Joe Budden Signs On For VH1's 'Love & Hip Hop'

It's been rumored for awhile now that Joe Budden would be joining the cast of VH1's upcoming season of "Love & Hip Hop," based in New York, and Joey has pretty much confirmed that the news is true.

In an interview with Angie Martinez on Hot 97 via Global Grind, the Slaughterhouse rapper had this to say about his involvement with the show: "People hear Love and Hip-Hop and they automatically hear baffoonery. You guys do know there was a whole era of Love and Hip Hop before Stevie J? You also know I don't carry myself like that in real life so I am not going to let VH1 depict me in a way where I am unsatisfied. I don't conform in the music business, I'm not going to conform for TV."

Budden is expected to appear on the show with his new girlfriend Kaylin Garcia. "Love & Hip Hop" producer Mona Scott Young had this to say about the show during an appearance on RapFix Live," in response to rumors that it was scripted. "We don't feed you information. It's not scripted," Scott-Young said. "That's the most ridiculous thing that I hear all the time. There are like 40-something people on set. Do you think I can get them all to keep the secret? What do they do with script afterwards, eat it? This is their lives!"

Consequence is also set to appear on the new season.
