This month, Draya Michele and Game share the cover of Urban Ink magazine, and dare we say they two of them together look HOT? Of course Draya looks amazing no matter what, but drape a leather bikini on the woman and hello! She gives us fever. And Game doesn’t look so bad himself, all that working out is definitely showing.
(We also love that the cover features the girls of Black Ink Crew, too!) For a closer look at the cover, click after the jump.

“Are you sleeping with Joe Budden or not?” Charlamagne asked Love And Hip Hop star Raqi Thunda immediately after introducing her in this interview from today’s Breakfast Club show. “Absolutely not,” Raqi responds. “Never.”
From there, the interview gets even meatier (pardon the pun) because Raqi does admit she’s seen him naked because he’s a free spirit who doesn’t care who sees his junk. In this clip, Raqi discusses her relationships with Joe and Tahiry, Joe’s drug use, and why she’s not the type of person to tell all. She also addresses her nickname, “I.P.” so check out the interview above. In the clip below, Lore’l also joined the show to discuss her beef with Erica Mena. Read more…
Each week, we bring you the best live-tweets written by the cast of Love And Hip Hop as they watch the show in hopes that their behavior on Twitter might just outshine their behavior on-screen. This week, there’s actually more off-screen drama than we ever imagined. The issues between Erica and Lore’l have spun out of control and the ladies have some seriously harsh words and accusations for one another online, and Raqi Thunda‘s not holding her tongue either, although she hopes maybe she and Joe Budden can eventually work things out. Scroll through the best tweets from the cast in our gallery below to get the full story.
Joe Budden‘s a new face on Love And Hip Hop, but he’s been all over the music scene for quite a while. Over the years, he’s hung out with some of the biggest names in the game, from Usher to Reverend Run to Ice-T and Coco, who also know a thing or two about transitioning from music to the reality world.
Check out some of our favorite pics of Joe throughout the years hanging out with his pals, plus a shot of him with Tahiry while they were still together, and of course a gratuitous shirtless shot of him on stage, just because we couldn’t resist.

“It’s time for a shake-up on this boat. Somebody’s got to go overboard,” Ceaser, the boss who feels like he hasn’t been treated as an authority figure much lately, says at the beginning of Black Ink Crew. There’s been a lot of questionable behavior from his subordinates lately, and O’S**t, one of his main tattoo artists, is guilty of barely showing up and doing shoddy work when he does. Ceaser has just about had enough. Read more…
On tonight’s Black Ink Crew, we learned that one of Alex‘s many talents is as a model, and she showed us her stuff during a photo shoot for Urban Ink magazine. O’S**t was so impressed with her posing (and the fact that he was wedged in near “her cheeks”) that he declared that he was going to marry her. So of course we thought you needed a closer look at her in action.
Ever wish you were a fly on the wall to see how the casts of reality shows react when they watch their show for the first time? We’ve always been a little curious to know what they think when they watch all the drama (and occasional fighting and smack talk directed at them), which is why we have a brand new web series here on VH1.com called “Check Yourself.” The series features the cast of Love And Hip Hop as they view the show in real time and react accordingly. This week’s first clip features Raqi and Joe Budden whose confrontation at SOB’s left their friendship in question.
“Damn, he was brutal,” Raqi says as she watches Joe cut her down. “It definitely marked the end of our friendship,” she reveals. But how does Joe see things? He applauds himself and says “Bravo! That’s exactly how you’re supposed to handle it.” Later, find out what makes Jen Bayer embarrassed about this episode and why she was so emotional, and hear Rich talk about his crush on Tahiry.
