‘Sisterhood of Hip Hop’ Season 2 Trailer: Mack Wilds, Pusha T, T.I., Tank, T-Pain, Irv Gotti & more

sohh-season-2

Sisterhood of Hip Hop Is Back For It’s 2nd Season And The Drama Gets Even Thicker!

The FLY series returns with our girls Bia, Brianna Perry, Diamond, Nyemiah Supreme and Siya as they head to the west coast to make their mark on the music industry. Yes, the ladies have left the right-coast for the left-coast!

With new looks, new deals and new relationships (love), the SOHH cast takes us on a quick journey of their growth, struggles, mastering that one solid record hit, trust issues and so much more.

Let’s recap for you:

  1. Bia is now in love with her new boo Magic, while enjoying her new label home at RCA Records.
  2. Brianna Perry paces for that #1 record that will take her to the top. But management refuses to write anymore checks until that happens. And, to add fuel to the fire, Brianna ends up in a pair of handcuffs from a physical incident with an alleged “Queen of The Underground” female rapper by the name of Chloe.
  3. Siya is out in the streets making it rain with 12 of her friends, going way over her budget, and loosing focus. T-Pain shows interest in signing the femcee but will she leave Tank behind?
  4. Diamond has found a new man and falls in love again, but with an incarcerated manager, the “Knuck If You Buck” artist isn’t trusting anyone at her label.
  5. Nyemiah Supreme has been boo’d up with SFPL‘s Cover Guy, Mack Wilds. She now wants to take her music in a more emotional and deeper direction, but her manager is not here for it at all. And of course, she and Diamond are at each other’s necks yet again.

Irv Gotti, Pusha T, Da Brat, Problem, Adrienne Bailon and Funkmaster Flex also jumps in this season to drop off a few advice gems to the cast, with Executive Producer of SOHH, Rapper T.I..

Check out the full trailer below:

The new season of ‘Sisterhood of Hip Hop’ premieres Tuesday, June 9 at 9/8c.

Will you be tuning in? We will!
