Following a four year hiatus, Joe Budden and his girlfriend, Cyn Santana, are rejoining the cast of Love & Hip Hop: New York, according to Variety.
Both Budden and Santana appeared on the fourth season of the reality show in 2014, but they had two separate storylines. At the time, the rapper was attempting to regain his sobriety and to mend things with long-time ex, Tahiry Jose. Santana was dating castmember Erica Mena at the time.
Budden and Santana entered into a relationship in 2016 and welcomed their son, Lexington, in December 2017. During the past four years, the New Jersey native has rebranded himself. He retired as a rapper, became the host of Revolt’s State of the Culture, and brought The Joe Budden Podcast to the Spotify network.
The couple will join Remy Ma, Papoose, Safaree, Kimbella and Juelz Santana and others for the upcoming season.
Season 9 of the reality series returns to VH1 on Nov. 26 at 8 p.m.
