VH1 has finally announced the cast for Season 6 of "Love & Hip Hop: New York." While Erica Mena revealed she was quitting the series following last year's reunion, other veteran stars will return like Yandy Smith, her husband Mendeecees Harris and Rich Dollaz. They'll be joined by a few new faces, like Remy Ma, who announced her involvement several months ago.
Check out four things you should know about the new season of "Love & Hip Hop: New York," including the rest of the cast, below:
1. Who's Returning
Rashidah Ali: Rashidah is a veteran on VH1's "Love & Hip Hop: New York" and is all set to return for the show's new season. Viewers can probably expect her to bring the same level of sass and drama she's brought to past seasons. According to VH1, Rashidah will try managing a few of the new cast members.
Yandy Smith and Mendeecees Harris: Yandy is back along with her husband Mendeecees. The couple, who tied the knot on a VH1 wedding special, will juggle life as newlyweds, the addition of their daughter Skylar and blending their families. And on top of all that, Yandy and Mendeecees are searching for a bigger home and Yandy wants to start managing artists again. Mendeecees is also still dealing with some legal issues.
Rich Dollaz: Rich appeared on "Love & Hip Hop: Hollywood" with Moniece Slaughter but will return to the New York franchise for the new season. As previously reported, Rich and Moniece broke up and it appears he will be on the new series with his daughter Ashley and her mom. Rich has been flooding his Instagram page with photos of himself and his baby mama.
Peter Gunz, his wife Amina Buddafly and Tara Wallace: Peter is bringing his baby mama drama to Season 6 of "Love & Hip Hop: New York," and will supposedly try and get Tara and Amina to finally bond with each other. Last season, Peter was in a love triangle with Tara -- whom he shares two sons with -- and his wife Amina -- whom he just had a baby daughter with.
Cisco Rosado: Cisco is also one of the returning cast members. He was introduced for the first time on Season 5 with his girlfriend Diamond Strawberry. The pair had a nasty breakup on the show last year, but VH1 teases that the music producer has someone new in his life.
2. New Cast Members
Remy Ma and Papoose: Remy Ma was released from prison last year, so the show will follow her as she transitions to life as a free woman. The rapper will also be working on her career, as well as planning a wedding to Papoose.
Young B and Mariah Lyn: Young B rose to fame from the song "Chicken Noodle Soup." VH1 didn't reveal too much information about Young B, but she and Mariah will be trying to get their careers off the ground in the new season.
SexxyLexxy and MissMoeMoney: The two rappers make up the Harlem rap duo BBOD. They confirmed their involvement on the group's Instagram page, telling fans that they were excited to join the series.
DJ Self: According to VH1, DJ Self's storyline will show him balancing life as a DJ for Power 105.1 and his relationship with New York dancer Yorma.
Cardi B.: Cardi B. is popular on Instagram, a former stripper and is not afraid to speak her mind. She'll definitely bring a ton of sass to the show.
3. Who Quit
Erica Mena announced last season she was done with the VH1 series because she wanted to focus on life with Bow Wow. In recent months, the pair has been plagued with rumors that they called off their engagement.
Model Jhonni Blaze also left the show, along with Erica's ex-girlfriend Cyn Santana and Cisco's ex Diamond. It also looks like Precious Paris, Chink Santana and Chrissy Monroe won't return for Season 6.
