Despite spending the latter part of last year in Texas trying to craft Love & Hip Hop Houston with an edgy cast, producers ultimately decided to ditch the project after finding themselves on the receiving end of verbal threats of bodily harm from the locals and having to constantly halt filming due to outbreaks of violence between cast members.

Now with their sights set on Miami, production is seemingly shifting gears and taking a safer route by bringing in a fresh batch of industry taste-makers and gems from the Latin music scene to round out the roster. Get familiar with the official cast below and catch the premiere of Love & Hip Hop Miami in January.
