Young Dro is finally ready for the reality show spotlight, as he will be appearing on the sixth season of VH1’s hit show Love & Hip Hop: Atlanta.

Young Dro coming to LHHATL

The ATL rapper was recently a guest on Power 105.1’s The Breakfast Club, where he revealed the news. He will not be a main character, but will have a reoccurring role on the show.

“I just want to finish out what me and Joseline did,” he told Charlamagne Tha God, Angela Yee and DJ Envy, referring to footage that aired of himself and Hernandez that sparked dating rumors. “When we did the studio thing…I thought that was just it. But the network been looking for me. ‘We want Dro.’ I wasn’t in the position to be on anybodies TV. I didn’t want to let anybody in my personal business. But at the same time, I wanted to finish out what me and her started.”

After the video in question came out earlier this year, Dro was questioned about whether he was the father of Joseline’s child during an interview. He answered “no comment” then. During the Breakfast Club interview he was a little more forthcoming. “I’m definitely not dating [Stevie J’s] girl,” he said.

When asked if he would be on the show beefing with Stevie J over his affiliation with Hernandez, the “Shoulder Lean” rapper responded, “That’s one thing I told them I will not do.”
