The “Love & Hip Hop: New York” Season 9 premiere will be a special treat for die-hard fans who will witness the return of some of the most popular “LHHNY” cast members. Although hip-hop is their passion, the stars will struggle with personal drama that will not only threaten their careers, but it will also test their relationships with the ones they love most.

Before tuning into episode 1, check out the “Love & Hip Hop: New York” Season 9 cast below:

Juelz Santana And Kimbella Vanderhee

Over the weekend, Juelz proposed to Kimbella, but when the couple appears on screen during “LHHNY” Season 9, they will be dealing with less-than-stellar circumstances. After Juelz was caught trying to bring a gun through airport security, he was placed on house arrest and forced to live in his condo. The court order has left Kimbella to raise their children alone in their mansion, and she will grow tired of holding down the household on her own. All Kimbella wants Juelz to do is own up to his mistakes, but if he can’t act like the man his family needs, she is willing to end it all. However, considering Kimbella accepted his proposal, Juelz most likely did something special to win her over.

“LHHNY” Season 9 will be a stressful one for Maino, who will be busy doing everything he can to help Maggie feel comfortable after she was shot in the leg at one of his shows. While the couple is grateful she survived her injury, Maggie can’t help but think about what if?
