Whether she’s getting arrested, in the throes of battle with her Love and Hip Hop ATLcastmates or having a “calming” glass of chardonnay, millions of people have been captivated by the infamous Tommie! So, who is the woman behind numerous mugshots and viral clips?
This past year has been crazy for reality tv star Tommie. Truth documentary follows Tommie throughout her journey this past year as she tries to navigate through the industry as an independent artist dealing with life struggles yet maintaining a core fanbase that wants to see her win.
The documentary also shows small victories for Tommie; like meeting artist Rihanna who noticed and approached Tommie during Paris Fashion Week to give her support for Tommie’s endeavors.
“Ya’ll gotta understand some of this,” states Tommie. She continues “ I know I’m not a perfect person but I’m trying. Im trying to find peace within myself so I can be a better role model to my young fans, a better person overall and most importantly a better mom to my girls.”
The documentary, directed by @illhd, is striking in its vibrant rawness and gritty nature. The beauty lies in the authenticity of footage showing both its subjects vulnerability and defensive strength. @illhd also directed Tommie’s music video for her single “Truth”. The video has already gained close to 300,000 views after only 4 days of its release! The video has been met with rave reviews by audiences! Many stating they “have a whole new respect for Tommie” and that they “are rooting for her success and recovery.”
DJ Paul of Three 6 Mafia recently released another solo mixtape titled, M.4.L (Mafia 4 Life) for those of us that appreciate legendary rap and Academy Award winning production. As we’re wrapping up the final months of 2016, artists are pulling out their finishing moves for the year and DJ Paul is right on time with his. On October 28th, the King of Memphis plans to release an album to follow up the mixtape titled, YOTS, Year of the Six. To keep your business, brand, and coins in the bank where they should be as an artist it takes more than making a hot song to stay on top of things and if anyone knows how to achieve a different level of success it’s safe to say DJ Paul can attest to that.
I got the chance to speak with DJ Paul about his new music, what it takes to get in the studio with him, reality TV, and how he created his own BBQ seasoning and sauce. Read our interview below to see what he’s been up to and has coming up!

If you know me then you know the only person I really care about on this show is former B2K member Lil Fizz, that man has been on my “Husband in my head” list since I was in 7th grade. After B2K broke up he disappeared which actually worries me for a show like this. The people who already have their lives out there for the public aren’t too taken aback by the backlash and drama these shows bring, but for years Lil Fizz hasn’t had a Twitter and the one he had never even used.
I’m also interested to see who else is on the show being that the press release is claiming to have more cast mates.
Will you be watching? How do you think this season will compare to LHH and LHHATL?
