This Is Hot 97 is a show unlike most other current reality shows out there these days. For starters, don’t call it a “reality show.” Instead, you can refer to it as the cast does, as an “unscripted comedy series.” “This is a show about the Hot 97 hallways,” DJ Cipha Sounds explains. And as for the ratchet factor? There is none. “This show is about positive vibes and family,” Ebro told fans at the This Is Hot 97 premiere party this week. “If y’all want more drama then this show ain’t for you.”
Watch the cast panel and interviews from the premiere party in the clip above to learn more about the show which has it’s official premiere this Monday at 10:30 PM ET/PT!
Love & Hip Hop Atlanta star Benzino (also known as Raymond Scott) was shot today in Boston while riding in his mother’s funeral procession. HipHopHollywood reports that Benzino’s car was shot at by another vehicle while he was on his way to the funeral service and he was taken to the Duxbury, MA police station and later to South Shore Hospital where he remains in stable condition.
The Boston Globe also reports:
“The shooting occurred after an argument between family members, but investigators are now working to determine what sparked the violence. In his statement, Cruz said that a person driving a Bentley shot the driver of a red Dodge SUV, who got out of his car and was taken to the Duxbury Police Department by a passerby, before being taken to the hospital.”
The shooter, who is thought to be a relative, was apprehended and charged with armed assault with intent to murder. We’ll keep fans updated with more news as it comes and we wish Zino the best, and a very speedy recovery.

We’d like to extend our well-wishes to Basketball Wives star Tami Roman who was hospitalized earlier this week after going into diabetic shock and fainting in Houston, TX on Wednesday. Tami fell unconscious and was discovered by her daughter who called 911. She was released from the hospital yesterday, and released the statement above in Instagram thanking her fans for their support. Tami, your VH1 family wishes you a speedy recovery, get some rest!
A word to anyone who might be considering applying for a job at New York’s legendary Hot 97 radio station: if you don’t have a sense of humor, you need not apply. If you haven’t seen the first episode sneak peek of This Is Hot 97, you’re missing out on one pf the best new shows on television, the reason being that everyone at the station is hilarious. (And they all get along, which is another refreshing characteristic you don’t see much of on the reality TV scene.)
We got to spend the morning with show stars and morning show hosts Ebro, Rosenberg, Laura Stylez, and Cipha Sounds earlier this week to catch them doing what they do best, and as it turns out, they’re such successful DJs because they’re natural born conversationalists. In their down time, off-air, they spent the morning discussing the plot twists of True Detective, their love for fellow VH1 star Tiny Harris, and Rosenberg’s slimming secret weapon: prunes. In short, it was like hanging with your closest friends, if your closest friends also had one of the most successful radio shows in New York City.
Check out all the photos from our day at Hot 97 and tune in to the TV premiere of the show this Monday at 10:30PM ET/PT!
