music-eazy-e-sonThe rumor mills are buzzing.
Word around the camp fire is a new reality show, “Seeds Of Hip-Hop” is currently being shopped to MTV, VH1 and E!.

According to TMZ, “Seeds Of Hip-Hop” will star Eazy E’s son, Eric “Lil Eazy” Wright Jr., Dr. Dre’s son, Curtis Young, Jam Master Jay’s son, Jason Mizell Jr., MC Ren’s son, Anthony Dunbar, and E-40′s son, Droop E.

The Hip Hop off springs have started their own music career and are ready to show the world the gift and the curse of being the child of a Hip Hop legend.

This sounds promising, and hopefully we can keep the ratchet behavior to a minimum. But that might be asking for too much. Will you be watching?

Too $hort Newest Cast Member On VH1’s Couples Therapy

 

VH1’s Couples Therapy is back for a second season with another all-star cast.

Maybe years of being a self-proclaimed pimp is catching up. We would never expect Too $hort to seek relationship advise especially for the world to see but the Oakland native will sit down on the therapist couch this season.

Too $hort and Monica Payne will be featured this season and will  examine the complications in their relationship with therapist/host Dr. Jen Berman.

Also taking a seat on the therapist couch this season are Alex McCord and Simon van Kempen, Shayne and Nik Lamas-Richie,  Joel “JoJo” and Tashaunda “Tiny” Hailey, and Doug Hutchison And Courtney Stodden

Season two of Couples Therapy will premiere on VH1 Wednesday, October 3 at 10 p.m. ET/PT. From the looks of this cast it will not be a disappointment.

We’re sure Dr. Jen will have a thing or two to say about Too $horts favorite word. We’ll be tuned in.. will you?
