In the Love & Hip Hop Atlanta episode “Blackmail,” the Puerto Rican Princess Joseline Hernandez is back in the A and she’s not too happy about having to leave Hollywood. Meanwhile, Scrapp DeLeon gets into it with his mother KK, Scrappy and Rasheeda try to work things out, and Karlie Redd “lets it all hang out” with Chester “Lyfe” Jennings.
Lyfe Jennings is the R&B and soul singer from Toledo, Ohio who The New York Times once called a “socially minded R&B singer.” He’s known for his songs “Ghetto Superman,” “More Than a Girl,” and “Must Be Nice” (see video below). He’s been to jail twice. In 1992, at the age of 19, he went to jail for ten years for arson (he and friends set a house on fire to seek revenge against a rival drug dealer). When he got out, he moved to Harlem, where he won the Apollo Theatre’s talent competition five times and got a deal with Columbia Records. But five years later, in 2008, Lyfe was arrested again and sentenced to three and a half years in prison after a domestic dispute which involved Jennings firing shots in the street and a high-speed car chase. Love & Hip Hop Atlanta airs Mondays at 8pm on VH1.
