Love and Hip Hop

Posted by Laurel on 01/01/2013

Today’s crazy world of urban modeling has spawned numerous

opportunities—including television and entrepreneurship. Companies such as

Draya Michele's Mint Swim, Karlie Redd's Remy Redd, Ms. Nessa's Rich Girlz and De

Cordon by Delicia Cordon are products of expansion from urban modeling

to successful small business. The fact is that urban modeling has a community of its

own and consumers within it.

Reality television has found a way to take the not so desirable aspects of the

practices of some and turn it into entertainment, which has nearly overshadowed

standard television programming. Shows like VH1’s “Basketball Wives” and the

“Love & Hip Hop” franchises have launched the careers of many unlikely stars and

are scratching the surface of mainstream media on a daily basis. Black Men mag

interviewed some of those lovely burgeoning stars in this issue (page 82).

BM also had to swing down to Miami for a minute, and the trip inspired us to

insert a Latina edition within this issue. Check out our “Lovely Latinas Lounge” on

page 30. Nothing but hotness here!
