Somaya Reece Is All About Releasing New Music In 2012, Starting With A New Mixtape


A few weeks back, we showed off a video featuring the collaboration between Louis James and Somaya Reece for a song called “Eh Mama,” and now the song is finally available in iTunes. But Miss Reece isn’t done, she let us know that part two of the Rebel With A Cause mixtape series she’s been working on is also ready for download. This new compilation, called Blurr The Lines, is available for download here. Personally, we think she’s looking fierce on this cover, but then again, we always think she looks fierce.

Oh, and if you’ve been missing Somaya on Love And Hip Hop lately, don’t worry, she’ll be back soon. She and LHH producer Mona Scott Young cleared up her absence on her blog this week, with Young explaining “With 6 cast members to follow it sometimes becomes difficult to get everyone in every episode so what we do is try to follow the stories that are happening as they are happening. It would not be smart storytelling to focus on a cast member just to make sure they’re represented in an episode when there is a great story unfolding with another cast member that needs coverage. There is only so much time per episode to cover story and we have to make tough choices every day but rest assured, Somaya is definitely still very much part of the cast and will make appearances in coming episodes.”

Exclusive: Chrissy Lampkin Shows Off Her Gorgeous Engagement Ring In This Head To Toe Style Clip


Love And Hip Hop‘s Chrissy Lampkin is a girl after our own heart, at least when it comes to dressing. She admits in this Head To Toe video we shot with her recently that sometimes her style is based on “what’s comfortable and what’s clean.” A-MEN. When it comes to the rest of her style sense, we love everything she has to say about her clothes. For instance, regarding her t-shirt: “It could also double as pajamas.” About her jeans: “I can’t really breathe in them right now…but they’re doing great things for my legs.” About the shoes: “They kind of look like I kicked a deer in the butt.”

And of course, even though she might take a casual approach to clothing, there’s nothing casual about the fact that Miss Chrissy is now brandishing a gorgeous, huge new rock on her finger, courtesy of her man Jim Jones. Get a close-up look at all of Chrissy’s signature pieces, including the newest, most impressive one, in the video above, and if you missed the big proposal, which happened on last night’s episode, check out the show online or read our recap of it here.

January first means two things to most people: Hangovers and resolutions to never drink again. Or resolutions to never consume something again, be it alcohol, chocolate, entire pies in one sitting…whatever.
