Rocko Da Don aka Rodney Hill, Jr. has always been a favorite of mine. He and his ex-fiance (R&B diva Monica) have always been friends of the site, so I’ve always shown them both equal amounts of love.
A few years back, Rocko appeared alongside Mo on her BET reality show, “Still Standing,” but he really didn’t have much too much camera time.
Now the producer/rapper/entrepreneur is rumored to have joined the cast of the 2nd season of Love & Hip-Hop Atlanta as the cast of the popular VH1 reality series goes through transition.
Rocko posted the following photo online a few days ago, and it seems all signs point to “yes,” regarding talk of his joining the cast…
Atlanta’s UptownMagazine is also reporting the Rocko may have made that move to reality television, stating:
Speculation has it that Rocko has joined the show to promote his new studio album, which has gained momentum in the underground rap scene.
However, Monica is said to be against Rocko appearing in the show. She has allegedly offered to pay him an undisclosed amount of money to stop him from joining the cast.
That last part about Mo offering Rocko money is rather interesting.
I sincerely doubt that she’d want to block his success, but we all know that appearing on the show WOULD lead more people to dig into his background and I don’t know if that’s a particularly good thing.
Anywhoo… I told you weeks ago that LHHA creator/producer Mona Scott-Young was interviewing potentials for the new season, and they have been filming around town for weeks now.
[Sidebar: I doubt that “wassername” will be going anywhere anytime soon, being that she’s represented by Mona’s “Monami” management company.]
What do you think about Rocko joining Love & Hip Hop Atlanta?
What other ATL ‘hip-hoppers’ would be good additions to the Atlanta cast?
