'Love & Hip Hop Atlanta' ratchets up the ratchetness with season 2 supertrailer

Posted By on Thu, Apr 4, 2013 at 1:46 PM

Y'all ready for this? The reality show that drew outrage, boycott petitions, and record ratings last year for VH1 returns in less than two weeks. And this time with a vengeance, from the looks of the extended trailer released yesterday. The oft-debated, long-awaited reboot of executive producer Mona Scott-Young's "Love & Hip Hop" spin-off will feature all the returning cast mates, including Stevie J (aka Rat Face), Mama Dee (aka Pimpin' Grandma), Joseline Hernandez (aka Shenellica Bettencourt aka Joe) and the remaining congregation of rappers, singers, and baby mamas on the grind. They'll also be joined by a couple of newbies: Hot 107.9's DJ Traci Steele and Stevie J's latest pet project/side chick, Ché Mack.

In the midst of the ruckus over racial and class exploitation spawned by Season One, I attempted to provide a little comic relief and rational discourse on the topic. But this year, I just plan to watch while imbibing in LHHATL drinking games like the rest of Twitter. As Source magazine editor-in-chief Kim Osorio said while witnessing a totally different ratchet outburst on this week's premiere of VH1's "The Gossip Game" - another Mona Scott-Young production - "I am guilty of being entertained."

Even Scott-Young has expressed her disbelief at the amazing levels of fuckery reached during the recording of Season Two: "Last season, I was like this is incredible, outrageous, crazy, over the top. What could they possibly do to top this? This season is better than last. It's amazing. It's amazing."

Do believe the hype.

Season 2 of "Love & Hip Hop Atlanta" premieres Mon., April 22 at 8 p.m. EST on VH1.
