"Love and Hip Hop" star Mendeecees Harris -- who appeared on the show with his fiancee Yandy Smith -- has been cleared of multiple child sex charges ... that would have put him in prison for decades.

Harris was charged with sexual assault, child endangerment and promoting prostitution -- after being accused of forcing a 15-year-old girl to watch porn with him, expose herself to him, and perform oral sex on him back in 2009.

But today, Harris was acquitted on all charges in a New Jersey courtroom.

Harris' attorney released a statement after the decision, saying, "My client and his family are jubilant that these charges are now behind him ... This is real drama, not TV.”

But Harris isn't out of the woods yet -- he's currently awaiting another trial in New York, where he's charged with conspiracy to distribute 5 kilos of cocaine. He faces upwards of 5 years in prison if convicted.

Hard to find an enterprising "rapper."
The shame is his putting effort into pushing cocaine instead of ginsu knifes.

Why is it that these beautiful hip hop women on that show ended up with low-life @ss dudes? I mean is the money really worth all the negative press. Are there lives so empty that they feel that they are not worth finding a good man with a job who desires to provide for their family. Here is a Reality Check....dude is a loser and nobody has really heard about his music, that's why he is using this show to promote himself..Just keeping it real from one man to another..C'mon hip hop ladies of Atlanta..your worth more than you know.. :-)

MEME    

Even R. Kelly got acquitted, even though there was proof on the tape. I believe he did it, the only reason he beat the charge is because it was a he said/she said case.

I doubt he will beat those drug charges though.
