Love & Hip Hop Wiki

Love & Hip Hop: New York (titled Love & Hip Hop in seasons 1-7) is the first installment of the Love & Hip Hop franchise.

Series synopsis[]


Love & Hip Hop: New York revolves around the everyday lives of women working in the male-dominated world of hip hop. The first two seasons focus on the personal and professional struggles of four women, two of which are girlfriends of famous rappers, and two are aspiring recording artists. Subsequent seasons expanded to include talent managers and producers, DJs and radio personalities, stylists, video vixens, glamour models and groupies.


Over nine seasons, 33 people have appeared in the opening credits as leading cast members. The show features a sprawling supporting cast, with 52 people credited as "additional cast" or "featured" in the show's end credits. These secondary cast members appear in green screen confessional segments and (for the most part) have the same amount of screen time and storyline focus as the show's main cast members.
