Most of the new faces who joined Love and Hip Hop for its sixth season have already popped up in the first two episodes of the seventh, but one has yet to make an appearance.
Rapstress Mariahlynn, the feisty 26-year-old New Jersey native whose earworm of a single, “Once Upon A Time,” became an unofficial anthem to female sexuality, easily found her way into becoming one of the breakout stars of the VH1 mainstay thanks to her beauty, air-tight rhyme skills and fearless attitude.

Most LHHNY fans will remember that the self-proclaimed “pretty blonde bomb-scare” had quite the ride in Season 6, which ultimately led to a night of passion coming back to haunt her in the form of two past lovers, “Creep Squad” team members Rich Dollaz and Cisco Rosado.
When it came to light that the diminutive-statured Mariahlynn (she’s reportedly only 5′ 1 ½”) had hooked up with Rich behind Cisco’s back, the record producers tricked the hip-hop starlet into an uncomfortable confrontation at a New York City bar. In her defense, Cisco and Mariah Lynn were never in an official relationship, and the entire basis of the “Creep Squad,” as explained by assumed leader Rich, is that the all-male pack are notorious for their promiscuous ways.
In the “super trailer” for Season 7, which was released during the Season 3 Love and Hip Hop: Hollywood reunion in mid-November, we see Mariahlynn pushing forth with her rising rap career and interacting with Cisco once more; this time, in a professional manner. After her current manager, DJ Self, who also made his debut during last season’s LHHNY, seems to slack on his duties, Rosado slinks in and tries to sway the talent into working for him.
On top of this, Mariahlynn also confronts Rich Dollaz for continuing to talk badly about her after the “six minutes of pleasure” he boasted about last year, and becomes the focal point of a coup d’etat of sorts between “Creep Squad” members after Self kicks Cisco out of the collective. The preview can seen below (Mariahlynn’s section begins around 2:35).
Since filming ended on the show last year, the music star has managed to keep herself relevant with several follow-ups to “Once Upon A Time” and “Money Gun,” the latter of which she dropped in the midst of LHHNY Season 6. One of the most notable, the touching “Rainbow,” was recorded and released in tribute to the lives lost in the Orlando Pulse massacre in June of this year.
In a matter of direct significance, it turned out that just one month previous to the slaughter, which ended the lives of 49 people and injured 53 others, as reported by the Inquisitr, Mariahlynn performed to a pack house of Pulse patrons, which she displays during the opening moments of the “Rainbow” music video.
Following that, the entertainer was personally invited by model Amber Rose to take the stage at her annual SlutWalk, a gathering created to celebrate any person’s right to revel in their sexuality without being judged or condemned by another. Additionally, it was also the place, according to a post on the VH1 blog, where a long-standing social media beef with Love and Hip Hop: Hollywood cast mate Moniece Slaughter met its end (the two previously had issues over their shared experience of dating Rich Dollaz).
As for now, it is unknown just when Mariahlynn will be gracing television screens once again. When asked by a fan on Twitter on when her story for the season would finally begin, the Puerto Rican and Italian entertainer exuded some mystery on the subject.
Regardless of when she does, however, the spotlight will hopefully stay firmly planted on one of the best rising stars the show has ever produced during its seven-year run. Love and Hip Hop airs Monday nights at 8/7 p.m. c. on VH1.
