Exclusive: Rapper Erica Banks Will Appear On Upcoming Season Of ‘Love & Hip Hop: Atlanta’

Erica Banks can add “reality TV star” to her résumé!

theJasmineBrand exclusively reports that rapper Erica Banks, 24, will allegedly be making an appearance on the upcoming season of “Love & Hip Hop: Atlanta” and she has already started filming with the cast. According to our sources, it’s speculated that Erica Banks will be introduced on the show as a close friend of main cast member Sierra Gates. The ladies have already proven they have great chemistry on screen earlier this month when the “Buss It” artist appeared on an episode of Sierra Gates’ “Ghetto Girlz Eat” YouTube cooking series.

It’s unclear how many episodes Erica Banks will appear in for Season 11 of the popular reality series, however, insiders have revealed to us she was there for filming the night her friend Sierra got into a heated dispute with cast regular/rapper Lil Scrappy, 39. The verbal dispute between the co-stars took place last week reportedly outside of an Atlanta-based restaurant and lounge. During the argument, Lil Scrappy allegedly called Sierra Gates a “b*tch” and she fired back saying at least she’s a rich one.

Prior to the night going south, we’re told Erica Banks was all smiles as she partied alongside her new co-stars inside the establishment. Images have since surfaced online of Banks next to “Love & Hip Hop: Atlanta” stars Scrappy, Yung Joc, 42, and (a woman that appears to be) Erica Mena, 39, the same night the verbal altercation occurred.

Following the crazy night out, Sierra left a comment under one of Banks’ Instagram posts, letting her know she “had a blast” with the Texas native.

“Love & Hip Hop: Atlanta” initially premiered in 2012, on VH1. The series has featured many notable players in the music scene, including K. Michelle, 41, Stevie J, 51, and Rasheeda, 46. It was recently announced that the series has been moved to MTV and will follow a more “docu approach to storytelling.” Season 11 is set to kick off this summer.
