In the Season 7 premiere episode of Love & Hip Hop, ‘All the Way Up’, while Yandy Smith struggles to keep the family together as her husband Mendeecees Harris serves his 8-year sentence in prison, Mendeecees’ friend rapper Juelz Santana returns to the show. Last time we saw him was in 2011. Juelz, now 34, prepares to return to music. But long hours in the studio are going to cause tension between Juelz and his girlfriend Kimbella, who is the mother of three of his children.
Juelz Santana of Harlem, a member of the East Coast hip hop group The Diplomats aka Dipset, has released two solo albums — From Me to U (2003, Jay Z’s Roc-A-Fella Records) and What the Game’s Been Missing! (2005). He’s released a number of mixtapes since but his fans are looking for another album. Juelz has said over the years that he’s been working on his third album Born to Lose, Built to Win. In 2012, he said his longtime friend Lil Wayne was producing it. Love & Hip Hop airs Mondays at 8pm on VH1.
