Remy Ma and Papoose Are Prepping For a Spin-Off Show? #LHHNY Couple Drops New Site ‘Meet The Mackies’

meet-the-mackies

Could the new slogan of the site be a hint for a new spin-off show? Papoose & Remy Ma expand their brand with a new venture!

VH1‘s Love & Hip-Hop stars Papoose and Remy Ma are pleased to announce the launch of their new website meetthemackies.com.

Remy gave some insight on their “Black Love”:

“When it’s real… it’s ok to wear your heart on sleeve. #BlackLove comes in many different colors; it’s not about race, ethnicity, or nationality. It’s about being able to love and have real love through hardships and adversity. #BlackLove is unconditional, unbreakable, & unashamed—it’s forever.”

In an effort to connect with their fans directly, the new destination gives fans access to the same customized pieces of gear and merchandise that #BlackLove couple wear themselves.

Pap and Remy are starting a new stage in their careers and are opening this store and website to continue growing their respective brands, providing fans with vital information about their upcoming shows, make exclusive music available and make their styles accessible to people who follow their musical and television careers.

This new all inclusive web-portal is just the beginning for them, as they are discussing new business endeavors in addition to the website.

Papoose says:

“People that know me know loyalty and love is everything to me. If you believe in showing genuine love to your significant other, you’re loved ones and family and friends.  Remy and I consider our fans to be family, so want to spread that love to them as well!”

Since being apart of their new home of #LHHNY, the talented duo have gained much respect and have been labeled as the “real couple”, along with cohorts, married pair Yandy and Mandeecees. Many know that the show can come with a bit of forced relationships, but with Remy and Papoose added to the mix, they wanted to let the world know that this is the real deal.

Congrats to them both! We’re sure this new spin-off is in the works! 🙂

Meet the Cast:
Eva Marcille’s acting career is on fire with three TV shows on the air: About the Business, Real Husbands of Hollywood and Born Again Virgin. However, Eva knows that the entertainment business can be fickle, so she is diversifying by investing in a luxury container home business with her mother and project manager, Krista Kolley – with the ultimate goal of building a Container Home Community empire! We will watch Eva navigate the challenges of taking on a totally new business venture, and working with family and friends. Meanwhile, Eva also looks forward to spending more quality time with her daughter, while she juggles high-profile new and old flames in her dating life.

Crystal Renay is a successful model facing two big milestones: she is newly engaged to singer, Ne-Yo, and pregnant with her long-sought-after first child. With her A-list wedding approaching and a baby on the way, the former video vixen hires friend Sparkle to plan the big event to ease some of the stress. Will Crystal’s lofty demands push her friendship over the edge? Meanwhile, Crystal also tries to pull a career about-face and start her own infant clothing line, but will this bridezilla have the time and energy?

EJ King is a celebrity stylist wrapping up a world tour with Chris Brown, and is looking to branch out in the world of fashion. We will follow EJ as he works to capitalize on the success of the tour, and design his own fashion line for Cross Colours. Does EJ have what it takes to transition from stylist to fashion mogul? EJ is also on the hunt for love, but despite recently losing 60 pounds, EJ still struggles with his self-esteem. He soon considers taking drastic steps to alter his appearance, but will those changes lead to love and happiness?

Danielle Crawley heads up marketing for Nick Cannon’s Ncredible Entertainment, but she is spreading her wings by launching her own casting company. We will watch as Danielle proves that she has an eye for talent and running her own business. Danielle will also be forced to make tough choices when former-client and rising vocal talent, Alex Amore, signs with close friends Sparkle and Krista. Will business get territorial and dirty among the friends?

Sparkle Holmes owns A List Group LA, a successful events, public relations and talent management company, which caters to stars like Nelly and Chris Brown. Sparkle is managing her model friend, Crystal Renay, and has taken the lead in planning all the festivities surrounding her wedding to hit maker, Ne-Yo. Crystal recently brought in a new business partner, Krista Kolley, but their working styles soon clash. Can the new partners deliver flawless events without imploding? Personally, Sparkle recently ended a 12-year romantic relationship with a woman, and is now struggling to find love – and her identity – as she finds herself attracted to men.

Fly News: Waka Flocka Flame Release Free Album ‘Flockaveli 1.5’ Today

waka-flocka-flame

Today, rapper and LHHATL star Waka Flocka Flame released Flockaveli 1.5 as a completely free download!

The album, executive produced by Southside and featuring production by hit-makers Southside & Metro Boomin (808 Mafia), Terantino, TM88, YK, Black Metaphor, Fuse, B Wheezy and DJ Spinz, is a free 15-song gift to fans that have been patiently waiting for Flockaveli 2.

Producers Southside and Metro Boomin are among the industry’s finest hit-makers of now contributing the biggest smash records of the year including production on Future and Drake’s chart-topping collaborative mixtape “What a Time to be Alive.”

Southside’s latest hits also include Future’s “Fuck Up Some Commas,” “Blow A Bag,” “Slave Master,” and “Rich $ex.” And, Metro Boomin’s most recent hits are courtesy of Kid Ink’s, “Like A Hot Boyy,” and Travis $cott’s “3500.”

Last week, Waka Flocka Flame previewed ‘Flockaveli 1.5’ with releasing “Blue or Red,” a booming street anthem.

As has been reported by several sources, Waka Flocka Flame has made multiple demands to be relieved of his contract with Atlantic Records. He has gone as far as releasing the label’s phone number over his social media channels and asking his fans to call the label and demand his release. Not one to sit idly by, Waka rewards fans that have been patiently waiting for a new album, after significant delays, with 12 brand new records. The artist is referring to this album as ‘Flockaveli 1.5’ hinting to his fans that ‘Flockaveli 2’ is indeed still forthcoming, pending resolution to his dispute with Atlantic Records.

Brick Bronson, President of 36BRICKHOUSE says:

“Waka Flocka Flame and 36BRICKHOUSE are constantly progressing forward. The fans have been waiting for new music from Waka Flocka Flame long enough and we’re going to give it to them.”

And the General, Waka Flocka Flame says to his fans:

“Flockaveli 2 is coming. At every show, my fans ask me for new music so I’m not going to have them wait any longer. Despite whatever issues I have with my label, you’re getting what is basically a whole album as a free download. Introducing Flockaveli 1.5. This is how I say thank you to my fans who’ve been patient and supportive all this time.”

Waka has been touring non-stop for the past few years, most recently with DJ Whoo Kid on the party tour of the year, the Turn Up Godz Tour.

Earlier this year, Waka Flocka Flame delivered “Game On,” featuring Good Charlotte; the theme song for the feature film, Pixels. The record was used by the ABC network during the 2015 NBA Finals.
