Boston, Massachusetts. He rose to notoriety as the founder of hip hop magazine The Source and through his much publicised feud with rapper Eminem.
Love & Hip Hop franchise (2012–2014)Edit
Benzino is introduced on Love & Hip Hop: Atlanta as Stevie J's best friend and confidante. During the season, he begins dating Karlie Redd. They break up in the finale, after he proposes to her before immediately reneging and taking back the ring. In season two, he comes into conflict with Joseline after releasing a diss track "Smashed Da Homie", in which he implies the two had sex. While filming season three, Benzino was shot and wounded by his nephew at his mother's funeral. Later in the season, he proposes to his girlfriend Althea Heart, which she accepts. He and Althea have a major falling out with both Stevie J and Joseline, leading to a violent altercation between the four at the season's reunion special. The couple were then fired from the show, after Benzino allegedly threatened to kill one of the show's producers.
Benzino also appears in the special Dirty Little Secrets.
After Love & Hip HopEdit
In 2015, he and Althea appeared in We TV's Marriage Boot Camp: Reality Stars 4, and welcomed a son, Zino Antonio Scott Jr. They would also appear in TV One's The Next :15. Since 2016, the couple have made headlines in the tabloids for their violent break up and subsequent legal dramas.
