Rah Ali is a main cast member on season three and supporting cast member on season five and six of Love & Hip Hop: New York.
Before Love & Hip Hop
Rashidah Ali is a socialite, entrepreneur and self-professed celebrity "stiletto expert". She was born in The Bronx and raised Muslim. Her "high-end" shoe boutiques in New York and Atlanta have been featured on the reality shows Keeping Up with the Kardashians, The Real Housewives of Atlanta and Basketball Wives.
Love & Hip Hop franchise (2013–present)
Rah joins the cast of Love & Hip Hop: New York in season three, which chronicles her legal issues, including being charged for slashing a bouncer's face with a razor blade. During the season, she reveals that she had sex with Yandy's boyfriend, Mendeecees, years earlier, sparking a rivalry between the two women. At the third season reunion, she announces her engagement to her long term boyfriend, a music executive.
Rah was demoted after the season's poor reception, returning as a guest star in season four, which chronicles the breakdown of her friendship with Tahiry as she plans her wedding. She begins appearing in a supporting capacity towards the end of season five, before taking on a larger role again in season six, where she appears as Remy Ma's friend and confidante, and embarks on a management career, managing the careers of rapper rivals BBOD and Mariahlynn.
After Love & Hip Hop
Rah did not return to the show after the sixth season's reunion special, reportedly after falling out with Remy. In 2016, she made a memorable appearance on the show Black Ink Crew, where she got into a brawl with Sky. Since 2017, Rah has garnered attention from tabloids and gossip blogs for her friendship with rapper Nicki Minaj, including being referenced in Nicki's diss track "No Frauds" and appearing in its music video, and getting into a much-publicised physical altercation with former co-star Cardi B at New York Fashion Week.
