You can expect the female cast of“Love & Hip Hop: Atlanta” to kick up some dust this season, but the guys get into their fair share of drama as well. A preview trailer for the rest of the upcoming season shows Lil Scrappy and record producer Stevie J. getting into a heated argument. Of course the tease is cut so we don’t see much of the action, but the clip does show an agitated Scrap punching a wall after he and Stevie go nose-to-nose.
“It was a situation; it was a real situation,” Scrap said when he appeared on “RapFix Live” on Wednesday.
According to Scrappy, the argument began after Stevie disrespected recurring castmember Erica, Scrappy’s child’s mother. The ATL MC feels that if Stevie had a problem with Erica, he should’ve bypassed her and addressed Scrappy instead. “Like I told him, you can walk off, you don’t gotta disrespect no female,” he said. “If you really wanna do something, ask her where her man at and tell him you wanna throw hands, you wanna take the fade, and I would’ve been happy to do that.”
Though Stevie and Scrappy are accomplished musicians and both now reside in the same city, Scrap says prior to the show neither he nor Erica had a personal connection to the multiplatinum producer, who has done work for the likes of Diddy, Jay-Z and Mariah Carey. “He didn’t even ask — he didn’t know who she was. All he knew is she was a part of the situation and he wanted to pop off,” Scrappy said.
The “Money in the Bank” MC wouldn’t give away the details of the fisticuffs, but he did shoot down whispers that he, his mother and his child’s mother were following a script. “I don’t know about the whole show and how [Stevie J.] do his end. I know my team Scrappy — we real on that side,” he said.
