Atlanta rap veteran Lil Scrappy is probably known more for his reality TV work than his music these days. It’s been 15 years since his biggest hit song dropped, but he’s remained relevant as a regular cast member in the popular “Love & Hip-Hop” TV franchise.
Lil Scrappy reveals the downside of reality TV
During an interview on the Big Facts podcast, Lil Scrappy explained his decision in 2012 to have his day-to-day filmed for “Love & Hip-Hop.” The “Money In The Bank” hitmaker said he wanted to get consistent paychecks outside of rap, but admitted that the show has taken a toll on his relationships.
“[They] had already told us that it’s not like [cameras] are going to be with me all day, every day. They just want my love life, but even in that, if you’re not careful, it’ll f*ck your whole love life up. And it done f*ck every last one of mine up — just destroyed it.”

Apryl Jones reveals why she joined ‘Love & Hip-Hop’
“Love & Hip-Hop” star Apryl Jones claims she initially didn’t want to get into reality TV. She joined the show to help her then-boyfriend and father of her children, R&B singer Omarion, dispel rumors about his sexuality.
“That whole situation with me and O on “Love & Hip-Hop” was completely controlled. I never even wanted to do freakin’ reality TV. His management thought it would be good for him to show who he was and his life because there were gay rumors. So to show he was in a relationship with a woman and having kids and all that, they thought it would be great. If you love somebody you’re going to do it, but it just felt very controlled. I wasn’t really myself.”
