Viewers will also see a lot of disagreements and fights, providing enough drama to keep them glued to their televisions.
Jim Jones will be among the numerous cast members that will present. The rapper was a supporting cast member on Love & Hip Hop: New York seasons one, two, and ten, and his relationship with girlfriend Chrissy Lampkin was one of the many dynamics discussed. On the family reunion special, viewers will be able to see his personal and professional progress.
The forthcoming season of Family Reunion: Love & Hip Hop Edition is described as follows:
“For the first time, cast members from the Love & Hip Hop series take the celebration to international seas, convening in Jamaica to soak up the tropical sun and let go of their inhibitions.”
More on Jim Jones’ experience on Love & Hip Hop throughout the night.
The reality personality was reared in Harlem after being born in The Bronx, New York, to an Aruban mother and a Puerto Rican father. Jim is one of the members of the East Coast rap trio The Diplomats, along with Juelz Santana, Cam’ron, and Freekey Zekey. Joseph Guillermo “Pudie” Jones III, his kid from a prior relationship, was born in 2003. Since 2004, Jim has been in a romantic relationship with then-girlfriend and now fiancée Chrissy Lampkin. Jim was featured in a presentation video for a planned series called Keeping Up with the Joneses in 2006, which intended to follow his life as well as some behind-the-scenes turmoil in the show’s production.
The pilot, which later formed the foundation for the program Love & Hip Hop, was presented to VH1 and handed on to producer Mona Scott-Young. It was originally titled Diary of a Hip Hop Girlfriend, but the emphasis eventually switched to capturing Chrissy Lampkin’s life with her pals. On January 4, 2011, Jim was cast as a part of the Love & Hip Hop supporting cast. Jim was a supporting cast member in the first two seasons of the program. Viewers observed his rocky relationship with Chrissy Lampkin as he battled with commitment concerns, as well as his spat with his manager Yandy, which became one of the season’s most talked-about incidents.
Later, on September 7, 2012, VH1 announced that Jim and Chrissy will depart the program to appear in their own spin-off show, Chrissy & Mr. Jones. The series was a huge success since it covered the couple’s personal problems as well as their professional development, including the rapper’s commercial pursuits. The program aired for two seasons, with the finale airing on December 16, 2013, but was not renewed for a third.
Jim and Chrissy, on the other hand, made a short comeback to television in 2016 with We TV’s Jim & Chrissy: Vow or Never. The series followed the same plot lines as their last spin-off program, detailing their love problems and efforts to be married. On Marriage Boot Camp: Reality Stars 10 – Family Edition 2, the rapper participated with his mother Nancy Jones.
In 2019, the pair joined the rest of the Love & Hip Hop: New York cast for the show’s tenth anniversary season. Emjay Johnson, Estelita, Gunplay, Jenn Coreano, Alexis Skyy, Amara La Negra, Karen “KK” King, Karlie Redd, Khaotic, Lyrica Anderson, Mama Jones, Spice, and Sukihana will also feature on the upcoming season of Family Reunion: Love & Hip Hop Edition with Jim and Chrissy. Teairra Mari, Mariahlynn, Miami Tip, Nikki Baby, Phresher, Safaree Samuels, Scrapp DeLeon, Shay Johnson, Shekinah Jo, Tokyo Vanity, and Trick Daddy will also perform.
